Hi all,

By default, the first time you run /dev/build/, if you are starting with an empty database, default tables are generated, with dummy content.

These are something like:

Home
About us
Contact

I have been wondering if it is possible to alter this behavior so that different pages would be created?

Cheers,

Mo

Yes, when build is called it will invoke requireDefaultRecords(). You can override or create this to do stuff with your own models or prevent existing ones from creating those.

See Ecom for an example:
