Hi all,

I am working with the DOM and I have to say works pretty well. I have one issue though. How do I get the data from the CMS to display on the front end?

I followed the sample code form the DOM tutorial page. But once the data is placed and I view the page on the front end it does not display the template or any of the data.

I would appreciate the help thanks.

Here is my code. I am assuming that i have too make a template for the testimonials page, But since i am a noob I am not sure how.

I guess my question is how do I get the data to appear on the page?

Testimonial.php.....

<?php

class Testimonial extends DataObject
{
static $db = array (
'Date' => 'Date',
'Author' => 'Text',
'Quote' => 'HTMLText'
);

static $has_one = array (
'TestimonialPage' => 'TestimonialPage'
);

public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
{
return new FieldSet(
new CalendarDateField('Date'),
new TextField('Author'),
new TextareaField('Quote')
);
}
}
?>

TestimonialPage.php

<?php
class TestimonialPage extends Page
{
static $has_many = array (
'Testimonials' => 'Testimonial'
);

public function getCMSFields()
{
$f = parent::getCMSFields();
$f->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Testimonials", new DataObjectManager(
$this,
'Testimonials',
'Testimonial',
array('Date' => 'Date','Author'=>'Author','Quote' => 'Quote'),
'getCMSFields_forPopup'
));
return $f;
}

}
?>

I would encourage you to download the example code or read the tutorials on DOM to get a good introduction.
