Okay I have two questions to ask -

First and foremost, I followed the second tutorial, extending a basic site, and at the bottom it talks about adding a "Staff" section with an associated image for each page. I've followed this tutorial and inserted the $Photo variable into my template/theme. However, if there isn't a photo that is defined when creating that page, the $Photo variable prints:

"<img src="/build/assets/" alt="" />", which results in a broken link. I'd like to prevent this, what's the best way?

Also, my second question, if I want to change the layout for the Lost Password and Log in pages what do I do? Do i create, for example, a and a in my Layout folder?

You should be able to use the "if" construct in the templates, which is mentioned in the tutorials?

Yes if what though? doing <% if $Photo %> translates to:

<% if <img src="/build/assets/" alt="" /> %>
Which results in an error.

You don't need the $ - it's <% if Photo %>
