Allows CMS admins to view an image in a SilverStripe dialog popup from the "Add Page" screen. Requires developer to make a screenshot of the page type but can be useful for sites that contain many different page types, or page types that are similar with slightly different layouts.

Requirements

  • SilverStripe 3.1 or higher

Installation & Documentation

  • Download and extract folder to SilverStripe root directory.
  • Do a dev/build

Usage

Add a new private static $preview_image to your class with the full relative link to your preview image.

class Page Extends SiteTree { 
     private static $preview_image = 'themes/yourtheme/images/pagepreviews/page.jpg';
}

Anytime you add or change the $preview_image static you will need to run a dev/build. If you want to hide the preview link on a particular page type use an empty string.

 private static $preview_image = '';
