Hi There,

I am using FileDataObjectManager to create my Resources Page and announcement page.
Is it to possible to create another page to enable visitor to click and see more details for each resource.

On I just display a little information, I want them to click on title and direct to a new page which display only one record with all additional detail information.

Your I really appreciated.



class Resource extends DataObject {

static $db = array(
'Title' => 'Text',
'Description' => 'HTMLText',
'Date' => 'Date'
static $has_one = array(
'ResourcePage' => 'ResourcePage',
'ResourceFile' => 'File'
static $singular_name = "Resource";
static $plural_name = "Resources";

function getCMSFields() {
$fields = new FieldSet(
new TextField('Title', 'Title'),
new SimpleHTMLEditorField('Description', 'Description'),
new FileUploadField('ResourceFile', 'Addional Information'),
new DatePickerField('Date', 'Released Date')
return $fields;

class ResourcePage extends Page {

static $icon = "";
static $db = array();
static $has_one = array();
static $has_many = array(
'Resources' => 'Resource'
static $singular_name = "Resource Page";
static $plural_name = "Resource Pages";
function getCMSFields(){
$myfields = parent::getCMSFields();
$mytable = new FileDataObjectManager(
'Title' => 'Title',
'Description' => 'Description',
'Date' => 'Date'
$myfields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Resources', $mytable);
return $myfields;

class ResourcePage_Controller extends Page_Controller{



class ResourcePageHolder extends Page {

static $db = array();
static $allowed_children = array('RsourcePage');
static $singular_name = 'RsourcePage';
class ResourcePageHolder_Controller extends Page_Controller {


<div class="typography">
<% if Resources %>
<% control Resources %>
<div id="announcelist">
<li class="title"><b><a href="$Link">$Title</a></b></li>

<li class="details">
<a href="$ResourceFile.Link"><b>Download Detail</b></a>
<% if Date %>
<span class="listdate"> Expiry Date: $Date.Nice</span>

<% end_if %>

<% end_control %>
<% else %>
<p>There is no record.</p>
<% end_if %>
