If template not exists redirect to 404

Silverstripe Version: 4.3.1

Hey, I have a PersonHolder.php with a template PersonHolder.ss which has PersonPage.php as allowed_children. The PersonHolder.ss loops through the persons and displays them. The PersonPage.php can’t be root, I don’t want it to be visited as separate url so I don’t have any need for a PersonPage.ss file and I didn’t create it under Layout. So there is no PersonPage.ss.

Now when I visit a PersonPage directly with a url (I can see in backend), I can still access the PersonPage seperate what only displays the Title of the page, because there is no template.

Is there a way to redirect to 404 when a page template doesn’t exists?

It sounds like your Person class should extend from DataObject instead of Page. You can then create a has_many relationship from PersonHolder to Person and create and manage People on your PersonHolder pages with a GridField. You can then loop through a DataList of those people in your PersonHolder.ss template.

Okay, I followed the guide and it is working fine, but when I add the following code, I’m getting an Error.

private static $summary_fields = [
        'Photo' => '',
        'Title' => 'Title of region',
        'Description' => 'Short description'

I found this issue and fixed it by using Photo.Title.

Glad you fixed it! If your question is solved you can mark it as such by ticking the checkbox on a reply. That lets other forum members know you don’t need help with this issue anymore.
