Hi Rishi,

I think this can be done by using the canCreate method in your AlbumPage class.

function canCreate() {
if(DataObject::get_one('AlbumPage')) {
return false;
} else {
return true;

Yeah, create a subclass of ImageGalleryAlbum, and create a function like:

public function canCreate() {
return !DataObject::get_one(__CLASS__);

Then create a subclass of ImageGalleryPage, and assign the new album class

protected $albumClass = "MyAlbumSubclass";
