For starters i would like to complement you guys on your great product! mind blowing indeed.
I have been trying to find how to change the splash screen on the admin panel when loading startup for my own splash screen and could not find any info.
Any help would be greatly appriciated.
The splash screen image is "cms/images/loading.gif". If you change that, it should change for you. Not sure if this breaks any guidelines or anything though...
You mean to create some kind of dashboard? I've done that. For starters, just edit the template /cms/templates/Includes/CMSMain_right.ss
I totally agree with you -- the default page in Silverstripe gives me a "what were they thinking" moment every time I log in. No calls to action, no overviews or summaries. It's just... empty.
By editing that template, however, I've been able to add links to most recently updated pages, assets, users, etc.. at least it's something.
UncleCheese, would you be open to posting the stats code for the dashboard setup? That sounds really useful!
Sure.. basically you want to do something like this..
<h3>Recent Page Updates</h3>
<% control RecentUpdates %>
<li>$LastEdited : $Title</li>
<% end_control %>
<% control RecentUploads %>
<li>$LastEdited : $Filename</li>
<% end_control %>
public function RecentUpdates()
return DataObject::get("SiteTree",null,"LastEdited DESC",null,10);
public function RecentUploads()
return DataObject::get("File",null,"LastEdited DESC",null,10);
You get the idea..
Whatever happened to the dashboard module/extension that was kicking around for a while?
I have been thinking about this a lot recently, glad to see I am not the only one :).
UncleCheese, is it possible to overwrite the CMSMain_right.ss in my code or themes folder?
I currently have CMS, Sapphire and Jsparty loaded into my projects via svn:externals, so I cant easilt hack up the code :s.
