Alternates sharing model data

Topics: Customizing Orchard
May 5, 2013 at 8:31 PM
Hello, I've integrated 2 alternates that are used in my search results on my customContentType. Problem I'm having is that if I get a count of 1, I want my customContentType's fields to behave one way and count > 1 to behave another.
So I can get the count in my contentType alternate, but I can't access or change the fields from there, so I created the 2nd alternate on one of the fields, and I can't get the count from there but I can affect it's display.
Am I going about this the right way by trying to access other shape's models data through the alternates? Or is there a better way?

Hey all,

managed to figure out that I was needing to go to the list that displayed my content. I created an alternate to that list, then displayed my content and it's items like so....


The interesting part was that even though the list only displayed up to n'th node, since you can trace into that node, you can go deeper.


Working good!
