Hi guys, i have over 400s pages of the same type. Some created BEFORE i added a script to the Page class, and some created AFTER i added the script.

- The pages created AFTER correctly returns the data while the pages created BEFORE arent.

- Ive noticed while searching for the problem that if i load in the CMS and nothing more that SAVE&PUBLISH the old pages, they update themselves and correctly shows correct the data.

- so id have to manually OPEN and SAVE&PUBLISH over 400s pages.

QUESTION: is there a way to "shock" the DB and save/update/publish all pages at once?

How about (this untested) code?

$pages = DataObject::get('Page');
if ($pages) foreach ($pages as $page) {
	$page->publish("Stage", "Live");

Hi, that would make sense if:

- its working (where to put that code bit?)

- it was something i wanted to happen in a repetitive manner


I mean, all i what to do is "shock" the entire system ONCE (and saves old pages ONCE) as new pages are rendering correctly.

Sure i could use a function ONCE, do the job and delete it after. Again, where to wrtei your code?

MemberPage.php? (the pages i want to get saved again)

But i was thinking more on the /dev/build side. There must be a routine that does that.

Keep the solutions coming!
