Parent, default,

Hello,

I’m trying to build my site.yml fully from scratch. I would like achieve something like your Kirby Starterkit have – the pages fields, which show particular pages from whole site. I am trying to use:

List_of_some_subpages:
    label: Pages
    type: pages
    parent: site.page("pages")

And I suppose that it will connect this “List_of_some_subpages” field with particular place in files structure (content/1_pages) so the content of this folder will be always shown on the panel site page, but there is always “no pages selected yet”.

There are another properties, like “default”, so it’s possible that I understand it bad, completely. But It seems to work in your Starterkit.

Thank you so much!

Hey and welcome to our forum :slightly_smiling_face:

Could you please post the full blueprint here, because it looks as if you have created a field instead of a section.

Sure!

Ah, ok, you have defined fields here. A field doesn’t have a parent but needs a query, but I think you want a section here. With a pages field, you select pages and the selected pages are stored in site.txt.

The site.yml blueprint of the Starterkit doesn’t have any fields, only sections that list different types of pages.

Thank you so much for your reply, I will try it in next days and i will let you know!

Hi, it was exactly the problem. I didn’t understand differences between fields and sections well. Your link helps me a lot :slight_smile: In general, your documentation is pretty good!

Thank you so much for your support!
