Is there such a thing? I want to store a list of links related to a page, editable from the CMS. And it should work like the link widget in the HTMLEditor. Is this possible?

I'm not sure how much of this can be done exactly the same way, but I would create a DataObject like...

class MyLinkURL extends DataObject {
   static $db = array(
      'LinkURL'       => 'Varchar',//possibly use HTMLfield to allow creating a link in that way...

then I'd add has_many to the Page type required, then add the has_many as a tab when editting the page

static $has_many = array(
   'MyLinkURLs'            => 'MyLinkURL',
function getCMSFields() {
   $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
      new ComplexTableField(
   return $fields;

Thanks for the tip. I had sort of given it up already and simply faked it using virtual pages. Kind of user friendly, but the urls gets messy.

I'll look into your tip.
