Repeaters, sorting and populating image layouts...
Am using repeaters for a client to populate a project 'galleries'. There are four image "layouts"... 1up. 2up. 3up and 2up 3/4. And different number of images per project, displayed in a single page. So repeaters should be good option.
If I separate each layout type then add as it's own repeater, you can only sort WITHIN the repeater. So the order can only be the order I add into template... 1up 1up 1up 2up 2up 3up 3up etc. Else, if you could drag and drop sort the reapting regions this would work perfectly!
If I add all 4 layouts into one repeater and allow client to populate the layouts they need then add more, you end up with a very long page of empty fields for the positions they don't want. (also have a bug with this option will post separately).
Am I going about this the wrong way?
Is there a way to add a selector in CMS to select the type (layout) of repeating region you want to add AND hidefields from template in CMS unless selected from drop down?
Does the Gallery App add more control with layouts that we could populate and add slug in page to view?
