Here’s a feature of Site Manager that we’d not come across until now, and which isn’t particularly intuitive which is why I’m blogging about it.
We simply needed a way for Site Manager to output the URL of the current section. We knew about the section details navigation object but couldn’t work out how to tell it to use the current section rather than specifying a specific section.
The tooltip for the Section option says:
If the section method is chosen above, then the item will display the details of the section specified by ID here. If the ID is set to ZERO, the current section will be used for generating output.
Which is fine but we couldn’t work out how to set the ID to ‘ZERO’. We emailed T4 client support who, as usual, were very helpful and pointed us to this announcement on the T4 Extranet: Output the URI of the current page.
It turns out what this means is simply don’t select a section.
