    Insert blocks of content Link to this post

    HI all,

    I'm trying to understand how SilverStripe works, but I'm stuck.

    I created a template with Artisteer, and seems is working.

    Now, between the content (red), and menu(blue), I want to present 4 blocks feeded with content (in green). In second screenshot I show wht I want from my previous site.

    The problem, is I don't know how to show four blocks there, and how to feed it with content from SS pages.

    I hate comparisons, but I don't know how to explain me better. In Joomla for example, you have positions, and in this positions, you can insert contents, but, I can't find something similar here, and I don't understand how to do it.

    Thanks a lot.

    you can either hard code the blocks in the template and retrieve data from the controller using functions
    or you could make this using widgets and modifying how the "sidebar" is shown

    Hello,

    Starting from 4.0, Artisteer supports Export Plug-ins and it's possible now creating a plugin (free or commercial ) for Silverstripe.

    More details you can find here: http://www.artisteer.com/?p=dev

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Hi Bob,

    I've almost marked you as spam and removed you - as it looks like link building - can you explain how or why your link is useful please - explain in context of silverstripe how/why/what your solution is?
