In a Projector's 'Summary' View I show only the 'Title' with the link capability to get to the 'Details' display.

Clicking the 'Title' opens the 'Summary' page on a separate page!

? would it be possible to  show the 'Summary' screen on the same page as the 'details' e.g. in a different 'Zone'. ?
like a "Master/Detail" concept? learning all the goodies in Orchard - I'm almost sure that something like this is in-built !?!

Thanks for your time and ideas

PS: I played with below placement.info without success:
<Match ContentType="Parcours">
        <Match DisplayType="Detail">
            <Place Parts_Common_Body="Content:before"
                   Parts_Tags_ShowTags="Nowhere"
                   Parts_Common_Metadata="-"
                   Parts_BingMap="Content:before"
                  
                    Fields_MediaPicker-Image="-"/>
        </Match>
        <Match DisplayType="Summary">
            <Place Parts_Tags_ShowTags="Nowhere"
                   Parts_Common_Metadata_Summary="Nowhere"
                    Parts_BingMap="Nowhere"
                   
                    />
        </Match>
    </Match>

You can show both shapes in different local zones. But I'm suspecting you mean top-level zones?

well will get into your explanations of zones first ... orchard documentation!

what I like is:
show in TripleFirst the 'Summary' (titles only with 'link' capability defined) and on SAME page in TripleSecond the appropriate 'Details' when clicking the title!

thanks for the hint,ed

Merci Bertrand,

after reading below (very good and clear articles) about the subject - and an orchard thread mentioning that
in the future I can even move shapes arbitrarily into top-level zones by using 'Placement.info'. In addition
there is obviously also a path using the Module Mechanics/PaperClip/Origami !

I start to ask myself what is the 'right' way to go?

As mentioned above I like to achieve  a '''Master/Detail''' feeling by:
showing e.g. in TripleFirst the 'Summary' (titles only with 'link' capability defined) and on SAME page in TripleSecond
the appropriate 'Details' when clicking the title!

Can anyone help and direct me into - considering the Orchard future - open solution!

Thanks for your time and advise, ed
