Simplest way to create a nested list?

Hi,

On reviewing the ‘Data’ and ‘Design’ panels, I’d like to create a data-based nested list in the sidebar of my site, such as:

  • Item 1
    • Subitem A
    • Subitem B
  • Item 2
    • Subitem C

and so on. I think I can figure out how to use workflows to have these generate different listings in the site content area; I’m just not sure what the simplest way to do nesting would be (repeating lists with child repeating lists seems complex, if even possible?)

Thanks for any help with this. ~nb

yes, your thinking is correct, and here is a good example made by @raymond and hosted by AirDev

Thanks Levon!

Would the nested groups approach also be necessary for something frequently updated like comments? As long as they’re cached on the backend it could be a good way to go.

if you want to have comments and reply within each comment, then nested groups would be the way to go.
here is a screenshot of how we implemented it for one of the client apps

Thanks,
Levon.
