I am new to silverstripe,
just downloaded, went through a tutorial and setup my first silverstripe site, and I really like the simplicity of silverstripe
what I am wondering is:
How do I setup more than one editable textfield on a page? or is it possible? the tutorials (that I have seen) seem to only deal with one editable region.
my first layout/template has 3 columns and it would be great to have left nav and two editable separate textfields ,
Course you can have multiple textareas!. Each text area needs to be made a unique database fields and then a form field added to the CMS. In your case (sidebars) I think you would want to make them HTML Areas rather than plain text.
First step is add the fields to the database. Edit your $db array to something like this.. (tutorial 2 gives you an introduction to this)
