If users click on the text elements in the side menu, they’re directed to that page. The information on the pages are different for each page, but the side menu is the same for all pages. I’ve used a reusable element for the side menu.
The user creates a new thing (let’s call it a chair) and is automatically sent to “Name’s page”. There, chair title and rest of data is displayed correctly.
Content of Name’s page: chair
Main group content: chair
subgroup content: chair / data source: current page chair
Data that is sent from initial creation: result of step 1, create a new chair
Initial content of title etc. in name’s page: current page chair’s title
It also works fine if user goes to a page with a list of his/hers chairs in a repeating group and then clicks on a particular chair, and is redirected to the “Name & Description” page. The data populates correctly.
However, when user clicks the link “1 Name & Description” in the side menu, the data clears. Execution-wise, the user is sent to Name’s page again, but the data is not fetched/presented correctly.
workflow: go to page. data to send: current user’s chair
(with this one I anticipate there’s a mismatch of what’s sent and what is expected)
I tried to change from element text to element link, “2 Name & Description” to see if that changed anything. I anticipated it wouldn’t. I was correct.
data to send: current user’s chair
_(same problem as in case 1)
So I tried to put the “3 Name & Description” outside of the side menu. That worked.
So. How do you send data from a reusable element to a page? (And yes, I reviewed the “send data to pages” course but it “only” shows how to send from a repeating group to a page)
