Pages: Can't have two folders (in different locations) with the same name???


Recommended Posts

I'm currently working on a pretty large-scale archival project and am using Pages and custom wrappers/templates to pull it off. But a big requirement is to be able to have folders with the same name placed in different areas of the folder hierarchy, and bizarrely it seems as if I can't do that?

For example, I have a 'games' folder here:

/pages/special/v1/games/

And I have just tried to create another 'games' folder here:

/pages/special/v2/games/

But the system won't let me.

Could contain: Text, Computer Hardware, Electronics, Hardware, Monitor, Screen

There's no reason for this error to appear unless I'm trying to make two 'games' folders in the same location, but I'm clearly not doing that. Please fix this in V5.

There is a reason, actually. The categories can be freely moved inside the database. Pages is not aware about your strict structure. What should happen if you decide move the folder /pages/special/v1/games/ to /pages/special/v2/? There is already a folder with this name...

It should offer an error and say the folder cannot be moved as there exists a folder with the same name already.

I don't believe the Pages app should be working to a 'flat' structure if it's going to offer folder features. Just feels half-baked, and doesn't make any sense. Maybe there should be a setting in the AdminCP that turns that off.
