Dear All,

I have created a beginners tutorial that leads to a simple theme that can be used to start off your own theme. I did this as I am new to SilverStripe and was overwhelmed by the tutorials on the help page. So I thought I could do it a bit simpler.

You can find it on my home page at http://www.mathias-wilhelm.de/silverstripe_tutorial/index.html

I hope, this is a valid contribution

Ciao, Mathias

Wow! It looks great!

Thank you so much, I will use this as a reference for building themes.
I am good with graphics and css, but fail to understand most PHP.

P.S. how did you make your anchor link animation? that's neat!

Thanks, happy I can help.
I have started to play now with the widgets and will extend the tutorial as I discover more

The animation are created with two tools: one is Xara 4.0, which is not so trivial, the other tool is Magix Slideshow Maker, which is free to download.

Ciao, Mathias
