I want to use a special template named "ForumHolderFeed.ss" if the get paramager ?feed=1 is passed.
For example, this should be rendered with ForumHolderFeed.ss:
I tried modifying ForumHolder.php, as shown below however that does not render the data in my template.
This is usually done using actions, so
http://example.com/forums/feed would use the ForumHolder_feed.ss template file.
Getting it to consistently use ForumHolderFeed.ss for a specific get switch takes a lot more effort that most people realise. You can get it working in some cases by adding the check to an index() method, and returning $this->renderWith('ForumHolderFeed.ss'), though that won't work as soon as someone tries it on an action.
Thanks, simon_w for your reply.
How can I do this with an action? Do you have some sample code I could use or a link to documentation?
The only thing you may need to do is add the action to the $allowed_actions array. SilverStripe looks for ClassName_action.ss first when deciding which template to use.
