Hi.
I would like to know how the following scenario would be achievable. I would like to create module, combine the site content functionality and dataobject relationship functions (also, include language translations, if possible).

URL references:
- Create a module (http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=private:tutorial:creating-a-module)
- Dataobject Relationship (http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=tutorial:5-dataobject-relationship-management)

In essence, [Q1] how would I be able to extract the basic functionality of the site content like the default fields such as the Title, Navigation Label and Meta Information and use it in combination with a custom module created on the CMS? In addition, for language translation abilities, [Q2] how would I go about implementing it for the Dataobject Relationship such as for a Complex Table or Many Many Complex Table.

Thanks

The new ModelAdmin controller (coming up in our 2.3 release) might be what you're looking for? http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=modeladmin

It doesn't support translations yet, though, although that shouldn't be too hard to implement once the Translatable datamodel changes find their way into a release. Help appreciated ;)
