So I have created two page types for testing. One is a clone of CMS.File and one is my own (Just a regular page type this time around with my custom fields).
I am creating a place for my organization to store all our policies, so I need custom fields like Title, PolicyNumber, ApprovalDate, PolicyType and of course the file itself (I am only going to permit PDF's from being uploaded)
I can do all that with my own custom pagetype but users can't link to it from the wysiwyg editor on their pages.
I like the CMS.file page type because it does permit users to link to it from the wysiwyg editor, but when I add new custom fields, they seem to be ignored in the form tab. What's up with that? Also, I am trying to prevent Word Docs from being uploaded yet it seems to be ignoring my restrictions to only allow PDF in the Fields menu of page types.
So, what is so special about the CMS.File Page type? and why don't my fields become visible in it?
