Content categories or containers

Firstly! I’m loving using Squidex. Great work.

Wondering if the contents section could allow custom grouping based on a category or container. The category would allow you to group content of schemas.

This would help editors to group and find content that belongs together.

For example:
Content:
Bake a cake process (container/category)
-----> process overview (bakeCake schema)
-----> preparation (prep schema)
-----> ingredients (ingredient schema)

Make donuts process (container/category)
-----> process overview (donutprocess schema)
-----> preparation (prep schema)
-----> ingredients (ingredient schema)

Looking at this I can see I could use tags, but not all editors will apply these properly. In the above example there could be thousands of “ingredient” content that editors would find it hard to locate quickly. The categories could act as anchor to point to quickly get a set of content. ie give me the donuts process.

Thanks for your time keep up the great work!

There is nothing like that yet. But what you could do is this:

  • Create a special schema with your content groups.
  • Create a reference field to all your other schemas and make this field required. Then the editor must apply this property.
  • Use the query editor to search for content items by a special category (e.g. Cakes) and save this query to your favorites.
