    Issues with static footer and editable content Link to this post

    Hi, I have been following an online tut over at ssbits on creating a Static Sidebar (in my case though it needs to be a footer) that can be edited in SS Admin CMS, basically it is to hold images, heres how i have gone about it (its also my first dive into dataobject_manager).

    firstly created StaticFooter.php

    <?php

    class StaticFooter extends Page
    {

    static $has_many = array (
    'Images' => 'ImageFooter'
    );
    public static $db = array(
    );
    public static $has_one = array(
    );

    public function getCMSFields()
    {
    $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
    $managerfooter = new ImageDataObjectManager(
    $this, // Controller
    'Images', // Source name
    'ImageFooter', // Source class
    'Attachment', // Name on DataObject
    array(
    'Title' => 'Title',
    'Caption' => 'Caption'
    ),
    'getCMSFields_forPopup'
    );
    $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.FooterGallery",$managerfooter);
    return $fields;
    }

    static $allowed_children = array("none");

    }

    class StaticFooter_Controller extends Page_Controller {
    }

    now my class:

    <?php

    class ImageFooter extends DataObject
    {
    static $db = array (
    'Title' => 'Text',
    'Caption' => 'Text'
    );

    static $has_one = array (
    'Attachment' => 'Image',
    'StaticFooter' => 'StaticFooter'
    );

    public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
    {
    return new FieldSet(
    new TextField('Title'),
    new TextareaField('Caption'),
    new FileIFrameField('Attachment')
    );
    }
    }

    footer.ss

    <div class="clear"></div><!-- / clear -->

    </div><!-- / content -->

    <div id="footer">
    $Footerhp

    <div style="margin:0px 0px 0px 35px; text-align:center;">

    <% include StaticFooter %>

    <div class="clear"></div>
    </div>

    </div><!-- / footer -->

    </div><!-- / wrapper -->

    </body>
    </html>

    and now finally StaticFooter.ss

    <% control GetStaticFooter %>
    <% control Images%>
    <div class="fimages" style="float:left; margin-left:10px;">
    <p style="color:#ffffff; font-size:0.7em"><strong>$Title</strong></p>
    $Caption
    $Attachment.SetRatioSize(133, 100)
    </div>

    <% end_control %>
    <% end_control %>


    Mostly all is working good, fields are there in Admin CMS etc, i can create the footer and add the images, no problem, however when im rendering the page to view im getting this error Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}' in /home/wwwkevin/public_html/silverstripe-cache/.cache.themes.flyscreens.templates.GalleryPage.ss on line 246

    try as i might i cant pin it down (now 6 hours and i've gone bald, aged rapidly and nearly done a packet of cigarettes,not foaming at the mouth yet so theres still hope.)

    im thinking the fault is in StaticFooter.ss or footer.ss as when i dont include footer.ss i dont get the error, is anybody out there with an experienced eye who wouldnt mind casting it over the code and point me in the right direction?

    regards
    Martin

    edit: am i supposed to be able to delete my own posts?... i just went to edit this post (in its former state, and hit delete by mistake. oops!

    you my friend are an absolute hero, a silly noob error like that corrected as you kindly pointed out and now all is well, as for me well i have learnt a lesson on this one and that is not to edit files directly on my server using notepad, next time connecting notepad++ so i can have a little bit of syntax highling..

    kind regards
    Martin
