Hi out there,

I hope you can help me and btw I hope I´m in the right forum :) :

I want a custom page which is a subclass of page to be by default not visible in menu.
There is a checkbox in the CMS called "Show in menus?" be deault this chebox is checked... but I don´t want that.

I think there should be a variable such as

static $is_visible_in_menus = false;

is there such a variable?

best regards

You can use the $defaults array.

// mysite/code/Page.php

static $defaults = array(
'ShowInMenus' => false
