Hello everyone,

last year we created an catalogue app for our customer. Now we want to add a catalogue issue of the current year without removing the old one. My perspective was, that DPS AEM is capable of handling multiple issues, but i cannot find any information or tutorial how to organize the content in order to achieve this. I tried adding a new product on the "Products & subscriptions" page (don't know if that is the correct title in english, since we use in it german), but when we tested this approach in the preflight app, there was no other issue appearing / accessible.

As far i've seen, the collection of the current catalogue is defined as being top level content, but i cannot find a way to change this.

All tutorials provided by DPS 2015 / AEM focus on basic apps with a single product content, so i'm not even sure, if this feature is exiting in DPS 2015 / AEM.

Can anyone help?

Thank you very much in advance,

Carsten

I have a similar question. I have a second issue of a magazine that I'm about to publish, the first we used the whole app as the magazine so in the top level content you had all the articles (not contained in a collection). The names of each of the articles would show up in the app menu. Now I have created a "home" collection as the top level and have two collections within containing the two issues.

My question is why when you click through the collections do the article names not show up in the app menu, is there a way to fix this navigation so that when you go into a collection the articles will show up in the menu? Or even the sub collections?
