    ModelAdmin and scaffolding on a Page (SiteTree) type Link to this post

    Hi there!

    I was just wondering why ModelAdmin scaffolds all my fields nicely when the type is extended from DataObject and when I extend from SiteTree (or Page) I only get 3 "boring" fields and not all of them.

    Is there a way to enable all fields without adding the fields manually via getCmsFields() ?

    Also I just came across DataObjectManager - I feel that its somewhat down the same road of ModelAdmin. Are the usage of these two any different? Anyone deprecated og better suitet for certain purposes?

    Hi neros3,

    ModelAdmin is setup to scafold DataObject and even though SiteTree/Page is a subclass of that it doesn't do it eh? Not something I've ever needed, but it does annoy me when creating pages and it doesn't scaffold everything for me.

    DOM is a community supported module by UncleCheese (see it's own forum area) it does several things that ModelAdmin does, but with the addition of SS3 it will no longer work as the "DataGrid" is coming. Of course best way to tell is to try 'em both out!
