Win 7 64-bit
I am slowly getting to grips with how SS is laid out and have managed to add a new page type with an additional field into the CMS.... OK so far.
Now, I would like to be able to choose a sidebar for a page, from a list of sidebars that have been created in the CMS.
My thoughts are:
Create a SideBarPage page type, hidden from the menu
Create a parent SideBarHolder page type, allowing children of SideBarPage, hidden from the menu
Create an additional field in the CMS with a drop-down list of any SideBarPage that exist
Have the layout automatically include the content from the chosen sidebar
The first two bits I can do! Well, I can create a drop-down list OK, but how can I link that to the SideBarHolder childen?
And then how do I use that in the layout?
Any pointers gratefully received
