Snippets - Little bits of code to make you happy

Create an 'Edit this page' Link

For some sites you may want your client to be able to click a link on a particlar page and be taken strait to that page in the admin area. Here's what a link that does just that would look like:


<a href="admin/show/{$ID}" title="edit this page">Edit this page</a>

If you wanted this to only show up when a user is logged in you could use the CurrentMember call to check. So it would look like this:


<% if CurrentMember %>
      <a href="admin/show/{$ID}" title="edit this page">Edit this Page</a>
<% end_if %>

You could also take this a step further and write a function in your page controller to check whether the current user has permission to access the CMS using Permission::check('CMS_ACCESS_CMSMain') call.
