Document Management Module (DMS)
The module adds a new
DMSDocument model which allows management of large amounts of files, and their relations to
pages. In contrast to the
File model built into SilverStripe core, it aims to wrap storage and access concerns in
a generic API. This allows more fine-grained control over how the documents are managed and exposed through the website.
Additionally, documents are stored and managed as part of a page instead of away in a separate assets store.
- Relation of documents to pages
- Relation of documents to other documents
- Management and upload of documents within a page context in the CMS
- Metadata management through the powerful

Translations of the natural language strings are managed through a third party translation interface, transifex.com. Newly added strings will be periodically uploaded there for translation, and any new translations will be merged back to the project source code.
Please use https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/silverstripe-dms/ to contribute translations, rather than sending pull requests with YAML files.
See the "i18n" topic on doc.silverstripe.org for more details.
