I am trying to get my custom page type to be displayed in the CMS with a custom name.

Managed to do this by using the language file in this way:
$lang['nl_NL']['PortfolioPage']['SINGULARNAME'] = "Portfolio Pagina";

In the CMS the folowing gets dispayed:

Portfolio Pagina (PortfolioPage)

Is there a way to get rid of: (PortfolioPage)? Is there a way to directly set the SINGULARNAME in the PortfolioPage class in PortfolioPage.php?

Best regards,

Figured it out myself, in facts it's very easy.

In the Model class add:

static $add_action = 'name of the page type';
