I've created a little 'blurb' text area for a page type, when I flush the database, it appears to create the field, but it never shows up in the back end. On another site, it's working fine, and I can't think of why it's not here.

I have:
1) added this code (below)
2) flushed database
3) assigned new page type to content items

UPDATE: I've just pulled the code over to another page type and it works fine. Just not in the new one...

PS. Do I get a gold star for asking the most questions? :)

class TeamMember extends Page {

static $db = array(
"IntroductionText" => "Text",
"Blurb" => "Text",
);
}

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

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new TextareaField("IntroductionText", "Short Blurb"), "Content");
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new TextareaField("Blurb", "Blurb"), "Content");

return $fields;
}

class TeamMember_Controller extends Page_Controller {
}

?>

If thats a direct copy of your code, you'll need to move the function getCMSFields() into the class for it to do anything :-)

(I think its just a misplaced squigly bracket)

IE:

class TeamMember extends Page {

static $db = array(
"IntroductionText" => "Text",
"Blurb" => "Text",
);
function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new TextareaField("IntroductionText", "Short Blurb"), "Content");
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new TextareaField("Blurb", "Blurb"), "Content");

return $fields;
}

}

We should run a competition or something for the person that discovers the most bugs :-p

eh, stupid }'s ;) thanks, fixed now.

Man, nothing like a little PHP to make you feel braindead.

I'm in for the bug finding, though I believe I am more of a bug creator, all things ocnsidered ;)

I'm sure we could create a ranking board for forum members who ask the most questions. I think you're #1 at the moment anyways. ;)

Cheers,
