Hi Aske

solution yet. Will investigate further into this.

Aren't there two possibilities?
- You add a (single) button before the first Content, which might be 
quite ugly.
- You add an additional "add content before button" (maybe the + sign 
with an arrow directed upwards) to the currently first content?

element after a very long content element, you won't even see it.

I tried to, but I cannot add subtasks with my priviledges. Is adding 
subtasks forbidden for "normal users"?

yet? I remember one of Robert's (?) presentations where all nodes were 
visible in the page tree and they could be moved there. How can I 
achieve that?

At the moment I can sort/move content only by cutting and pasting, which 
I consider not being very user-friendly.

Since a content is a node just like a page, I think it would be 
theoretically possible to display all contents in the tree and make them 
sortable there. I remember a presentation (an earlier Alpha maybe?) 
where this worked somehow.

Or is there another concept to move contents?

Best regards,
