I have an idea. I'm not a programmer. Maybe You will write this module...

I think CMSMS need module to create links to related pages with displaying titles of related articles. Very similar is Simple Tagging module, but Simple Tagging create categories. There is need link straight to the article(page in CMS). My idea module should have attribute to define numbers of links. Display in list
  • ...

    However, i think there should be attribute do define range of pages whose title will be charged. Ex. from prages in menu menu between id 3-4, or 3.1-3.8.

    Maybe some module is exist, but i didnt found this?

    Please write,

yes, this is indeed a lack of cmsms. there are some more or less complicated scripts which are using the content_dump plugin to achieve this… check them out

Sounds like you could use the "Attach" module.

Sounds like something you could do with a custom menu template using the extra1 field and/or some smarty logic...

I dont think it was a good idea. Please imagine 100 subpages and trying relate by menu module only some of pages who should have the same words in content or title like in main article, ex. 'how to flying'. :-X

Im not a programmer, so I can only prompt as I see it myself. I do not understand the idea of creating command in php, smarty etc. :-[

I agree that this feature is missing.

This is a pretty standard feature in most CMS engines

It would simply add complexity to CMSMS to add all these bizarre work-around to achieve this.

Any ideas if there is something in the pipeline?

Right guys, I've found a module that does this.

Search for 'Attachments' in Module Manager. It's a great module, really easy to use (though could do with a bit of tidying up) and basically you can attach any file or URL to a content page.

At the moment I have configured mine so that all PDF datasheets are displayed in one tab, and Related Products are displayed in another tab. This is all using the Attachments module, so it's very versatile!

Still a shame this feature isn't natively encrusted into CMSMS, but yo.

Into yours solution there is one problem. This is static content. In Your way I can make the same results by create some Global block HTML, and attach in template/page... Related pages should been created by CMS after analyze words from db. Right? O0

However thanks 4 reply :)

I agree - my solution is still static content so is not the best.

But it is the only solution I can find. Hopefully it will help somebody searching for the same problem.

You should check out Attachments module, it is good (but I think its features should be built into CMSMS, we don't need another module for this)

Hi
Are someone working on this?
Such a module would really be useful. I have a client who is asking for just that thing.

Ive reached this post trying to learn about the same. It should be done through a tag included in the core. Probably it makes for a module that will crawl data base for pages whenever a new page is posted, or search module keys depending on which parameters get the tag. It should be something like:

{related}

With parameters like:

{related pages=10 keywords=3 keysize=6 searchin=title summary=1 sumlenght=150 icon=1}

pages: Number of related pages retrieved.
keywords: Number of keywords that must be shared to consider page related.
keysize: Minimum lenght in characters for a keyword to count.
searchin: Possible values:
.-title
.-1stparagraph
.-both: Will look into title and 1st paragraph.
.-all: Will look into all content, title and article.
summary: Show summary or not.
sumlength: Lenght of the summary in words or characters (maybe another param to make it selectable).
icon: Show each page icon or picture.

{related pages=10 keywords=3 searchkey=1 summary=1 sumlenght=150 icon=1}

searchkey parameter offer a different approach as it searches only on cms made simple search module keywords requested by users, keysize can be used with it, but not the searchin parameter.

I leave default values to the imagination of ppl reading this ^-^.

This is just an idea for a tag that would put a lot of possibilities in cms made simple. I know developers have enough with what they deal this is just my way to put my limited knowledge on good use.
