Changing the order of fields in one Tab of Page Properties for a specific template


Level 5


Is there a way to change the order of Page Properties for a specific Template. I would need the Tags to appear first followed by the Page Title, SEO Page Title and so on?

Hi @anasustic,

I think you can achieve this overlaying dialog(to the template where you want to change) based on Sling Resource Merger and re-arrange fields however you want.


Below is a page component which doesn't have any dialog, I would check resourceType and overlay it to page component.

Hi @SantoshSai 

Thanks for your reply.

I am not sure how to use your suggestion for rearranging fields in a template. The template inherits from what I can see the cg:Page properties and I am trying to find out how to rearrange fields for it. From  what I can see it uses the page properties from here /mnt/overlay/wcm/core/content/sites/properties.html and I would like to rearrange fields in one tab from page properties but only for a page that uses this specific template. Would that be possible and how?


Under page I can see the following structure







It is the fields in this basic tab that I would need to rearrange for this template.

You should rearrange under cq:dialog node level, if you don't see cq:dialog node under your page/template code level, then you can copy the cq:dialog node from core components and then rearrange the fields the way you want.
