Page Index Element

The Page Index Element is essentially a saved search that displays results as a set of links to pages that meet search criteria defined within the Element. CommonSpot dynamically displays Page Index Element results; that is,Page Index links are automatically updated with new pages that meet the Element search criteria.

The Page Index Elements is commonly used to dynamically render a link list of pages as shown below.

For example, use the Page Index Element to display recent news stories authored within the past two days, a list of press releases about a specific product, or a "what’s new" listing of recently modified pages.

Which pages are returned and how they display are configuration options that you can easily set when defining a Page Index Element.

The News section on the home page of the CommonSpot demo site shown above is a page index that sorts using the following criteria:
