I have included a footer field in a HomePage page type. I require the information from this field to be included in the footer of all the page types, ie Page.ss, Article.ss etc. to ensure the user doesnt have to copy and paste the information. I know this is possible but I have forgotten how, any ideas?? I just need pointing in the right direction..
I think the best way to add general footer content is by using the SiteConfig (the general site settings). Say if you add a FooterText field to SiteConfig, you can then access that from your Page template using $SiteConfig.FooterText
This is for version 3.0: http://doc.silverstripe.org/framework/en/reference/siteconfig
