    Re: XE.com Currency Convertor Link to this post

    Hi Craig,

    I think you could just edit the page you required the HTML in the CMS by clicking the button HTML (tooltip = Edit HTML Source) and insert directly there. Alternatively you could create a page type and insert it into the relevant ss template file... e.g.

    mysite/code/XEPage.php...

    <?php
    class XEPage extends Page {

    }

    class XE_PageController extends Page_Controller {

    }
    ?>

    mysite/templates/Layouts/XEPage.ss...

    <your HTML here>

    Hope this helps,

    Barry

    Re: XE.com Currency Convertor Link to this post

    Thanks Barry,

    I did try just inserting the html from the TinyMCE editor but no joy.
    I have also just tried your other suggestion. I get the apge type within the admin section but when creating the page on the site and trying to view it i get a page cannot be displayed.

    I put the html/php page in saphire/templates/layout but nothing.
    Am i missing something?
    Im starting to slightly get my way around things, widgets on the main page was the first hurdle! lol.

    Thanks again for all your help!

    Re: XE.com Currency Convertor Link to this post

    Hi Craig,

    The layout should be in {webroot}/mysite/templates/Layouts/XEPage.ss...

    (I just edited my previous post as I had mysite/templates/Layouts/XEPage.php in it - wrong!)

    Also do a dev/build?flush=1 after wards to pick up the new template - or follow this great advice http://www.ssbits.com/automatically-flush-when-in-dev-mode/ to make sure you never forget!

    yep and the sub folder Layouts

    silver stripe looks for the template in mysite/templates/... or in your theme/THEMENAME/templates/... (where ... is Include or Layouts) you can override any of the silver stripe ones from cms by creating it in mysite/templates/...
