Hi there,

I have difficulties changing the page type via Silverstripe. According to the tutorial I need to create an other php file, which I have done in Dreamwever and saved it in the same location as the defualt file page.ss. Nothings happens in the CMS after doing this despite the fact that I put in the code

<?php
/**
* Defines the HomePage page type
*/

class HomePage extends Page {
static $db = array(
);
static $has_one = array(
);

}

class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

}
?>

in the HTML file as suggested.

Can I not use Dreamweaver at all to create my own template for the CMS?

Hope some one can help me.

Thank you

Mia

The PHP file needs to be in the same directory as mysite/code/Page.php not mysite/templates/Page.ss.

Hi there,

Thanks for your feedback. While trying out your suggestion I have messed something up. When I try to access this link
http://localhost/silverstripe/index.php/admin/dev/build?flush=1

Warning: fopen(C:\Windows\TEMP\/silverstripe-cacheC--wamp-www-silverstripe/manifest-index) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Invalid argument in C:\wamp\www\silverstripe\sapphire\core\ManifestBuilder.php on line 112

Fatal error: Cannot write manifest file! Check permissions of C:\Windows\TEMP\/silverstripe-cacheC--wamp-www-silverstripe/manifest-index in C:\wamp\www\silverstripe\sapphire\core\ManifestBuilder.php on line 116

I can nor either access the admin anymore... huh?

Any suggestions in how to fix it

thank you very much
