    Page property access in Controller Link to this post

    Hi guys,

    Okay, so, I've decided, to make life easy for the site admin, to default custom properties in a new page to match that of the home page. This way, the page doesn't look nasty if they've forgotten to add anything. This works great for single items, as I can just use

    <% if Property %>
    show
    <% else %>
    <% control Page(home) %>
    show
    <% end_if %>

    However, a problem arises if the property is an array, as I can't nest control statements, and using

    <% control Page(home).Property %>

    doesn't work. The question is, then; how can I use the property of some other page in a control statement in a template?

    Thanks,
    Lee
