Hi devs,

I need a bit of guidance, i have a DealerHolder.php Page, that will hold DataObject Dealer.
The Dealers should be added to one DealerHolder page, and then be available on translations of this page.
What is the best way to achive this?

Right now i have a many_many relation, and it kinda works, i just need to check each dealer on each translation.
Is there som better / more correct way to achive what i'm looking for?

I think you are wanting


static $has_many("Dealers" => "Dealer");


static $has_one("DealerHolder" => "DealerHolder");

Hi Novaweb,

But as i see it, that does require me to add new dataobjects for each translation, which is a lot of extra work and does gives problems keeping everything in sync.

Is there something i'm not seeing?
