I'm looking at the information pages setup in admin/configuration/templates/information pages.

Can someone explain what the "parent page" setting is used for and what it means.

--or how to use it effectively, or why I would want to use it. :confused:

EDIT::
Ok, I'm seeing it as a sort of drill down link or a subcategory information page when set to be active in the information box.

Are there any other hidden powers this setting can be used for? - let me know its full potential!

I am afraid that is the limit of its hidden powers ... a bit like articles you can have sub-articles.

Regards.

Its all good, I was testing it out at first and couldn't see what affect it had.

Child page with a parent must be set to active in the information box and it is only visible after the parent is clicked.

I didn't see that at first- my test parent and child pages only had one line of sample text. after seeing the parent link, and clicking it, the newly visible child page link was there, i just hadn't seen it as the box was all the off the screen when the info page loaded.

I can see an option to filter for customer groups in there as a nice feature.

Thanks!
