The Page Picker+ block lets you create custom, nested lists of pages by letting you handpick them from the sitemap and order them in the order you want. This is great for all kinds of purposes; from creating custom navigation menus to thumbnail grids.
The Page Picker+ block is a greate solution for scenario's where the Autonav block and Pagelist block don't offer you enough flexibility, because you decide which pages show up in the list and in what order.
The Page Picker+ offers the same options as the Page Picker block plus the following features:
Example of the types of content you can create with the Page Picker+ block:
The Page Picker+ block ships with a load of templates including all the templates from the Autonav block and the Pagelist block:
The Page Picker+ offers you the following configurable options:
The Page Picker Controller can produce a nested list of pages as well as a flat array of pages.
NOTICE #1 : Please note that not all the options are used in every template. The default template uses all the options but for some templates certain options are not used because this doesn't make sense, like a thumbnail or page description in a navigation template. But of course you are entirely free to create what ever template you want.
NOTICE #2 : You can use the templates from Concrete's Autonav block and Pagelist block for this block because the Page Picker+ is fully compatible with these templates, meaning all the variables used in these templates are set by the Page Picker+ block. This doesn't mean that the Page Picker+ has exactly the same options as the Autonav block and the Pagelist block. The Pagelist block, for example, has the option to provide a text to display when there are no pages to show. This doesn't make sense for the Page Picker+ so this option is not available.
