    Handle columns of content? Link to this post

    How easy is it to handle columns of content which can be updated easily in the admin?

    As far as I can see (beginner to this CMS) you can only add/edit to one column i.e. what is within the layout.ss.

    It's very customizable, probably one of the best of any CMS.

    I'd suggest starting with the tutorials - http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=tutorials

    The 2nd one will show how you can edit and extend the backend to deal with specific page types. Be sure to checkout the form types to see all the different ones you can add.

    You can easily setup a page which has more than one textfield in the backend for each column.

    Then in your page template, you can call each textarea by using a variable.

    If you run into any problems, or have more questions, feel free to post in here.

    Thanks, we will definatly have a look at that tutorial. The CMS is great... took a whole 5 minutes to customise into one of our templates... well actually a lot longer.. but now we see how it can easily be done in that time
