Hi everyone,

I'm sure this isn't the first time this has been asked, but I haven't been able to locate the answer.

If I create a VirtualPage link to a page that uses DOM, the DOM objects from the 'real' page aren't inherited.. Is that expected behavior? I found a few hacks for individual cases, but I'm curious if either I'm doing something incorrectly or there's a known way to create this dependence.

I've already built the back-end nav structure, so would be nice if there were!

Thanks in advance, for your time!

Solved, thanks to Zauberfisch.

class VirtualPageWithImages extends VirtualPage {
	static $icon = array("cms/images/treeicons/page-shortcut-gold","file");	

	public function getCMSFields() {
		$f = parent::getCMSFields();
		return $f;

class VirtualPageWithImages_Controller extends VirtualPage_Controller {

	public function Photos() { 
		return DataObject::get('Photo', 'PageID = '.$this->CopyContentFrom()->ID);
