DataObjects by Page

Hey guys,

So, I've got a DataObject I've created which I add to a page using a HasManyComplexTableField in SS 2.4. However, once I've added items to this table, those very objects show in every page. Is there a way I can make it so added items show only for that page?

If your page has a has_many relation to these DataObjects, You'd probably better use the basic ComplexTableField, not the HasManyComplexTableField. Or the DataObjectManager for that matter :)

Hi Martimiz,

Thanks for the reply.

So, a funny thing happened. I did a search in Google about this very problem and I found an old post, about two years old or so. Guess who posted it? Me! Guess who helped me fix it? You!!! :-D

Turned out, I simply had to replace my use of HasManyComplexTableField with the DataObjectManager and bang! It works :-)

Thanks again, for this time and the last ;-) I guess I need to keep track of all these nuances in one place, as I seem to hit the same problems now and again :-D
