I would like to do the following with the CMS so that I can pick am images from the files area and then also select a link of a page for it to go to.

<% if Image%>
<p><a href="$ImageLink">$Image.SetWidth(222)</a></p>
<% end_if %>

I have figured out the Image part but what I need to do is to setup a drop down in the backend to select a page from the CMS

If anyone is able to help that would be good.

Thank you

What you're after is a TreeDropdownField. has an example about using it to select a Page.

Thank you for the link. I have tried a few different options to get this working and cannot figure this out. I am not really a developer so there is a little more guess to this. This is what I have now the problem is I cannot figure out how to make this appear in the backend so i can select a page:

   static $has_one = array(
  'Banner' => 'Image',
  'Podone' => 'Image',
  'Podtwo' => 'Image',
  'Podthree' => 'Image',
  'RightContent' => 'SiteTree'

   function getCMSFields() {
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
     $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Banner", new ImageField('Banner'));
     $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Pods", new ImageField('Podone'));
     $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Pods", new ImageField('Podtwo'));
     $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Pods", new ImageField('Podthree'));
	$treedropdownfield = new TreeDropdownField("RightContentID", "Choose a page to show on the right:", "SiteTree");

      return $fields;

I tired a few different things but nothing worked.

Thank you in advance

I ended up using this

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Pods", new TreeDropdownField('PodlinkoneID', 'Select the page...', 'SiteTree'));

I got a few errors but this was because I needed to add .URLSegment in the
