Do Not Link to a Child's Parent Page in a List

Listing the children of a page's parent can create a loop.

Published October 13, 2014

The Issue

In a list component (e.g. List Builder), it is easy to simply list the child pages of a specific page. But if the specified page is the PARENT of the page on which the list is placed, and the parent page has a similar list of its own child pages, this will create a neverending loop. In effect, the lists auto-list each other, and the UBCMS auto-lists itself continually.

Workaround

Avoid auto-listing the content of the page's parent in a list component.
