Using system-folders within navigation

I am new to cascade Server, but understand xml and xslt. I would like to use system-folders for the various sections of a site, but I don't know the correct way to set up the format block for a navigation structure that would include the system-folder name, but go to the index page within that folder when clicked. I hope I expressed this correctly.

    Firstly, welcome to the Cascade community!

    We actually have a sample XSLT Format that should be able to provide you with a good starting point. Specifically, links generated for Folders will go to the corresponding index page within that Folder.

    Note: there are instructions on how to set up the Index Block as well.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks Ryan,
    I had eventually noticed that there was an example that was using href="{path}/index", which will let me include the system-folder, but actually direct to the page under it named "index".

    Not a problem at all. I am glad to hear you found an example to help get you started.

    One thing to note, I would recommend generally using link as opposed to path when generating links, so you can be sure you are properly generating cross-Site links.

    I'm going to go ahead and close this discussion, please feel free to comment or reply to re-open if you have any additional questions.

    Have a great day!
