One of the annoyances of the NewsPublisher extra is that if you want users to be able to set the new Resource’s parent, they have to enter the ID of the parent, which they often don’t know. In the Manager, they can select the parent in the tree, but in NewsPublisher there’s no tree to select from, and giving the users a printed list of the possible parents and their IDs is a pretty ugly solution.
Adding a drop-down list would be a nice feature for NewsPublisher, but almost everyone would want some algorithm to set the possible parents, and the algorithms would be different. Someday, NewsPublisher may have this feature, but in the meantime, there is a way to do the same thing with a Resource List TV and a Plugin. Learn More
