Well, you can do that with 'slide' using 'levelfield' (search the
datatype reference [1] for 'slide').

But if you want to use content elements--I didn't see your reason for
wanting to do so in your other threads--just use a CONTENT cobject
[2]. CONTENT works something like this:

page.10 = CONTENT
page.10 {
  table = tt_content
  table = tt_content

  ### Get some records:
  select {
    pidInList = this
    orderBy = sorting

  ### Render all or part of those records:
  renderObj = HTML
  renderObj {
    value {
      dataWrap = {field:foo},

CONTENT also has a property called 'slide', so you should be able to
walk up the roootline to get content when a page has none of its own.
