When I add field Article Title (Text) to Search Form of Band List & Search Type, then a textbox is added. Im trying to create a list, not a search functionality. When I go to List tab and click on the "<" icon for Article Title (Text) from the available fields list, then nothing happens. The field does not get added in the Construction for List View. When I drag and drop it to the construction for list view, then it is temporary added, but removed again after I have clicked save button.
What I'm trying to do is creating a list of bands, not a search form for bands.
Under Search Form for Bands List & Search Type, I have two fields: - CCK (Select - Dynamic). Live value = band. - Article Title (Text)
Under List I have no fields, and the text "# You can choose to use a List Template by picking one from Template Tab or to leave this view empty." appears. Adding the Article Title (Text) field here doesn't work quite well.I am using Joomla 3.2.1 and Seblod 3.2.2 on xampp.
i didn't read you whole problem, but your images seem to be 404 btw ;) "no positions available" in LIST tab means that you have a BLOG layout -> here you have to put your fields into ITEM view. in a TABLE layout on the other hand, you have not ITEM but only a LIST view.
if you just want to create (quote) "a list of bands, not a search" you have to understand that (as trip already told you) seblod creates all kind of LISTS (blog and tables) by first searching your database with the options you setup in the "search" tab and than DISPLAYS it via LIST (for table views) or ITEM (for blog views).
Hello, I understand the different parts of display... upon creating the list and search type I could choose: None | Blog | Layout. I choose Blog.
It was my understanding (even with custom content type created), I could display my content type in blog layout with only intro format like Joomla article, and upon clicking on title, go to the full content type entry. But I was wrong, because it just shows the full entry. And also for me there is no list view to add fields into.
So, if I have to use a table format, how do I change from blog to table? I see no options to change my list & search type???
First of all: The only field that you need to show your items in a list (independend which layout blog,...) is the cck-field pointed to the correct content type. You have to choose this content type in the live value of this cck field. With this field ALL articles from this content type should be displayed.
If you only want to show specific articles of this content type you have to add another field which includes the limitations (f.e. a dropdown). This is the FILTER to show only items which have a specific value.
If you dont want to add the search form to your site, you have to set a live value (f.e. band) for this field to make the filter working. You also have to set "search on the first load" to the search type.
If you go to the search page only articles which fit the value "band" should be displayed in this case.
I can suggest you the following: Can you give me an temporary account to your site with access to edit SEBLOD in the Backend? I will see what I can do. After that you can remove my account. Send my userdata please to firstname.lastname@example.org.
