Hi again....

I added this to my page.php

function NewsFeedSCH($arguments,$content = null,$parser = null) {
		// [NewsFeed id="Testimonials" num=2][/NewsFeed]
		if (!$arguments['id']) {
		$data = DataObject::get($arguments['id'], "", "", "", $arguments['num']); //Get Pages with ID Type
		$template = new SSViewer('NewsFeed');
		return $template->process(new ArrayData($data));	

and the file:

<% control getSomething %> 
	<div class="item">
		<div class="quote">“</div>
		<div class="blurb">$Content</div>
		<div class="title">$Title</div>
<% end_control %>

How do I register the $data variable so that I can loop through it in my template file since it is being called on the fly

The news shortcode should look something like this: [NewsFeed id="Testimonials" num=2]

I already have my shorcode parser in my _config.php file. I know that works.

Thanks Again!

try this:

return $template->process(new ArrayData(array('Objects' => $data)));

Then you can control 'Objects' in the template.
