Hmm.. Well, DataObjectManager isn't a theme, it's a form field for the CMS. If you want comments on your dataobjects, just add a has_many PageComments relationship and you can handle all the logic and form handling on the front end.

Hi again,

i'm trying it but I've a doubt. How do I relate PageComment with my dataobject table (e.g. 'testimonial')?

I've seen pagecomment is related to sitetree pages through "ParentID" field. So I've added a new field to pagecomment table: "testimonialID". Is it correct? Now I have to rewrite comment functions for my dataobject?

It's more complicated than that. It's going to take quite a bit of programming. I would avoid using PageComments all together and create your own MyDataObjectComment class. Give it a has_one with your DataObject, and give your DataObject a has_many with the Comment object.

Then, on the front end, you'll need to build a form for each one of the objects that gets displayed that runs a script on the DataObject Holder controller to add a comment to the DataObject.

If you're new to SS, it's probably not something you want to take on. I'm happy to code it up for you, but I don't do any pro-bono work, so it would be for a cost.

Thank you, UncleCheese.

I've been working with SS for a week cause my boss asked me to look for a CMS to use in the studio and I really love how SS works.

I think I'm starting to understand it and you've been really helpful cause, as I said, I've created a new field in pagecommet table for my data object ID and now I was changing all the commets code. I'll start again and I'll create my own class.

Thanks for your offering but I'm so excited with all the SS code and I'll try to do it on my own.

Thx again! :D

Hi

I want to add a comment to my DataObjectManager, what I did:
1. new class DataObjectComment extends PageComment
2. new class DataObjectCommentInterface extends PageCommentInterface
3. added $ has_many in DataObjectManager and $ has_one in DataObjectComment
4. created a form to post comments

form and adding some comments (I added a couple directly to the DB) is displayed on the page, but when you press the "add post" error message
[User Warning] popCurrent called on ModelAsController controller, but it wasn't at the top of the stack

I understand that this is a error, but I do not know how to get around, someone can help?
