I am currently setting up a site in Silverstripe. It works really well and I did not see any restrictions that would limit what I have in mind. Little changes like updating the Blog to get Rich Text Editor support was straightforward. A great system! Thank you!
I noticed that in the Blog Module the previous/next link does not work (links just to the home page). I don't have the source code in front of me right now, but in the template previous/next link was created with something like:
(see [url=http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=built-in-page-controls#properties_of_a_datafeed_itself_rather_than_one_of_its_items ]Built in Page Controls[/url])
I am sure this only needs a little tweak; but I am quite new to Silverstripe and the Silverstripe Framework. Other pagination (clicking on page numbers) works well. I will look into that tomorrow anyway, but if someone has a hint I would be grateful.
Also: whenever I try to start a new topic in the Silverstripe Forum and I am not logged in all I get is a blank window (i.e. the forum here on silverstripe.com, not in the CMS to download). A message or a redirect to a login/register page would be less confusing.
