Relatively new to Silverstripe, and loving it. Starting to try to add some more functional pages. And not much experience in php.

I'm making a site for a local football team. I have everything showing up in cms and on the web page. So I know my numbers are good from the CMS to the db to the web page.

I want to be able to add the scores for the quarters.

Here is how I have it set up in php page.

'Quarter01visitor' => 'Int',

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Box", new NumericField("Quarter01visitor", "1st Quarter - Visiting Team"));

How can I add up my Quarter01visitor, Quarter02visitor...etc... into a new variable to display on my page?
Am I on the right track?

Thanks for any help.

You should just have to use:


In your template.

Oops, just read your post again, sorry. You are probably best off using a custom method in your Page_Controller. Something like:

public function getQuarterTotal() {
return ($this-> Quarter01visitor + $this->Quarter02visitor);

Then add:


to your template
