hey guys,

Just a quick question, is there any snippet module in the Silverstripe CMS?. What i mean is that i need to be able to control text all over the layout, such as the copyright notice etc.

Anyone using some method it would like to share, or is this even available already?..

Thank you...

You can easily do this without a module, just make some extra dbfields, make a cmsfield for it, and use the variable in the template. so something like

static $db = array(

"FooterText " => "Text"

and in the getCMSFields method:

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Footer", new TextareaField("FooterText", "Set your FooterText here", 4));

you can then use the $FooterText variable in your template.
