I'm a Silverstripe greenie... And it's confusing!

I'm working on an existing SS installation with custom theme. In the theme Layout files, I want to replicate the display from BlogHolder.ss in HomePage.ss. I go in to the SS files, copy the code from the first file to the second, but it doesn't work.

I can't work out from the code why this wouldn't work. Is there a Silverstripe idiosyncrasy that I'm not aware of?

Thanks!

Hi whitemop,

That would generally be the way to go, but the data the template displays, needs to be available to the template.
You are proberly trying to render some data from blogposts, and they are not available at the frontpage.
Perhaps you can wrap the code inside a <% control childrenOf(20) %> where "20" is the ID of your blogpage.

Try to paste the template code at http://www.sspaste.com/ and link it here.
