I'm pretty new to SS, so forgive my early questions - and the fact that I probably should have posted this in "Extending and Hacking", but it's too late now. Unless a moderator can help me, please? :)
1. Is there a comment syntax in the template language? Am I able to wrap other SS template tags in comments, as I can do in PHP to disable a block of PHP&HTML?
<?php /* <?php foo() ; ?> */ ?>
2. The first SS extension I'd like to make is adding an edit view select element to each page, so you can choose a background graphic from a list of uploaded files. This will allow us to have a custom graphic for each content page without requiring the editor to "voodoo" the image into place (requiring correct styling and placement).
I'd appreciate any pointers on how to kick this off.
