    Sending Response after Publish Link to this post


    in a page type extending SiteTree I am overwriting doPublish() to perform some checks before and then decide wether to publish or not. Now I am looking for a way to get a message back to the user if publishing was blocked. Even I searched for two days now I only found the manipulation of the response description yet, which is displayed as a black, fading message box. This would be fine for me, but customer finds it not "alerting" enough, so I am urgently looking for a way, to send any custom HTML / Javascript signal.

    See the Code, might explain it better:

    public function doPublish() {
       if ( check_something() ) {
          #this works fine, but isn't enough
          Controller::curr()->getResponse()->setStatusCode(500, 'Not Published!');
          # here i would like to send any HTML / javascript signal back to the CMS admin ui.
          return false;
       return true;

    I would be very happy for any hint or idea!

    I wish you nice holidays,
