I often encounter pages that are nothing more than nodes to group (sub-)pages with. And I hate filling such pages with some placeholder blah blah, just to fill the empty page. Would it be possible to generate an automated summary/overview of all sub-pages?
I could imagine an custom html module that outputs the full article of just the title and first paragraph, depending on a parameter it is passed. And the parent page displaying all modules of it's children together.
News/blog modules do something similar to this, but they just pull data out of the same database and it only works for it's own items.
And of cource I could manually design the parent page by just adding the existing modules of the children to the parent page. But this would require updating the parent page every time a child page is changed, moved, removed, or added.
I'm interested in a module that creates it's own summary of all child pages, no matter what kind of content they contain.
Does something like this exist? could it be done?
