I'm new to SilverStripe and I was wondering if someone could give me a little guidance with something I need to achieve. On our new website, we have a sidebar that contains our site navigation. Then under this is just a lot of wasted whitespace. So the plan is to fill this area with little sections of content: customer testimonials, featured products etc. But I'm not too sure how I would define these sections.
I could put them into the templates but then to alter any of the text etc. you would need SilverStripe & HTML knowledge to be able to find the files and change them correctly. I know I can add extra content areas to each page within my CMS but this way wouldn't I have to have the same customer testimonials again & again?
So basically, I need some way of being able to author little blocks of HTML content that are then included into a larger page, preferrably randomly (so you don't always get the same testimonial). Anyone got any suggestions for me?
