I recently installed Radiant and started playing around with it a bit.
Since I only know html/css I’ve been looking at various CMS systems (the
only other one to really catch my eye was Modx) to figure out if these
could give me easy access to more dynamic features.
I really enjoy how simple the admin interface of Radiant is relative to
all the other CMS systems - deceptively simple even, when considering
the underlying flexibility.
I employ a rather simple (in my mind) 2 level tab-based navigation bar
on many of my websites (example: www.ambitiouslemon.com note: not IE
compatible). I was hoping Radiant could code this in a snippet that I
could call from my layout. But one of the odd things I have noticed
about Radiant is that it has all pages as children of the home page, and
this screws up the built in <r: navigation> tag’s ability to create the
tab bar as I had planned. I have some other problems, but I suspect
thats just because I don’t understand the tagging language well enough -
but the big issue is that I can’t set up my actual page hierarchy in a
way that would be properly reflected by this navigation system.
Is there a conceptual reason for not allowing pages as siblings to home
rather than children? Am I missing something here?
