can anyone give me some direction on how to make a regular horizontal tabset? Do you just leave the vertical off?

In the CMS? should do it automatically.

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main.Foo", new TextField('Bar'));

I tried what you sggested. The build went fine, but when I tried to create the page type in the CMS I got a pop-up window an error... any thoughts???

MY .php File
---------------------------------------
<?php

class test extends Page {

static $db = array(
'1' => 'Text',
'2' => 'Text',
'3' => 'Text',
'4' => 'Text',
'5' => 'Text',
);

static $has_one = array(
);

static $defaults = array(
'ProvideComments' => true
);

function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main.Profile', new TextField('1'));
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main.Subject1', new TextField('2'));
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main.Subject2', new TextField('3'));
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main.subject3', new TextField('4'));
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main.Subject4', new TextField('5'));

return $fields;}

}

class test_Controller extends Page_Controller {

}

?>

-------------------

The Error
