    retrieving cms field in function Link to this post


    I'm trying to retrieve the value of a cms field inside a function but it does't work

    In code.php

    class SomeClassPage extends Page{
       static $db = array(
          'AutorizedContent'   => 'HTMLText',
          'ForbidenContent'   => 'HTMLText'


       function getCMSFields(){
          $f = parent::getCMSFields();
          $f->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.AutorizedContent', new HTMLEditorField('AutorizedContent'));
          $f->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.ForbidenContent', new HTMLEditorField('ForbidenContent'));
          return $f;

    then I have

    class SomeClassPage_Controller extends Page_Controller{


       function Authorise(){

                            return $this->ForbidenContent;

    in template

    <% if Authorise %> $ForbidenContent<% end_if %>

    Any idea
