After a finally returning to an extensive recode of my first commercial Craft based site, I have successfully implemented several new (to me) features from the latest builds. One thing I am making extensive use of is entry types.
To make it easy to update my layouts, I have a section called "Widgets". Each widget entry simply points to a template file via an assets select. Presently I have three kinds of widgets: a side bar widget (Which is more compact as the name would suggest), a primary (much larger widget), and a full page widget. To keep things organized, I am sorting this based on three entry types.
So each page of my site (ex: site.com/blog) is part of a structure, which inside the structure is a Matrix field. This allows me to insert inline text, images, and the previously mentioned widgets via a related entry, though there is one major problem... I cannot seem to limit the Widget block in the Matrix field based on entry types.
My workaround I suppose would be to have 3 separate sections: one for each type of Widget, but that solution is far from elegant. SO, any ideas, guys? Here's to hoping that this would be a fairly minor update that could make it out in an upcoming release... Thanks in advance guys!
