Hi,

I'm trying to extend ImageGalleryPage to make my own page type, basically just adding a couple of fields.
Nothing fancy so far, the problem however seems to arise when I try to create a template specific to the newly created page type.
For some reason it's not picking it up...

mysite/code/SplashPage.php

<?php
class SplashPage extends ImageGalleryPage {
}

class SplashPage_Controller extends ImageGalleryPage_Controller {
   
}
?>


mysite/templates/Layout/SplashPage.ss

<h1>blaat</h1>

Did a /dev/build/ after adding above files, created a page with the newly created SplashPage type.
However when i view the page it's using Page.ss for some reason...

I also tried above code but then with extending Page instead of ImageGalleryPage and that did work as intended.
So.... any thoughts?
Appreciate it!

You need to create SplashPage_album.ss, too.
