'Transportable' list of <article>s

Hi, I’m building a website for an academic institution (a social sciences lab), and I’m looking for some guidance regarding a particular problem that I am not sure how best to address with Kirby.

On the site, there is a section resembling a blog (the ‘Research’ section), where the client will publish in-depth summaries of each of their projects (each a subpage of ‘Research’). Each project summary contains a list of links (each inside an ) to posts from external publishers where the project is featured. This by itself is straight-forward, but the problem that I’m struggling to solve is that the client needs a section of the site (a sibling of the ‘Research’ section, titled ‘Publications’) that lists every one of those links / elements in a sortable / filterable / searchable list. I’m not quite able to conceptualize the best way to collect these ’s so that I can call them up and filter them as needed.

The best solution I’ve been able to conceive of is to create a subpage under ‘Publications’ for each , even though there’s no need for an actual page. Is this reasonable? Is there a better, or at least ‘cleaner’ way to do what I need in Kirby?

Unfortunately, you don’t tell us how you are storing these links. But assuming you are using a structure field, then you can fetch all the structure fields of all the research subpages into a new structure, then search, sort or filter them. Or you convert these structure items into virtual pages of the publications page.

Thanks so much for the quick response, Sonja! I’ll test this and report back :slight_smile:
