Hi folks

SilverStripe is my first CMS and I'm pretty new to php too, so forgive me if I'm doing something really obviously wrong!

I've been following the tutorials, but when I try to make a new page in /tutorial/code/ following the instructions (eg. HomePage.php or ArticlePage.php) it just won'tshow up in my CMS even after flushing it.

Anyone know what I could be doing wrong?

Thanks!!

Make sure:

The file name is exactly the same name as the class name.

e.g. HomePage.php should have this class structure:

class HomePage extends Page {

}

class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

}

Also, the file MUST be in the code directory of the project. If it isn't, it may not be picked up by the build script.

Ok, the files are in the C:\wamp\www\lighttpd\htdocs\tutorial\code directory, but the CMS itself seems to be in C:\wamp\www\lighttpd\sbin. Is that where the problem is?
The file name and class name are exactly the same.
Thank you for your help!

Yes, that would be a problem. They need to be in the same location, i.e. the CMS should be in the same root level directory as where your code is.

e.g.

htdocs/cms
htdocs/sapphire
htdocs/jsparty
htdocs/tutorial
htdocs/tutorial/code
htdocs/.htaccess

Yeah I thought that was a bit strange now that I've discovered that. Ok will move things around and see if I can get it going.
I keep reassuring myself that I thought HTML and CSS were tricky when I started learning them, so I'll get there with this too!
