Hi - I have a problem that there must be a simple answer to. The problem is I have created an admin interface using ModelAdmin to create records and manage data. It's fab, does what I want it to do - GREAT!
I could have done a similar thing using pages and methods described in Tutorial 5 Relationship management. But that was not really the most efficient option for me. SO, now I have all this lovely data using the ModelAdmin interface it would be great to output it into some site pages so people can consume said data. I have followed the tutorials and know at a basic level how to create pages, custom page types etc - and yes the data relationship management tut makes sense but only takes you so far...
What I now need is a nudge to a resource that will help me translate the ModelAdmin data into pages. I have searched and searched the forum for solutions but all I have found is stuff that is years old and out of date - focusing on version 2 mostly.
Could anyone help point me in the right direction? Thanks! (I am sure the answer is blindingly obvious but I just cannot see it! )

This module might be of use if you want DataObjects to equate to pages. Otherwise you can just use the ORM/Data Model to call out these DataObjects via a Page_Controller method.

Thanks so much for your prompt response - I'll have a look at both options and make a decision on the best outcome. BTW - I'm very impressed with the workflow of SS - I've used a few CMSs in my time and this is right up there!

Had a look at the DataObject to Pages module and it trashed my install so have opted for the DataObject PageController method and roll my own.
As I suspected - after you mentioned the latter option I realised the answer was right there in front of me - thanks for the tip - a real help.
