    getTitle - Undefined property: Page::$Title Link to this post

    Hi, I have notied some strange behaviour within Silverstripe 3.1

    I created some kind of Translation for a Page the following way:

    class Page extends SiteTree {

       private static $db = array(
    'Title_en' => "Varchar(255)",
    'Content_en' => "HTMLText"

    public function getTitle(){
    if(i18n::get_locale() == 'de_DE'){
    return $this->Title;
    return $this->Title_en;

    public function getContent(){
    if(i18n::get_locale() == 'de_DE'){
    return $this->Content;
    return $this->Content_en;

    This throws a Notice, as of "$this->Title" isn't known within getTitle(), but why?

    Anyone any Ideas?

    This is because PHP stops infinite recursion on magic methods. $this->Title would call $this->getTitle() which would call $this->Title which would call $this->getTitle() and so on.

    Instead, use $this->getField('Title')
