I am going to build a small web-app where users can share travel destinations. The main website uses SilverStripe and now I'd like to use SS for the new add-on too.
At frist, I wanted to add a new pagetype and put all special features in its php code. But there will be a lot of (roughly 500 p.a.) destinations, so the SiteTree in SS-Back-end will get pretty slow after a while.
All travel destinations consist of about 20 text fields, some links and five photos.
Is there any chance to block those pages in SiteTree? Or is there a better way to integrate this into SS? Would love to hear some tipps and links!
Thanks for the Link. I'll give it a try. I was a little bit afraid about the performance in back-end if there are a lot of objects. I was really impressed, as I saw there is now problem with 50000 entries :-) I had tested it with another module that displays objects in a similar way. The next days I check if the DataObjects can do what I want (… or better, if I can do it with DataObjects :-)
I think there will be some other questions that'll come :-D
