Something strange about Basic Page?

Something strange about Basic Page? was created by davidmcmurrey
My students are creating basic pages but I can get a view and block to auto-list them on the front page. I can do this with Articles, for example. Is there some secret I don't know about? -- David

Hi David,

To list an article in frontpage, "Promoted to front page" needs to be checked:



Hopes this helps

Kind regards,
Valentín

Hi David

There's no practical reason why Basic pages are different than Articles. Drupal treats them exactly the same.

Can you talk me through your set up? Do you actually have multiple basic pages available to show in the view?

I create a View called Our Basic Pages and specify it is to display all basic pages in a block on the front page.

You know, I think I'll just work around this problem and create specific content types that I know I can use with view and a block. Thanks, Steve

I appreciate the offer, Steve. I'm inclined to give up on it. But I could send you e 4-minute camtasia video? Would that work?

Sorry David! Ken posted in the same thread as you accidentally. I should have split it for him to a new topic. I'll do that in the future.

Kind regards,
Nick
