Silverstripe elemental hides 'Content' field

Silverstripe Version:4.2.1

Bring back Content field:
I have installed GitHub - dnadesign/silverstripe-elemental: Create pages in SilverStripe using content blocks, which hides ‘Content’ field.
Is there an option to bring them back?

I am not sure what you trying to achieve? Use the build in ContentElement there you have a HTMLEditorField.

Or you can do something like

  public function getCMSFields()
        $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
        return $fields;

And the PageType you are adding it to needs a Content db field.

There’s some discussion around this here: Stop replacing the default Content field · Issue #410 · dnadesign/silverstripe-elemental · GitHub

The configurable option will be welcomed by me :slight_smile:


I recently upgraded silverstipe 3 to silverstripe 4. Now the client wants to to make some change ie add new section so I thought would be nice to install Elemental module, to mange those block in the section.

I have used ‘silverstripe-blocks’ by Shea Dawson, but that does not seem to work on new silverstripe4.

As suggested by Tim configurable option would be nice.
