    Equivalent for uploading content and views Link to this post

    Hi,

    I have build a website in Drupal. See www.vvwaspik.nl (it is Dutch). Now pages like in the menu's Programma (program), Standen (listings) and Uitslagen (Results of games) are uploaded records from csv files and published by a view (sort of queries on the database developed by using fields of the records). Getting to show the shirts of the teams means I use a relationship between the records of listings and records of shirts of teams.

    Now I searched for an equivalent in SilverStripe to do this, I really can not tell if there is one. As you can imagine typing all this records by hand is not what I want to do.

    Can anyone help me on this before I dive into SilverStripe. Please understand developing websites is not may daily work. But I managed to make the forementioned site with Drupal (thanks to lots of modules). I have some knowledge of html/css/sql/php.

    Thanks for willing to answer my questions.

    Before you get started you may wish to do the tutorials. In SIlverStripe terms you may decide to setup a custom DataObject for your results or set them up as Page's with custom fields. Importing the CSV data can be done through the CSV Bulk loader class (http://doc.silverstripe.org/framework/en/howto/csv-import).

    Well, concluding from your answer it seems what I want to do is possible in SilverStripe. I wiil take the tutorials and then set up an environment this autumn. If I succeed in doing what I want, and Silverstripe is indeed userfriendly to the developer and maintainer of a site I will switch from Drupal to Silverstripe.
