    Different Content Region Link to this post

    I have this script in mysite/code/home.php

    * Defines the HomePage page type

    class Home extends Page {
    static $db = array (
    'Comingsoon' => Text
    function getCMSFields()
    $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
    $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new TextAreaField ('Comingsoon','Content'));
    return $fields;

    static $has_one = array(

    class Home_Controller extends Page_Controller {

    function LatestBlogEntry($num=3) {
    $blogpost = DataObject::get_one("BlogHolder");
    return ($blogpost) ? DataObject::get("BlogEntry", "", "Date DESC", "", $num) : false;

    What I am basically trying to do is have a different content region on my homepage what is editable in the CMS. I have called it Comingsoon. All I have done is home.php above and just added a $Comingsoon to my template. This isn't working, I dunno if I have missed a step or the code is just wrong. Please help. (Ignore the blog bit at the bottom)
    Thanks Ryan

    Should work... Did you /?flush=1 to refresh the template?
