Hi all

I'm trying to create a custom RedirectorPage by subclassing said class like so:

class MyRedirectorPage extends RedirectorPage
{
 ...
}

Sadly, this doesn't seem to work. I can't get the new page to show up in the "Create" dropdown...
This is on SilverStripe 2.3.1 rc2.
Any clues?

Cheers - Roman

Hey,

Did you ever get anywhere with this? I'm trying to do the same thing and it won't build (keeps coming up with "Unknown class passed as parameter" as an error (see below):

[Warning] Unknown class passed as parameter
GET /[website]/index.php/dev/build?flush=1
Line 420 in E:\Inetpub\[url=http://wwwroot\[website]\sapphire\core\Object.php]wwwroot\[website/]\sapphire\core\Object.php

412 	 * call.
413 	 */
414 	private static function prepare_statics($class) {
415 		// _cache_statics_prepared setting must come first to prevent infinite loops when we call
416 		// get_static below
417 		self::$_cache_statics_prepared[$class] = true;
418 
419 		// load statics now for DataObject classes
420 		if(is_subclass_of($class, 'DataObject')) {
421 			$extensions = Object::get_static($class, 'extensions');
422 			if($extensions) foreach($extensions as $extension) {
423 				if(preg_match('/^([^(]*)/', $extension, $matches)) {
424 					$extensionClass = $matches[1];
425 					DataObjectDecorator::load_extra_statics($class, $extensionClass);
426 				}

Sorry all - pls disregard cos I figured it out. Error was coming from a typo in the .php filename.

Just for completeness, all I did was as follows:

CustomRedirectorPage.php

<?php
/**
 * Defines the CustomRedirectorPage page type
 */

class CustomRedirectorPage extends RedirectorPage {
	
	static $db = array(
		);
	
	static $has_one = array(
		/* add main content images */
		"BackImage" => "Image"
		);

	/* get the CMS fields for the custom data items */
	function getCMSFields() {
		$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
		
		$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Images', new ImageField('BackImage', 'Back Image'));
		
		return $fields;
	}
}

class CustomRedirectorPage_Controller extends RedirectorPage_Controller {
	
	/* initialise the content page */
	public function init() {
		parent::init();
	}
}
?>

Thassit. :)

Cheers,

Christian
