extends relation [message #37199] Wed, 08 August 2007 18:00 Go to next message

I am unable to get the extends relation to work as I understand it
should. I have role B extending role A. Text in the Brief Description
filed of B is published but not none from A. If B has no text in a field
then text from A is published. I expected the text from A to be
published followed by the text from B.

Have I misunderstood the intent? Certainly if I access the page for A
via the link on B's page, all of A's text is there but I expected the
text from A to be on the same page as B.

Hello John.
Extends completely overrides a fields if the extender provides a new value.
It does not append. Appending text is the behavior of contributes.
