Hello everyone, having some slight issues with my content being displayed. I've tried a few different methods on the API, to no avail.


ShortcodeParser::get('default')->register('Accordion', array('PageExtension', 'AccordionCall'));

This is fine, at least I think it is. It's firing with no issues. Here is my routine in my page extension class. The array was a blank I fed into process() just to get it to shutup (real technical right there).

Long story short, I want it to display my file. When I use getTemplateContent, it renders it as it's written. As in <% control Accordion %> and so on shows up.

public function AccordionCall() {
$customise = array();

$template = new SSViewer('Accordion');
$item = new ViewableData('Accordion');
return $template -> process($item);

Any help would be appreciated :)

public function Accordion(){

return $this-> owner -> renderWith('Accordion');


tada! If I want to load just a certain Holder, I use this

public function AccordionCall($arguments) {

try {
$arg = $arguments;
} catch (Exception $e) {
$arg = null;

//if there's no arguments, it will return everything

if ($arg == null) {
$controlMe = Controller::curr();
return $controlMe-> owner -> renderWith('AccordionAll', $arguments);
} else {
$arg = $arguments['name'];
$current = (DataObject::get_one('AccordionHolder',"AccordionName = '$arg'"));
$item = ($current) ? DataObject::get('Accordion', "ParentID = $current->ID", "", "") : false;
$item -> customise($current);
$controlMe = Controller::curr();
return $controlMe-> owner -> customise($current) -> renderWith('Accordion');



Hope this helps others...
