How to break the children display macro into two columns?

I'm using the children display macro to show a list of pages under a certain page, but the list is too long and I'd like to break it into two columns to make it more readable and make the layout of the page nicer. 

Is this possible at all with children display macro? If not, what tool would you recommend? 

 

Cheers!

Hi Alireza,

The native Children Display macro is not able to be displayed in more than one column. This was requested as a feature in the past but has been rejected.

You could try manually inserting the links to child pages, or see if you download the Source Editor add-on, you may be able to directly alter the formatting.

Kind Regards,
Shannon

Shame, would have been a very useful feature

hello,

 

A workaround would be to display the first n/2 children in a first "children macro", then on a second one to have them displayed in a reverse sort.

 

Macro #1 :

Number of Children : n/2

- Sort Children By : title

- reverse sort : false

 

Macro #2 :

Number of Children : n/2

- Sort Children By : title

- reverse sort : true
