Well the Repeat Region repeats the element that is marked as repeat region adding an id to it. Example:
<div id="repeat1">Result1</div>
<div id="repeat2">Result2</div>
<div id="repeat3">Result3</div>
<div id="repeat4">Result4</div>

The Repeat children element can be used in a ul > li, ol >li or ANY Parent container > Children container structure. Example:
<ul id=repeat1">
  • Result1
  • Result2
  • Result3
  • [/list]

    It depends on the situation. As i expained - if you have an element that is not in a parent-child structure, you use the repeat region.
    If you want to repeat a child element in a parent-child structure you can apply the Repeat Children on the Parent element.

    I have this code:
    <ul id="images">
    <li class="revealFX revealFX1" data-delay="100ms"><img src="../img/self-portrait.jpg" width="580" height="383" alt="Grass Blades" />
    <p class="blogtext">Self-portrait</p>
    <li class="revealFX revealFX1" data-delay="100ms"><img src="../img/Landscape.jpg" width="580" height="432" alt="Stones" />
    <p class="blogtext">Landscape</p>
    <li class="revealFX revealFX1" data-delay="100ms"><img src="../img/Flower.jpg" width="580" height="576" alt="Sea Mist" />
    <p class="blogtext">Flower</p>
    <li class="revealFX revealFX1" data-delay="100ms"><img src="../img/billboard.jpg" width="580" height="778" alt="Pier" />
    <p class="blogtext">Billboard </p>

    Where would I select the element to assign a repeat region? I have tried the UL, the LI and no matter what element I select, the only repeat region that gets created is a separate DIV.

    OK I selected the UL and inserted repeat children of the UL. That worked. I think going forward, the tutorials should include accessing and configuring a SQL database since much work is still done with SQL.

    Hello Joe,
    What exactly do you mean by: "the tutorials should include accessing and configuring a SQL database since much work is still done with SQL"? Which part of using DMXzone Database Connector is done with SQL and not through the UI of the extension?
