    Intro for templates Link to this post

    Can I get more documentation on how to implement templates properly. So far i
    managed to make a custom template (.ss file) and .php that extends SiteTree and
    ContentController. Later i had to alter db to add this class properly to the sistem.
    Is there a way to add this class to the DB via some action from Admin interface?

    Visit (site-root)/db/build and your database will be automatically updated. This is one of the key features of the system, sorry for not documenting it better!

    I've added this page - http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=db-build - and put a link to it from the getting started page.

    Regarding templates, here's a fairly complete guide: http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=templates

    You'll also want to look at http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=built-in-page-controls

    It's goot that this script exists...Maulaly changing stuff is not fun when adding more templates (well is not that hard either )

    I think it should be available somewhere in Admin interface...
