    Multiple Themes For Widgets Link to this post

    Hi there,

    I'm new to Silverstripe but am loving it so far. I have created a widget for pulling in Social Media which is working great. But I am working on a site which has a twitter feed and a facebook feed. Both have different HTML and CSS.

    So I was wondering if I can dictate which theme the Widget should use rather than just using the default one?

    Hope that makes sense.

    [bold]Edit[/bold]

    For more context here is the function I'm using the Page Controller to render the Twitter feed:

    public function TwitterStream() {
       $widget = new SocialPulseWidget();
       $widget->WidgetTitle = 'Our Tweets';
       $widget->addFeed('twitter', array('name' => 'prbloke', 'links' => true));
    var_dump($widget);die();
       return $widget->renderWith('WidgetHolder');
    }

    Actually! I figured out how to do it!

    You can create a tempalte file in /themes/{theme_name}/templates/layout and call it in renderWith.

    So for example: I have create a TwitterStream.ss file in the right folder and now I just use:

    return $widget->renderWith('TwitterStream');

    Win!
