Currently using SilverStripe to create a little neat and tidy website for a client. Implementing the design into SilverStripe went really well and to be honest, I'am actually really suprised at how quickly I was able to implement the typical editable areas and an imagegallery.
The only thing I'am struggling with at the moment is displaying content from two different page types in one page holder.
I have a "Homepage Holder" with three CMS editable content areas. The first paragraph of the "About Us" page with a read more link, a list of the most recent testimonials (5) and some contact details.
The structure looks something like this:
-[ Homepage (Holder displaying "About Us" excert and latest testimonials)
--[ About Us
--[ Testimonials (Holder displaying all testimonials)
----[ Bob Smiths Testimonial
----[ John Blacks Testimonial
(Sorry about the crap diagram)
Now, I have tried a bending the news tutorial to my needs but I must be missing something because when it comes to displaying the contents of say the "About Us" page on the "Homepage Holder" I get nothing.
Can any of you guys think of any tutorials or similar examples out there of what I'am trying to accomplish here? Or am I going about it in a totally unconventional way and should try something a little different?
Any help much appreciated,
