    First Steps Link to this post

    I'm trying SilverStripe, but I can not find any menu for the configurations/preferences: does not exist?
    How do I change the themes?
    As you set the default language?

    I have read, but is not served at all. The demo has many functions, the package I downloaded a lot less and it seems that we need to install them pick up and run the code every time: too complicated.

    This is because not every site needs every feature. The core software you download has the essentials - the core PHP framework, the CMS interface and a demo theme (blackcandy). The demo also has installs from our increasing range of modules which you can add to your site as necessary - http://open.silverstripe.com/browser/modules/ (you can find install instructions + more information on the modules on the documentation page).

    Ok, but I want to understand one thing in particular (unfortunately the guides not help me much, because I do not know good English): To install themes, modules and widgets, must pick up and run the code with manual changes? I understood correctly? Or you can install with automatic systems without having to manually change the code?

    PS: widgets work only with the blog module?

    > To install themes, modules and widgets, must pick up and run the code with manual changes?

    Generally:

    Widgets - just upload them to your website root and they should be ready to use.
    Modules - same as widgets, but you might need to modify some configuration variables.
    Themes - upload to your theme directory, then change the theme in your _config.php file.

    There is very little you need to modify to get most widgets/modules/themes working.

    > Or you can install with automatic systems without having to manually change the code?

    No. Sometimes the module will have CMS-enabled pieces to help configuration, but it is always a manual installation process.

    > widgets work only with the blog module?

    No - any page can have widgets. The blog moduled has them enabled already, but a 'widget area' can be added to any page with a little bit of code. See this page: http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=widgets
