    How do i: Add a template in the Admin section Link to this post

    How can i add templates in the Admin section of Silverstripe?

    I looked and looked but i couldn't find it.

    How do you change templates because it always tries to reach blackcandy so replacing it in the theme file is not the option.

    i don't wanna make a new one just place an exsisting one.

    I skimmed through the program and through the documentation but nowhere is their a place for uploading templates or even modules, components and widgits.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    you are probably more used to Wordpress and other basic CMS systems like those. SilverStripe does things differently you have to define modules, templates and layouts in the filesystem and not via the CMS. The CMS is designed to be simple enough for the user to focus on content editing and everything like modules and template files are all defined in the project folder.

    To install themes etc you need to download the zip archive and extract it to certain locations in SS - eg themes should be unzipped to the themes/ folder.

    As pixel said, read the tutorials as this will be a helpful start into SilverStripe.
