I have an image I am using on my home page that is controlled form the Image tab on my CMS for that page. I added treedropdown field and then a checkbox to note if the user wants the selected page to be a link or not.

I cant get the checkbox to control the IF statement. Do i need to do something else in the IF statement, like note a value or something? right now the IF staement makes the DonatePhotoLink div appear all the time no matter the checkbox state. Thanks in advance!

<div id="DonateImageHome">
				<div id="DonatePhotoHome">$Photo</div>
				<% if ActivateLink %><div id="DonatePhotoLink">&nbsp;</div><% end_if %>


class Page extends SiteTree {
	static $db = array(
	 static $has_one = array(
     'Photo' => 'Image',
	 'MainImageLink' => 'SiteTree',
	 'ActivateLink' => 'Boolean'

  function getCMSFields() {
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
      $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Images", new ImageField("Photo"));
   	$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Images', new TreeDropdownField('MainImageLinkID', 'Link image to', 'SiteTree'));
	$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Images', new CheckboxField ('ActivateLink')); 
      return $fields;

The 'ActivateLink' => 'Boolean' should be in the $db array, not the has_one array. Move that and run dev/build again, select the checkbox again in the cms, save and that should fix it.
