[Solved] How to hide subpages of type ArticlePage from Tutorial 2

I have used the very good [url=]Tutorial 2 - extending a basic site [/url] to create a table of summaries of sub pages in the same way as the tutorial shows a list of articles. However I want to make the sub pages inaccessible to site visitors as all the information I want to show is in the table of summaries.

Is there a way of doing this? Unpublishing the sub-pages removes them from the table.

I hope this makes sense. Referring to the tutorial I want to hide all the pages of type ArticlePage and only show ArticleHolder.

thanks in advance!

// in ArticlePage
static $defaults = array(
'ShowInMenus' => 0

Thanks for this nimesodelta - but I already have that in my code to prevent the subpages appearing in the menus.

What I am wanting is for the pages to be inaccessible - that is return a 404 page if access is attempted.

I want the content to appear in the parent page (ArticleHolder) only.

is this possible?

How about...

function index(){

Thanks for the pointer - and the quick response!

The code you posted gave me function not found error, but the following worked for me

in ArticlePage.php:

function index(){
$errorPage = DataObject::get_one('ErrorPage');
