This is my first, ever, post in these forums. (- So be gentle with me.) :o)
I've been trying to setup SilverStripe and have spent about 2 full days now Googling, reading forums and trial-and-erroring my way along. - I decided it was finally time to ask somebody who knews the answer to my question... :o)
I'm using a basic SilverStripe installation with PixelGreen theme (including a righthand sidebar, that came with the theme).
I'm building a VERY basic site, that needs this function:
I need to the site to show a 'quote'. The quotes are plain-text comments basically something like this:
"This is quote number 1 - By number one", and
"This is quote number 2 - By number two", and
"This is quote number 3 - By number three" - You get the idea. :o)
- I need them to show up in random order, one at a time, in the righthandside-sidebar.
- Also, i need all of them listed on a single page.
What i've done / tried:
I tried using the RandomContentWidget extention, which handles the quote-entries as child-pages. This works rather fine! - Thus, i can't get them displayed in the sidebar the single-page-display works great. I've read every written line in the readme, and Googled the problem thoroughly, still without a solution.
I have 10 years of experience in webdesign but i'm mint-new at SilverStripe, so if i may ask, please be very specific about details and files in your response. :o)
I think i need a very basic solution - either a work-around for the RandomContentWidget to also display in the sidebar, - or another easier solution entirely.
Looking forward to hopefully solving this issue..! :o)
