I'm confused...

In the [url=http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=tutorial:1-building-a-basic-site/]SilverStripe template basic theme tutorial[/url], we are told to change the behavior of the page that we would like to be homepage to use the HomePage.ss template through the drop-down list. However I only have three items on the list for my theme, none of which says 'HomePage' -- is it just me or what's going on? Can anybody help here?

The tutorial says: "To illustrate how we do this, we will create a new template for the homepage."

You will have to create it yourself and then flush the database etc. It is all explained in there.

Thanks for your response Yurigoul - got me looking things over again more carefully. Have added the HomePage.php file to mysite/code. However when I click the link [url=http://localhost/dev/build?flush=1]http://localhost/dev/build?flush=1[/url] I get a 404 page! My development address for my site is http://localhost/Sites/SilverStripe/?flush=1, so I'm wondering if this is a factor? Do you have any further pointers?

Your URL would then be : http://localhost/Sites/SilverStripe/dev/build?flush=1

Always append the /dev/build to the URL of your SilverStripe install.

Hi!

Have you created a HomePage page type as explained in the tutorial and assigned it to your Home Page?

Also, don’t put HomePage.ss in \templates.

Hope it helps,
Juan
