Hi,
Yes it is ;) You will have to use the upcoming module to perform that. Here are some screenshots:

This upcoming module will allow you to realise complex magazine display inside an item view thanks to a new field type which will allow you to load a module instance inside an item:

The result is here, this is an items view which have the behavior of a multi-type & multicategory view (without modifying anything in FLEXIcontent's core). All the blue headers are content types coming from multiple categories:

I'm sure it will meet your custumer's requirements.
But you will have to be a little patient as I didn't finish the default generic templates for the module.

Cheers,

That looks great!

Do we know how long it will be before it will go live?
[Our site will be going live within the next 4 weeks]

Also - how would someone go about templating for those multiple content types? Obviously it would be one template - but pulling only specific values for each type of content and then turning around and styling them.

Thanks!

Wow, this is what I really need :)

We're working in a community project that will need to pull info from 5 categories and display them in one page.

I wasn't able to see the screen shots, maybe the service is down but from what Emmanuel says, it looks very promising :)

Thanks a lot and keep us posted :)

Hey Guys, Hey Manu,

Do you plan, in your multi use module, to allow a selection of articles which are linked with "select_flexiitem et select flexi_item_reverse" ?

That important for my site. If yes, I will wait, if not, I have to find another way to do that :

Thanks in advance.
