Hi, I have a field in my Page.php getCMSFields function that I want to display on every TOP level page only. I don't want the field to show up in any level higher than 1. Is there a simple variable I can check with an if statement to do this?
Hey, thanks for replying. I found Parent() in the API, earlier but I couldn't figure out how to use it.
I tried your if statement, but it doesn't work. The field doesn't show up anywhere, and when I negate the if-statement you showed me, the field shows up on all pages, regardless of their hierarchy :(
It depends on how you have your architecture set up. Find out the parentID and just use that..
if $this->Parent() is returning true, it will return something other than 0 in the LiteralField, in which case, you're not really at the top level. If you want to leave it the way it is, just do
if($this->ParentID == $theID)
//add the field
or you could even do
if($this->Parent()->URLSegment == "some-page"))
you see what I mean..
I see what you mean. I was able to get my code to work with this statement:
Thanks for your help!!
I want to do this but the other way around. that is I have two image fields that I want to display only on top level... not children.
(the fields are declared in page.php)
Specifically on the blog entries in my blog module.
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.menuImage", new ImageField('menuImage'));
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.menuImage", new ImageField('menuImageRoll'));
but this did not work. fields still appear.
can anyone help?
