Features

How to use

Pages

Add the following to a configuration yml file:

CatalogPage:
  extensions:
    - CatalogPageExtension
  parentClass:
    - 'CatalogParentPage'

Where CatalogPage is the page type you wish to administer (e.g. BlogEntry) and CatalogParentPage is where the pages should be stored in the SiteTree (e.g. BlogHolder). You may have multiple instances of the parent, the administration will provide users with a drop down to choose which page should be the parent.

You can also create pages in the root of the project (i.e. ParentID = 0) by not providing a parent class.

LandingPage:
  extensions:
    - CatalogPageExtension

Then simply extend CatalogPageAdmin instead of ModelAdmin.

DataObjects

You can also manage DataObjects through the CatalogDataObjectExtension

Translations

If you are using the translatable module, you can use the TranslatableCatalogExtension to provide functionality for choosing languages.

CatalogPageAdmin:
  extensions:
    - TranslatableCatalogExtension

Options

Hide pages in CMS

When managing pages with catalogmanager you might want to hide this pages in CMS. You can do this by adding the HidePageChildrenExtension to the holder page, e.g.

CatalogPage:
  extensions:
    - CatalogPageExtension
  parentClass:
    - 'CatalogParentPage'
CatalogParentPage:
  extensions:
    - HidePageChildrenExtension

Duplication of pages

You can disable the ability to duplicate pages through the can_duplicate configuration setting per object.

CatalogPage:
  extensions:
    - CatalogPageExtension
  parentClass:
    - 'CatalogParentPage'
  can_duplicate: false

Drag and drop sorting

You can add drag and drop sorting using GridFieldSortableRows when you add the sort_column setting to your configuration. Uses column Sort by default which is default in SiteTree and is added by CatalogDataObjectExtension.

CatalogPage:
  extensions:
    - CatalogPageExtension
  parentClass:
    - 'CatalogParentPage'
  sort_column: 'CustomSort'

If you want to disable drag and drop sorting just set sort_column to false

CatalogPage:
  extensions:
    - CatalogPageExtension
  parentClass:
    - 'CatalogParentPage'
  sort_column: false

Sort columns automatically update the sort column of both the staged and live versions of the object. To disable this, you can set the configuration option automatic_live_sort to false through your config.

CatalogPage:
  extensions:
    - CatalogPageExtension
  parentClass:
    - 'CatalogParentPage'
  automatic_live_sort: false
