I am following the tutorial 2 today and stuck in this section "Adding date and author fields".
I created these two new fields and rebuild db, I can see them in database.
Then I created new "NEWS" section at the same level as "HOME", and change page type to "ArticalHolder".
After that created new "news Articalpage" under "NEWS", and change the page type to "ArticalPage".
But I did NOT see the new fields Date and Author in this news artical page.
I have the same problem. If I paste the code from ArticlePage.ss that differs from Page.ss ie.
<p>Posted on $Date.Nice by $Author</p>
into into the template Page.ss the required Date and author data appear in the pages as required. So the data is in the database. The ArticlePage.ss template is however being completely ignored. This is true for the ArticleHolder.ss template as well. The templates are in themes/simple/templates/layout as the tute requires, the code for the ArticleHolder.php and ArticlePage.php ,in mysite/code, as well as the templates is copied and pasted directly from the tute so how the hell can it be ignored? I did note that the class ArticlePage extends Page code in the tute is very poorly written out as there seems to be conflicting versions of the code given. Is this the source of the errors?
