Here's the situation I have a Product page type and Top10Page page type. The Top10Page type is supposed to hold a list of Top 10 Products, I assume for that I need a $many_many relationship.

In my Top10Page I have the following:

static $many_many = array ('Products'=>'Product');

which should establish the relationship with the Product Pages

In the Product I have

static $belongs_many_many = array('Top10Pages' => 'Top10Page');

which should establish the relationship back with the Top10Pages.

However when I dev/build it doesn't complete the process. The relationship works if its just Top10Page $has_many Product but I will have more than 1 Top10Page in system at a time. Am I missing a step?

I really don't think I understand how the $many_many relation works

EDIT Tracked down the problem to the Multi Selector Field Module
