Lock position in flexible content

  • Hi,

    I purchased the Flexible Content add-on. Very happy with it. Excellent product.

    I’m making a content creating tool for my client. The client can add blocks of text, tables, charts, etc all with the flexible content add-on.

    Now, I’d like to also add a text block for an introduction to a page. It could be nice when I can lock the position of this content intro, i.e. disable the reordering of its position. I want it in first position all the time?

    Do you think this is possible? Useful?

  • Hi @Excelmans Graphics

    If you always want a text block before any other flex content could you not just create a separate textarea/WYSIWYG and place it before your flex content (on the front end – you could always place it before the flex field in admin too to ensure it makes more sense to your client)? That way you always know it’s going to appear before any content your client adds.

    Not sure I can see the benefit to be able to lock content position for this use case – I guess it might be useful in cases where a certain content type needs to appear at a particular point in a loop e.g. every fifth item) but I think that’s possibly too edge to be worth baking in. Elliot might have other ideas!

  • Thanks for the tip.

    This works fine, visually, when there are no gray metaboxes.
