DataObjectAsPage Module


The module provides functionality for displaying DataObjects managed via ModelAdmin to appear as though they were full Pages on the front end of the site. It includes versioning, allowing Draft and Published versions of the DataObject as well as a modified search engine to include the DataObjects in the site search.
