Hi there, I tryed this CMS and i'm really happy, but I have a few questions:

1) is it possible to insert in the pages PHP code? if yes is there any special tag for it?
2) i would like that my header in formed for different pictures. Is it possible to have random pics inside the css?

I really would appreciate it if someone could help me out with this questions.

Not sure about the php but I have a solution for your random pictures in css.

You could setup a tab on your home page which is called header and within that have a dataobject list of images. Then when you site loads it picks one of those images at random and loads that to a inline style in you site.

I have done something similar on a site I recently completed where the client is able to change he background image. I didn't use a list of images as they only need one background at time.

checkout the tutorial on relationships to work out how to get setup dataobjects with relation to a page.

As a tip you are going to want to use "new FileIFrameField" as the standard image upload won't work correctly in a popup. Well that has been my experience.

About the PHP. You cannot have PHP inside your content for obvious security, and coding, reasons.
