Listing types

When you add a page type to a content menu, you can set the listing type to control how the pages of that type will be listed. 

  1. From the Action Menu select Menus and pick any content menu except the All content default
  2. Select an item shown as page types or create a new one by dragging the Page type button into the menu area
  3. Under Item properties, select a Listing type from the drop-down list on the right.  Further options will be displayed depending on the type.

Item Properties

The three listing types are:

  1. Simple listing - The pages are listed alphabetically by title. If there are many pages, they can be grouped automatically by first letter. See Menu list threshold under
  2. Hierarchy - The pages are listed hierarchically according to the parent field you select. For example, each Positions page has a Reports to field: creating a hierarchical listing on the Reports to field will present the position pages as an organizational structure. Hierarchical listings are only available for page types that have a hierarchical custom field. See Custom properties
  3. Classification listing - The pages are listed under one or more levels of sub-heading created from the properties of the pages.
    • If the classification field is a date, you can group the listed pages by day, week, month, quarter, or year. Note that:
      • Quarter and year are based on your corporate year: for example, if your corporate year starts in April, Q1 means April-May-June. See .
      • Week uses the ISO 8601 definition: week 1 is the week containing the first Thursday of the new year.
      • First group and Last group are optional. Use these if you want single groupings for historic or future items. For example, the listing might be of pages grouped by an expiry date property, and your interest is the items coming up in the next few months. You could use First Group: –1 month to include everything more than a month old, and Last group: +3 months to include everything more than three months into the future.
    • The group specifications take the form Label: number unit(s)
      • Label: is optional. If omitted, the system uses Before [date] and On or after [date].
      • number is the number of units (number of periods) to offset, positive or negative.
      • unit, if provided, is day, week, month, quarter, or year. If omitted, the Group by value is used.
    • If the classification field is a number, you can group the listed pages by number range. Enter a space-delimited series of numbers to be used as the minimums for your listing groups. For example, if you enter “1,000 10,000 100,000 1,000,000 the listing groups will be
      • Less than 1,000
      • 1,000 - 100,000
      • 100,000 - 1,000,000
      • 1,000,000+
    • A group heading is displayed only if there are items to list under that heading. For listing purposes, empty numeric fields are treated as zero.
