I am trying to get a simple report (sheduled pages) in the side bar (not the Report tab).

But everything I try nothing works. In some cases the /admin/ won't show and displays a 404 instead and moastly I get this warning

Warning: SS_Report::register(): 'BlogShedule' is not a subclass of SS_Report in /path/file.php

Error comes when I add


SS_Report::register("SideReport", "BlogShedule");

I defined my class as in the docs


class CustomSideReport_BlogShedule extends SideReport {

What is wrong? Is it still possible to add custom reports into the side bar?

Hope for some help.

You should now just extend SS_Report and you don't need to register reports, that now happens automatically.

Thanks, but it seems your wrong. Unless I put into my _config.php

SS_Report::register('SideReport', 'CustomSideReport', 20);

… it doesn't show up in the report drop-down.

Anyway, now it's working fine :)

Oh sorry, my points referred to 3.0.
