Nested Articles

To create nested sets, append the {articles} tag of the nested set with an extra name or id, for example -others.

The example below will show one article per category from the parent category "Animals" (so one article from the "Dogs" subcategory, one article from the "Cats" subcategory, and so on). And for each of those articles, it will show a set of articles for the other animals contained in the respective category.

Don't forget to close each articles set with a closing tag using the same extra id (in this example: {/articles-others}). If you don't close every set, you will get unwanted results.

Custom Fields Pro only

To place the value of a custom field from the current article, simply use:

{article}[name-of-the-field]{/article}

To place the value of a custom field from a different article, just place the title, alias or ID of that article in the {article} tag:

{article Some Other Article}[name-of-the-field]{/article}

You can also output the label of the custom field.
