Hi all ! Can somebody help me with this problem ?

Logbook is a class extending ModelAdmin.
It has two managed models : "Import" and "Export".

Thing is : Everything works fine with only one managed model active... only when I upload the other one and add it in Logbook, I can still show the "Logbook" tab but can't show/add exports or imports.
(There is also a weird margin around the cms window.)

I get this error :

 The action 'admin' does not exist in class LogBook

--> POST 404 Not Found 250ms

See how "admin/logbook" is repeated ?
I think that might be the result of the CMS trying to do something with the url, adding another "admin/logbook" by mistake... not considering it actually IS in "admin/logbook" already.

Any idea ?

i have similar thing code works on Silverstripe 2.3.7 but upgraded to Silverstripe 2.4.5 and doesn't work.

not sure if its a director rule that needs to be created. but i cannot seem to solve.

Director::addRules(50, array('admin/GlobalAdmin/$Class/$Action/$ID' => 'GlobalAdmin'));

Mysite>Code> GlobalAdmin.php
class GlobalAdmin extends ModelAdmin {

public static $managed_models = array(
'Footer','FooterIcon','Office', 'NavStyle', 'paypal_payment_info'

static $url_segment = 'Global'; // will be linked as /admin/products
static $menu_title = 'Global';


in admin when i search a results page will come up but "not" withinthe admin the page will be a plain page listing results. and the links to edit or view record are formatted like

Hi merrick_sd,

Just so you know, I had to separate my Imports and my Exports to make it work (two different managed models).
I'll try again when I have some free time to do it.

Hope you'll manage to do what you want ! :)
