    CMS field names Link to this post

    I saw an old post in the archive that referenced "doing a print_r of getCMSFields()" to get the variable names of all the fields 'parent' fields in the CMS. Does anyone have a copy of this list to post, or can anyone show me how to use this print_r to generate the list??

    When on the Page class, or a subclass of, you usually have something like this:

    function getCMSFields() {
       $fields = parent::getCMSFields();


       $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextField('Author'));

       return $fields;

    The Debug::show($fields) will show you all fields that were automatically added in the CMS, and you can manipulate those as necessary, removing fields that you don't want or adding new ones.
