Category page display links for all subpages

Is there an easy way to display links for child pages?  On my page I have 4 main categories that are going to be filled with content.  When I click on one of those categories from the navigation menu I would like the next page to just display names of items in that category which users can click to go to the direct page of that item with a nice write up on it.  So basically I am looking for an automated way to have a category page display names and links of all subpages.

On the page(s) you want to display the links, click on the page settings link and then select the "Show Child Pages Site Map" option.

Very cool thanks!  Is there any way I can put text above the links for that page?  It seems the links appear before anything I can configure.

You can put the Child Pages Site Map anywhere you like but you have to modify the skin to do so.

For instance, most skins have the following:

<asp:Panel id="divCenter" runat="server" visible="True" cssclass="center-rightandleftmargins" SkinID="pnlPlain">
  <portal:Breadcrumbs id="Breadcrumbs" runat="server"></portal:Breadcrumbs>
  <portal:ChildPageMenu id="ChildPageMenu" runat="server" CssClass="txtnormal"></portal:ChildPageMenu>
  <asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="mainContent" runat="server"></asp:ContentPlaceHolder>
</asp:Panel>

You would want to change that to:

<asp:Panel runat="server" visible="True" cssclass="center-rightandleftmargins" SkinID="pnlPlain">
  <portal:Breadcrumbs runat="server"></portal:Breadcrumbs>
  <asp:ContentPlaceHolder runat="server"></asp:ContentPlaceHolder>
  <portal:ChildPageMenu runat="server" CssClass="txtnormal"></portal:ChildPageMenu>
</asp:Panel>

Ok.  Is there a tutorial or documents on how to do customization and advanced customization?

For skin customizations, you can look here: http://www.mojoportal.com/creatingskins.aspx.

I apologize, I forgot to mention that you would make those changes to the layout.master file in your skin directory \data\sites\[site number\skins\[Your Chosen Skin]
