README

Adds generic featured image to defined DataObjects and adds some extra helper methods

Instalation

Install via composer:

composer require "i-lateral/silverstripe-featuredimage"

Setup

First off you need to map the extension to the object you want to add featured images to. You can do this via YML config:

Path\To\My\Object:
    extensions:
        - ilateral\SilverStripe\FeaturedImage\ObjectExtension

NOTE By default, this module adds a featured image to SiteTree (if the CMS is installed).

Usage

By default this module adds a field FeaturedImage to the CMS for your extended objects. This module also adds some simple helper methods:

Object::getFeaturedImagesFromHierachy(): Get a list of images, first from the current object and any parents, grandparents, etc. If the object doesn't support hierachy, then only a list with one item is returned.

Object::getFeaturedImagesFromDescendants(): Get a list of images, first from the current object and any parents, grandparents, etc. If the object doesn't support hierachy, then only a list with one item is returned.

Blog Module

If the blog module is installed, this module will copy featured image ID's into the new FeaturedImageID on SiteTree
