i'm very new to silverstripe. but i already fell in love with it. the only thing that bothers me is the html-editor. i'm used to a modular page-content as seen in typo3, redaxo and contao.
for example a page in a redaxo-cms is like a folder and you fill it with different modules: headlines, text, wysiwyg, gallery, forms etc. at first it looks annoying, because most of the time all you need is a headline and some text and that's also possible with a html-editor. (anyway i prefer the modules, because with these i can restrict my user to a produce clean content, so no blinking text for them (i've already seen you can strip away functions from the html-editor in silverstripe))
but i can not imagine how to solve this example in a easy way with silverstripe:
there is a databse with some objects in it, and you want to embedd a list of particular objects (picture/text/number) in your text (<p>text</p><ul><li>obj 1 html</li><li>obj 2 html</li></ul><p>text</p>). multiple pages will refer to one object, if this object will change, you only have to change it once.
how do you solve this problem without content-modules?
is there a easy way to make the cms user choose from a list with objects, and not writing ids in the html-editor?
i've already thought about using silverstripe pages as container for other page-like objects with very minimal function (headline, text, gallery, objects), so the container page renders it's children, but this feels like a hack and i imagine a very ugly page-tree.
thanks a lot for your input!
