umm, nope. that would be my problem then. let me make the class and see what happens.

**

I created a new class/page called ProductsPage, and now I'm getting this error:
FATAL ERROR: Object::__call() Method 'forTemplate' not found in class 'ProductsPage'
At line 199 in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/biomicro.com/sapphire/core/Object.php

maybe I'm missing something on the class stuff. After some good sleep I'll try again tomorrow.
Thanks for all your help guys.

alright, I've been playing around with the get_one and get functions and when I use DataObject::get("ProductsPage", "", ""); it returns all the products, just like it should. then when I use DataObject::get_one('ProductsPage', null, false, 'RAND()'); I get the error that its looking for Object::__call() Method 'forTemplate' yet, Method 'forTemplate' not found in class 'ProductsPage',256. I'm starting to grasp this more and more, but maybe I'm missing the function or class to display the one result I want.

and then again maybe I'm just smoking something.

forTemplate() usually means you're referencing an object in a template, but it doesn't know how to render it.

This could mean that you're doing something like $RandomObject - when it should be in specific calls to properties on that object such as $RandomObject.Title OR using <% control RandomObject %> to render variables in the scope of that object.

That was it. I put .Title behind it and it worked perfectly.

Thanks for all the help.
