Thanks Andrew. Both you and Justin have been very helpful.

David,

If you want to move a page, or a whole section of a site to be subordinate to another area of the web site, with the Dependency Manager enabled (and site scanned to convert all the links to DM tags), then yes, you can use the file or folder move tool in Content>Pages to change the location of a page (or folder). All the links that point to those pages will be automatically updated and the affected pages republished so that there are no broken links. Please feel free to contact Jessica (your Implementation Manager) directly to discuss your options. The Dependency Manager is part of your implementation and is typically turned on near the completion of this process.

Regards,

Andrew Soderberg

Thanks again Justin. Being new to OUC I didn't think about that feature being able to help us. I'm use to going to a site in other CMS' and then selecting from a list in the properties to change the Parent.

Yes, I'll read more about it on the support site. However, if any of the OU Support Staff have any thoughts or suggestions, I would love to hear them.
Comment by Justin Gatewood on July 19, 2012 at 11:18am

The built-in OU Campus Dependency Manager should be able to handle this task for you as you move the site to the new location (modify links, paths in code, etc.)

That's a feature that can be turned on by an OU Campus Site Administrator for any sites they manage.

I would defer to any of the OU Support Staff as to the particulars of how Dependency Manager does that, or you could read up on that feature of OU Campus on the support site at: http://support.omniupdate.com/documentation/ox/interface/setup/site...

Thanks for your reply Justin. Maybe an example would help.

My employer is a medical/research school, so converging specialties and technologies happen frequently. As an example research conducted for HIV-Aids may be moved into a clinical trial administered by Internal Medicine through one of our clinics. Being able to change the parent location of the site that originally was located in a Research directory to a Medical directory and then moving it to Internal Medicine section is what we desire.

We know that other CMS' like WordPress and Cascade Server have this feature, although they may not be quite as elaborate as what we want.

I hope this helps.

There are also directory variables that you can use - so I would really need to know what you're doing when you want to be able to make this selection from a list, as well as where you want the resulting value of your selection to be stored/saved...

Comment by Justin Gatewood on July 19, 2012 at 10:57am

For example, there is a 'filechooser' property that can be used in a template on OUC that allows you to browse/select from live files/folders based on a starting point (directory/path) that you specify.

 

Don't know whether or not that would solve this for you, as I'm not sure as to the full context of your question.
