For the next 2 weeks you can use the new documentation website and give us your feedback.

The Versioned class is a DataObject that adds versioning and staging capabilities to the objects.

Trapping the publication event

Sometimes, you'll want to do something whenever a particular kind of page is published. This example sends an email whenever a blog entry has been published.

class Page extends SiteTree {
  // ...
  function onAfterPublish() {
    mail("", "Blog published", "The blog has been published");
