I made 2 modules which you may found useful...

One is "WidgetsManager". It allow adding widgets to any page easily, and provide easy management. It allow create WidgetsAreas that are available to all the pages (so you don't have to configure it to every page). It also support using the page's parent WidgetsArea, or set unique widget list.

The second is "Embedded". It allow embed dynamic content in the page's main content, by providing keyword that will call PHP method.
This allow it easy to embed code, like google maps, or even other modules and widgets.
It include sample code that embed google maps simple by add in the page content:

$Embed(GoogleMap,-28.643387,153.612224,8)


Add marker is as simple by add:

$Embed(GoogleMapMarker,-28.643387,153.612224,Test GMap)


There is also sample code that embed the YouTube module by adding

$Embed(EmbeddedYoutubeWidget::video,http://www.youtube.com/v/2bI3IWs8_lQ&hl=en_US&fs=1&hd=1,SilverStripe video,200,200)

The modules attached to this post.

Hi roterl thanks for the very useful widget manager.

I just downloaded the widgets manager v0.2 and installed on SilverStripe v.2.3.4. Its working fine on the Admin side, added featured product widget sucessfully but after inserting $SidebarWidgets inside my template and ?flush, nothing is showing up on my frontpage.

I want to use the featured product widget to display featued product on my pages expecially my homepage.

Do i need to do anything special to get widget manager to work with featured product widget?

Will very much appreciate your help.

hi Chrisazuka
Just to make sure,
On the Admin side -
did you modify / create widget area on the "Widgets Manager" main tab? if so, on the page you want to show it, under the "Conent/Managed Widgets" tab - make sure the type is "Managed" and select under the "Managed Widgets" pull-down the one you need.

if you modify specific page using his "Managed Widgets" tab, make sure the the type is "self"

also, if you did this right, make sure the template is ok.
I tested the featured product widget with the "blackcandy" theme (which I modified a bit - http://ssorg.bigbird.silverstripe.com/widgets-2/show/274963?start=0#post275094) and it works.

Please tell me if you sill have troubles with it (or if it works and you happy :) )

Rotem.
