Adding to a DataObject

Add a has_one or many_many relationship to "Imgix::class" in the same way you would with "Image::class". See example below

use PlatoCreative\Imgix\Imgix;

class MyCustomPage extends Page
	private static $has_one = array(
		'Image' => Imgix::class

    private static $many_many = array(
		'Images' => Imgix::class,

	public function getCMSFields()
		$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
		return $fields;
