Hey hey. I haven’t posted in a while. I have been really busy doing some of the Codecademy stuff. And I have been learning a lot about Rules and some of the more granular ways to choose content on my site.
That brings me to today’s topic. I have One content type called research. I need to be able to use this content type on more than one node add/edit form for that one content type. So, I have one variant on the Node Add/Edit page in Page Manager. I thought that it might best to setup two variants at first then use some selection rules to choose based on the URL.
I looked at a few different ways to do this and the one that I have settled on is this. I have one variant. I need to have one Panel on the page that is different from the other. So, I use a visibility rule for one panel and a different one for the other. Then, I placed both of those Panels on the page. Since it is a Node ADD/Edit variant, I have to work in the URL, node/add/research. so the rule for one panel is node/add/research/news and the other is node/add/research/courts. I created a menu that reflects these URLs and now I can get to the correct version of the one variant from URL selection rules on two different panel panes.
