Items don’t have to be attached to a paragraph or a page, they may also be stored in an Item List.
Item lists function as a kind of repository for items created from a single item type. They are attached to a page via the Page Properties > Advanced tab, but their items can be published anywhere using the item publisher or query publisher apps.
As always, the item type must be enabled for this type of use – see the item types article for details.
To create an item list on a page:
- Open the page properties
- Switch to the advanced tab
- Click the Item lists button (Figure 1.1)
This opens the item lists interface – where you can create new lists:
- Click the Add list button
- Enter Name
- Select the item type
- Click OK
When the list has been created you can manage the items therein from the list view (Figure 1.2) – e.g. view, edit, delete or create new items of the chosen item type.
Please note, that in many cases editors find it much easier to work with page-items shown in list view.
