Thanks Banal, that worked and the /dev/build completed.

I can now access the CMS and start to set up the home page template (which will be different from the rest of the site).

I even found the "Home Page"in the drop down menu - YAYAYAY!

many many many thanks

When this landing / home page is completed, if you're interested, I will send the URL.

Have a restful and enjoyable weekend

Hi Roman, Banal (& everyone who had a look at our problems)

I just wanted to genuinely thank you all for your help. We have completed this stage of the project and
the site is live and now in the customers hands. I am not sure if I am allowed to post the finished
site URL here, but anyway, if you want to see, here it is:

The project involved creating a unique landing page template, a template for the rest of the web site, and
a changeable banner system to allow different banners to be used with specific pages. As you can see,
we also resolved the flash element in the home landing page (which was no problem).

We are going to bid on Silverstripe projects in future and hope we can build up a good reputation for
what we do.

best wishes and no doubt I will be back from time to time for more advice. I like the Twitter and also
forum addons, and will be discussing both these with our .eu customer
