I'd like to have access to a function from every one of my controllers. Is there a best practice for doing this?

I'm thinking of extending ContentController, adding the function and then have all my controllers extend this Controller.

Thoughts? Better ways to do it. I'm new, so I apologize if I missed a previous thread or documentation on where this is addressed.

If all your custom page extend Page and their Controllers extend Page_Controller then you could just put it in Page_Controller since all the other controllers will inherit it
