    Need fast help: cms->database->ss Link to this post

    Hello,

    i'm new here. Trying to make first steps on moving old site from mambo to silverstripe, but have no time at the moment going deep into analysing code, class structure, reading api.silverstripe.com (successfuly done tutorial), experimenting, since i need basic result in 3 days and do not want to make it wrong from the beginning.
    I have managed to make simple data editing, but stuck with templates and data->ss. Any help would be appreciated.

    situation:

    People:
    firstName, lastName, peopleGroupID, peopleProfessionID, biographyID...etc

    PeopleGroup:
    groupName

    peopleProfession:
    proffesion, description

    etc...

    I have successfuly managed to make editing of groups, proffesions, people tables in CMS. Added new tab with grid view, popup editing , selecting of groups, professions and bio in combos etc.

    Problems:
    1. CMS
    a) in grid view i can see now People table with
    firstName, lastName, peopleGroupID, peopleProfessionID, biographyID
    but i need to see:
    firstName, lastName, groupName, profession
    b) in other page (peopleOfSomeProfession extends PeoplePage) grid view i need to see only people with required profession:
    firstName, lastName, groupName
    2. Content
    menu structure works, but...:
    in menu i see:
    People
    profession1
    profession2
    etc..., but clicking on professionX i need to see:
    -------
    Pages
    1 2 3 4 5 >

    Name
    group
    profession
    link to biography
    link to biography pdf download (link is in biography table)
    --------------

    Please help me and i will write advanced tutorial/how-to on this topic, since i cannot find one that explains inner/outer joins, advanced multiple table data editing, multiple table output to ss.

    I am experienced devloper in java, c++, c#, delphi, databases/sql, but i have only basic skills with php.

    Do not need full code
    Directions where to look and simple how-to tips would be very good.
