I have a DataObject attached to the Page Controller and a Custom Function to check it Exists in the Template, however it looks like Extra Dataobjects don't get attached to the CMS login pages and as such Generates an Error for a Malformed SQL query. Whats the BEst way to resolve this?

This is the Query in my Page Controller

function LifeStyleShot() {
		$result = DataObject::get("ExtraPageImages","Category = 'Lifestyle' AND PageID=".$this->ID);
		if($result) {
			return $result;
		else {
			$backup = DataObject::get("ExtraPageImages","Category = 'Lifestyle' AND PageID=".$this->ParentID);
			if($backup) {
				return $backup;
			else {
				return false;

The Template Code on the looks like this:

<% if LifeStyleShot %>	
	<% control LifeStyleShot %>
		<img id="lifestyle" src="$Attachment.URL" width="960" height="401" alt="lifestle" />
	<% end_control %>
<% else %>
	<img id="lifestyle" src="themes/loverschoice/img/lifestyle2.jpg" width="960" height="401" alt="lifestle" />
<% end_if %>

Try wrapping the template code with <% if ClassName = Security %><% else %><!-- DO CODE --><% end_if %> or you could check for the actual ID. <% if ID %><!-- DO CODE --><% end_if %> or you can put that in your PHP code at the top - if(!$this->ID) return false;

Thanks willr,

The Security Page has an ID of -1 out of curiosity do all the sapphire "utility" pages have negative ID's I can't find them in the Site Tree Table
