Hi, I asked a simple question on the forum over a day ago (can Silverstripe do this?). Got no answer. However, tried Silverstripe out, impressed, but lacking addons/Extras.
Main problems I see for potential user are
1..No management console for new themes or addons, no management console for anything period.
2..Despite simplicity, what should be so obvious, but not was how a menu item was added, moved etc.
3..To add a menu using Basic Help a new user was pointed to adding some code into the source, eg 'Open up themes/tutorial/templates/Page.ss, and insert the following code inside <div id=â€Mainâ€>: '
Open up???? open up with what - I assume you mean Notepad++ or similar, but that sort of ambiguous instruction level is not good.
EG for themes:
Downloading A Prebuilt Theme 'Unpack the contents of the zip file into the /themes directory in your SilverStripe installation. 2. Change to the theme by putting the following line in your ./mysite/_config.php'
Sure the above process is simple, but it should not be necessary IMHO.
