Nested Parsys in AEM 6.3

Avatar

Level 2

Hi,

I wanted to create a nested parsys system, which would allow me to create a parsys inside a parsys. I have been trying to do it like this:

    

<div data-sly-resource="${'main-par' @ resourceType='wcm/foundation/components/parsys'}">

     <div data-sly-resource="${'./parsys-container' @ resourceType='wcm/foundation/components/parsys'}"></div>

</div>

But this approach is not working. Can anyone please tell me how to do this correctly.

Another way of achieving this is, you can create a component with parsys inside it and drag and drop that component into a parent parsys (requires some css changes in this case).

NOTE: However, using nested paragraph system might effect the performance of the page which is stated in the below mentioned link:

Typically a parsys is placed within another component such as a grid. This gives you ability to drop a component within a component:

See this article to give you an idea of how to add a parsys within a component.
