I am curious if there is a way to loop through the Data Definitions you have created, from a Velocity template.
However, I understand this is a weird way to do it, and I already have a different working method, but I would love to change it.

Any help is appreciated.

    This is not currently possible using native functionality, which is only for home area assets (ie the locator tool or index blocks).

    That being said, you could perhaps use Web Services to build and serve an XML file that can be consumed by Cascade as an XML Feed Block. You would then be able to loop over the contents of this block using Velocity.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
