    [SOLVED] Extending the navigation Link to this post


    I hope i'm not asking an absolute noob-question, as it's my first post here while working on my first silverstripe-project. I have rtfm, and tried to Google for an answer, so please don't flame me.

    I want to do the following: add a "subtitle" to navigation-items, which can be admin-ed in the CMS. The main $MenuTitle would end up in an <h2>-tag, followed by the subtitle ($MenuSubTitle?).

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: [SOLVED] Extending the navigation Link to this post

    You can simply add a new Field to the CMS, by adding it to the $db array and the required input field in the getCMSFields method.
    Pretty much like described in Tutorial 2: http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=tutorial:2-extending-a-basic-site#adding_date_and_author_fields

    These fields can also be accessed in the navigation. The name (eg. MenuSubTitle) is entirely up to you (as long as it doesn't conflict with existing field-names).

    Good luck
