What do you mean by "actual folder"? The code you posted is valid, as far as I can see.

MSM - he wants "actualfolder" to be the folder that article is currently in, not a folder called actualfolder. This way whatever folder you're in, an automatic index of that folder is created.

It can be done semi-automatic with keywords and/or different templates for each folder. I've used different templates on one site describing different series of books. Once you have made the templates (and they are identical apart from the article loop) it is fairly easy to use. But of course you have to remember to change templates when appropriate.

As far as I remember, others from this forum have come to the same conclusion.

That's why folder ". " is a much requested feature. ( "." points to the current directory in most filesystems)

Ah. He wants "." as a conditional. I concur. That would be quite useful.

yes it's correct I am look for a "." to get all article in the actual folder. But as i understand it's not possible up to now ?

1: You are German

2: Actual is a "false-friend" (or false-synonym) or "Aktuell".

3: Aktuell: current

4. actual: eigentlich

Ah, les faux amis.

In any case, the actual beta 2, also known as CityDesk 2.0.3, has the conditional (thisFolder) for this purpose.

Bug: (thisFolder) works well in forEach loops but does NOT yet work in nextLink and previousLink, due to an unfortunate error which will be corrected in the NEXT beta, beta 3.
