Hi folks,

I am still stuck in creating a new Page Type. I have created a HomePage.php and saved it in mysite/code.
I have http://localhost/silverstripe/index.php/dev/build?flush=1 where I click on build, thinking this is the way to re-build the database

When I open the CMS my new php is shown in the top of the screen with the CMS navigation underneath. it looks weird, and I can not save it nor publish it. When I try to look at it in a browser it calls on the allready made template

It drives me mad as I have been stuck for days so please please please, if anyone can help me, I will appreciate it big time

Thank you very much

* Defines the HomePage page type

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


class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {


in my php as suggested in the tutorial
