Hi (again) all. I'm having a really hard time trying to find what I'm looking for on the silverstripe documentation.

All I'm looking for is how to get a value from the silverstripe database as I would like to display content from another page on the home page.

If the value I'm looking for was in the 'SiteTree' table on the content column where ID=1.

How would I run the query? is it using dataobject::get()? I cant find any documentation on it for the syntax.

Thanks in advance.

Yes DataObject::get is the most common way to get info from the database... here is the doc http://api.silverstripe.org/trunk/sapphire/model/DataObject.html#methodget

Although SS are in the process of moving all the docs at the moment so I don't know how long the link will be valid for!

I'm often sceptical when people say they cannot find help... I click Help in the menu above, click documentation and then search "DataObject" or select something from the menu - like DataModel - http://doc.silverstripe.org/sapphire/en/topics/datamodel

Thanks for the reply swaiba. I've actually been trying to work my way through the documents you have supplied. I think its just my 'newbieness' as I'm having a hard time with them and didn't realise that they will infact give me the answer I'm looking for.
