I have just downloaded the latest EE from Ellis Lab today. I am trying to create various child pages, each with a different template. Is this possible? I keep getting the following message:

"An Error Was Encountered You are not authorized to access this page"

If this message doesnt occur, the parent template is inherited.

  • Hi Yuri, What I was trying to get across was that If I were to create a child page of my Index page, the child page is inheriting the template of the index page. The question I'd like answered, Is this a mistake on my end with the set up or is this how the system works generically.? I should mention that I am using the add-on 'Structure' to create child pages

ExpressionEngine relationships between pages / entries in the core are linear, there is no such thing as a child page.

If you want to have nested URLs, have a look at third-party add-ons, such as Structure.

You may also achieve nested URLs with built-in Pages module, but it's not as visual as Structure

  • Can I also add Navee & Taxonomy to the mix. I've used all three but always seem to go back to Structure. Feb 6, 2015 at 10:48
