Hi, I wonder if there is a SilverStripe extension (or similar) that provides a GUI for administrating page types?
Not as far as I am aware, the goal of the framework is to keep as much of the configuration at the framework level rather than CMS store. What sort of things were you wanting to manage through the GUI?
Hi, sorry for the delay.
Well, I'm not a developer, I only do some concept work. At the moment I write down Page Type definitions (with all necessary fields) in Excel. Then I talk to a developer and he builds the page types in the CMS. I was just wondering if it could be wiser if I could enter my Page Type definitions in the CMS directly and SilverStripe builds the Page Types from the definitions automatically. Of course this would only work for simple Page Types but it could be a base for further developments.
(I saw a similar thing in http://symphony-cms.com/ as far as I remember)
I was thinking not long ago that it would be nice if SiteTreeImporter allowed you to do this. It basically does the first part of what you want, but it would be nice if you could do something like:
Home : HomePage
About : Page
Services : Page
Contact : UserDefinedForm
Unless it can already do this?
Interesting Module, thanks. I also would need a similar "importer" for the Page Types itself then. My Excel looks like the attached screenshot. Well, it's not that easy to solve, I guess ...
