    Gridfield concept? Link to this post

    Hi,
    As far as I know, using gridfields is the only way in SilverStripe (3) to assign multiple items to one page. Let's take images for example. A lot of pages can show a gallery or carousel of a various number of images. Now, if I add or remove gridfield-images to/from an existing page, all my changes are immediately visible on the published site. In addition if I translate such a page, the images are not overtaken to the translation.

    These behaviours break with the basic publishing workflow concept of SilverStripe. Which is uncomfortable for a regular user and a problem with picky clients. Especially if the workflow module comes into play.

    Is there anything I'm missing here or are there any plans to change this behaviour in future?

    Thanks
    Jan
