I have a list of content that I wish to add to various pages but not as a page. How do I set set up content holders that are not pages (ie minus the Meta Info, Navigation label etc) but is administrated in the ss admin interface?
Is there a tutorial or documentation about different page/content types?
Its a solution but it seems unlogical to have to hide it under a tab on a page. It would be awesome to be able to create a dataobject holder/object that appears in the site map on the left hand side of silverstripes admin but does not necessarily mean its a page.
I'll give your idea a go as it seems the only option at the moment for what I need.
Personally, I don't think it is any more logical to put these kind of things in the "sitetree" since they are not part of the actual navigation.
You are free to put these "extra" content items wherever you'd like to put them , you could even create a new "setup extra content" item in the main-menu of Silverstripe if you wanted to (next to CMS / Security / Newsletter etc. etc.).
