Hi Craig

Thanks for posting!

You can definitely have two different viewers on the same page. Even if they are coming from the same section. I am curious about one thing though. When you say " allow the user to select", do you mean there will only actually be one list on the page at a time and then perhaps a link that lets the user click back and forth on how it's sorted? Or do you just want to have both lists displayed on the page at the same time?

Let me know :).

Hey Ross -

Thanks! My thought was that it would default to one view when you loaded the page (perhaps view by date) and then in an interior nav option you would have "view by date" and "view by location" links allowing the user to click back and forth with one list on the page at a time.

That said, I don't have strong feelings either way, if they were both on the page and the interior nav bookmarked between them that could work too.

Hi Craig,

There's a couple of ways to do this. The simplest is just to have two pages classesByDate.php and classesBylocation.php that identical just just have a different orderBy option so they sort differently.

Another way is to add some code as described in this post:

Hope that helps!

Hey Dave -

That is perfect! - I like the order by code on the page you referenced. That is just what I want.

I love CMSB! As a developer it is a godsend.
