Thank you for your reply. I'm not sure if I'm explaining my setup correctly - the content tree looks as you mentioned:
When you navigate to Story 1, I'd like it to display:
[Story 1 field 1]
[Org 1 fields]
[Org 2 fields]
[rest of Story 1 fields]
As I mentioned, I have two "current item" transformations in the hierarchical transformation, one for the story page type at level 0 (with a placeholder for the orgs), and one for the organization page type at level 1.
Do I still need to reorganize something to make this work? On the main page where I'm pulling in all the stories, it does correctly nest the orgs under the story titles.
