    Problem with Subsites Module Link to this post

    Hi,

    I managed to install the Subsites module (well... I guess I did) without issues. When I did the

    db/build/?flush=1

    it returned the updated database info. But I don't get a Subsites main menu entry. Is there something else I'm supposed to do?

    Thank you.

    Hey there,

    I've just spent all day on this, and then in the subsites/README file I found this:

    Requirements
    -----------------------------------------------
    - genericdataadmin Module

    I installed the genericdataadmin module (checked out the truck from here: http://open.silverstripe.com/browser/modules/genericdataadmin/trunk) and the menu option appeared... now to figure out if subsites even does what I was after.

    FYI: I'm using 2.3.0rc1 and the trunk of the subsites module too.

    I was under the impression that the genericdataadmin stuff had been replaced by modeladmin in 2.3, so if the subsites module does require it then I wouldn't be suprised if it doesn't work.

    The last time I tested the subsites trunk code was on 2.2.2, and it seemed to work ok on that after a bit of coaxing.

    Hey jam13,

    Today is my first day on SilverStripe, I'm evaluating it for a project I've got coming up. So anything that I do is probably wrong!

    Even though adding the genericdataadmin module made the menu item appear on the backend, it appeared that the functionality mentioned in the wiki just wasn't there - I could create subsites, but the drop down list did not appear on the Site Content page and if I tried accessing the subdomain on the normal site it would give an error message. I suspect that it will need a more experienced mind than mine to get this working with 2.3.0.

    It even says at the top of the genericadminmodule:

    * @deprecated Use {@link ModelAdmin} instead, it's much more advanced and does much more for you.

    Subsites are a requirement for my project, but not an urgent one, so I may still be able to use SilverStripe (it's certainly the best CMS I've seen so far), but I'll be waiting with baited breath for subsites to be fixed for 2.3.0.
