Multiple page selections in custom block

Permalink
Hi, is there or has anyone had any luck building a custom block whereby multiple page selections can be made? I can currently do this for a single page selector but not multiple, like add or delete in the add/edit forms.

I think this addon would be really useful.

Can you explain this more clearly please.

OK,

A block that can output the following:

Link to page 1
Link to page 2
Link to page 3
etc ...

In the block a page selector attribute. So to add a new link there would be a page selector attribute or 'Add page'. Each time a new page is to be selected a new page selector (Add page) is dynamically added to the edit/add form. I've seen a multiple page selector on the forum, was wondering if that could be implemented into a custom block?

Does this make any more sense?

An obvious addon to try is manual nav

You could also easily do this with a regular content block, just build a list and select pages to link to.

That is just the add on i was looking for thanks! I'm going to see how that is coded now.

I am trying to steer clear of users adding content blocks for this kind of data as I would like to attach a template to the block so that each link is styled correctly.

I can't seem to install the Manual Nav ad on you recommended. I've unzipped the file into the packages folder but nothing is showing up to install within the concrete5 add functionality area? I've contacted Jordan about this but heard nothing back as yet. Just for the record I'm currently using version 5.6.1.2.
