I am new to magento, and it seems pretty complicated (although i have worked with several MVC frameworks such as symfony or cake).
Anyway, i am trying to extend the functionality of the CMS module , by adding a parent_id column to the cms_page table. I managed to extend the (cms/page) module , and to create a block for displaying the arborescence of the pages in a tree-like menu in the frontend. The problem that i encountered is in the admin part . i don’t know how to make magento use my block instead of Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Cms_Page_Edit_Tab_Main , because i can’t find the block’s identifier in XML , to be able to write in app/etc/local.xml something like
I am not sure this is the right way to do it , if i am wrong, please correct me
I don’t have a clear understading of how all this system works, i am discovering as I go , is there any place to find some documentation about Magento ? Any official release ? Symfony has a great book posted online which guides you step by step in discovering the framework. Is there anything similar for Magento ?
Any help is greatly appreciated . Thank you
