I need to show the list of members in a group to approve based on a field in members

So, I created a MembersToApprovePage.php and extended Page with also a page controller.

 - MembersToApprovePage.php
 * Defines the MembersToApprovePage page type
class MembersToApprovePage extends Page {
	static $db = array (
	static $has_one = array (
	static $allowed_children = array('MembersToApprovePage');
class MembersToApprovePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

function MembersNeedingApproval($num=10) {
  		$membersta = DataObject::get_one("MembersToApprovePage");
		return ($membersta) ? DataObject::get("MembersToApprovePage", "ParentID = $membersta->ID", "DESC", "", $num) : false;

The Page shows up in the CMS fine when I create a page and select a page type, but it doesn't render and I get an error.

Does anyone know of a good tutorial that explains querying a table and showing the list on a page? I tried to emulate Tutorial-2 extending a basic site, but apparently not well enough.

Hi Terry

What's the error that you get? Is it only failing when you call MembersNeedingApproval() from the template?

I think maybe your problem is get_one() - if you want multiple objects you'll need to use get() instead.

You might need to quote the ID in the DataObject get

return ($membersta) ? DataObject::get("MembersToApprovePage", "ParentID = '$membersta->ID'", "DESC", "", $num) : false;
