Having the same issue, However let me give a few details
I have GoDaddy Hosting, Using SilverStripe 2.3.4
I have already tried the External Content module however it requires the use of 2.4.0 and my understanding is that the newest stable is 2.3.4 and well i prefer to keep with the stable release...
So Here is what I'm Trying to do...
I use a program on my home computer to generate some stats for a hobby of mine, called Geocaching, and I have it export these stats into a bunch of files, some of these can be quite huge, and takes a while to open copy and paste into the pages on my site.
I would prefer an easier more automatic solution, I have wrote a simple Utility that will gather the files on my computer and Send them to the server via FTP, I would like to take these files and have them displayed in the SS site that my visitors see using the same theme as my SS site :)
here is a sample of the file that needs including http://pirate.theanaheimpirates.com/gcstats/Crew-.txt.htm
Mind you I can have anything I need put into that file, meaning if i need to add some "code" or "tag" to it I can, currently it is an HTML fragment, as that is what i copy and paste into the page in the CMS.
I also have one file that will not save in the CMS so i cant make it on my site, so I am hoping that by including it I can make it available on my site... http://pirate.theanaheimpirates.com/gcstats/stats2.html
Any help on getting this to work would be great
