Hi there,

I'm new to Silverstripe but am loving it so far. I have created a widget for pulling in Social Media which is working great. But I am working on a site which has a twitter feed and a facebook feed. Both have different HTML and CSS.

So I was wondering if I can dictate which theme the Widget should use rather than just using the default one?

Hope that makes sense.

For more context here is the function I'm using the Page Controller to render the Twitter feed:

     public function TwitterStream() {
     	$widget = new SocialPulseWidget();
     	$widget->WidgetTitle = 'Our Tweets';
     	$widget->addFeed('twitter', array('name' => 'prbloke', 'links' => true));
var_dump($widget);die();
     	return $widget->renderWith('WidgetHolder');
     }

Actually! I figured out how to do it!

You can create a tempalte file in /themes/{theme_name}/templates/layout and call it in renderWith.

So for example: I have create a TwitterStream.ss file in the right folder and now I just use:

return $widget->renderWith('TwitterStream'); 

Win!
