I have an Asset Factory that creates Pages. Is there a way for that same Asset Factory to simultaneously generate a Block (XHTML) for me? Thanks.

    Hi Steven,

    The only way to generate multiple assets from a single Asset Factory would be to:

    • Create a Folder that contains both a base page and base XHTML block
    • Create a Folder Asset Factory that uses the new folder as the base asset

    When the user creates the new "folder", it will contain the base page and block. The only downside here is the user would need to edit the page and block after the folder is created.

    That being said, a possible solution could be to create an Asset Factory plugin and use the doPluginActionPost method to essentially hook into the page creation and generate a new block.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!
