am am very new to Silverstripe and i have already been working on a special project.
Well all is going well until i was working on building a custom application using php but silverstripe keeps giving me errors and also i do things like document.getElementById() in Javascript and it does not work.

can anyone help me out, even if its a function to show me how to go about it.

NOTE: am still an amateur in PHP so i dont write classes yet.

I think you'll get more answers if you're a bit more specific about your problem.

Doing document.getElementById() is javascript, I suppose it's for the frontend site?

This should work like any normal site, independent of Silverstripe.

Adding javascript is easy: just put your js file under mysite/javascript and reference it from within the head of your in themes/yourtheme/templates/.

(You could also use a requirements statement in your controller ( but I don't tend to do that.)
