I am trying get getting Widgets running but I am running in a couple of problems. I downloaded the children widget form the download section and copied the extracted folder in my root silverstripe folder. Then is rebuild the database. After that i added this to my NewsHolder.
You have called your database field 'SideBar' where as you use 'Sidebar' in your widget area field. They are case sensitive eg this new WidgetAreaEditor("Sidebar")); needs to be new WidgetAreaEditor("SideBar"));
Oh yes I am so dumm :( thx a lot. some times you don't see the forest cause of so mutch trees.
I have an other questions about the widgets. Is it possible to add a widget to a holderpage and the children inherits this widget ?? So that I just have to add a widget one time to affect all pages. Is this possible and how could i realize it.
Hello i have the same problem even if i made the said changes, rest look same like that, only if i try to save, it logs me out, comin back in and draggin the widget to the holder, it dissapears immediatly, can somebody give me an exact step by step installation guide for widgets? the one in the docs, is too difficult for me as not every step is explained and, as my language is german basiclly!
I posted already here http://www.silverstripe.com/website-authors-forum/flat/165915#post165915
but after posting I got firsts a "Bad widget class name given" error while draging the widget to the right into the "Widgets currently used" field and then, after "/?flush=1" it seemed to work. I could put in some content but again, I can see my widget only by adding simultaneous a "virtual page" to my site.
So what happens when I add a virtual page? Is there something being activated in a "virtualPageScript" or something why you can see this "virtual page 'widget' "?
