Hey guys, I want to be able to limit a form to a specific page, without having to create a seperate page type I assume the best way is to use a control block that shows the form depending on what page the user is on.

I tried
<% if InSection("formpage") %>
      $someForm
<% end_if %>

but I get a parse error complaining about a missing } in the tmp file.

Its not the code in the controller that the parse error is complaining about I have checked that.

You can do an if statement based on the "Page Name" field like this:

<% if Title = Home %>
WELCOME HOME! :)
<% end_if %>

That syntax is explained here under "If blocks": http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=templates#template_syntax

Hope this helps,

Elijah

You shouldn't have quotes around formpage in the insection bit

<% if InSection(formpage) %>
