Hi Everyone, im totally new to SilverStripe but already impressed about it. I really starting to loving this CMS, still im a totally newbie to this platform, i read the first 2 Tutorials, and made some custom Templates, but i have an simple problem, i want to have to different Navigations on one Page, NOT A 2ND Level Navigation but let say to Groups of Navigation, on for the Header, and another one for Footer.
The Problem is i don't know how to Group the Pages in CMS or how to make two different Navigataion Groups..
What i mean, when i generalte an list navigation based on the tutorial, this is fine, but let's say i want the last 3 links appear in an plaece in footer.. i could make this static, but i want to learn the possibilities of silverstripe.
its messy but for a couple of sites I have done we needed a seperate footer menu (check out http://graphics.onslownet.school.nz for my example) so what I did in the cms is create a page called FooterMenu (might want to unselect 'ShowInMenus' and ShowInSearch as you dont want too many people actually going to this page :P) then adding children to that page of the Page Type 'Redirector'.
Then in the template you can control the children of that FooterMenu (I have cut out the extra HTML)
<% control ChildrenOf(FooterMenu) %>
<% end_control %>
