I have a page that has various additional fields set in addition to the main "Content" one. Also, it uses a different template.

How can I get my VirtualPage to use a different template from the standard (shouldn't it grab the template from the target page anyway?) and use the additional fields?

had the same problem, couldn't find a function for this so here is my workaround:

say 'ProjectHolder' has 'VirtualPage' children pointing to some 'ProjectPage'. every 'ProjectPage' has a field 'Date', aside from the content, i want to show on my 'ProjectHolder' page:

in ProjectHolder_Controller:

function projectPages() {
  $children = $this->Children();
  $return = new DataObjectSet();
  for ($i = 0; $i < $children->TotalItems(); $i++) {
    $virtualPage = DataObject::get_by_id("VirtualPage", $children->Current()->ID);
    $projectPage = DataObject::get_by_id("ProjectPage", $virtualPage->CopyContentFromID);
  return $return;	  


<% control projectPages %>
  Project Date: $Date
  Project Content: $Content
<% end_control %>
