yes - the main problem of TV is that it doesn't store information about
position and order of content elements in a page with convention way but
inside an internal XML-document, which is is stored in the table 'pages'
=> orderBy statements and any other kind of SQL-queries defined by TS
can't be use => building content related menus are extremely painful and
You must create some code to look the XML document, where order has been
