Hi Silverstripers

Widgets are a fantastic idea, but in the documentation they are listed as if the widgets were part of the blog module perse. In the documentation, I have added a section "how to add widgets to other pages": http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=widgets#adding_widgets_to_other_pages

What is the philosophy on widgets - should all loaded widgets be available to all pages - or should widgets only be available to blog holders or ....?

For me, I would like to see the following:

Class MyPage extends Page {

static include_widgets = Array(
"mywidget1",
"mywidget2",
}
}

Cheers

Hi Thanks for this!

I was looking for a solution to add widgets to normal pages other than Blog!

Can you please tell me which file iam suppose to change "class Page extends SiteTree {}"?

Cheers,

class Page extends SiteTree {}

that would be the Page.php file in your code. Each class has its own File and all the code for your site is located within mysite/code
