Hi, I'm new to silverstripe. I need to finish a small setup for tomorrow and I'm having problems showing the ArticlePages in the homepage . I'm following the article :
exactly like it's there.
I checked and the site is reading my HomePage.php from code and the and Article related pages (I can create them and see them in the Article (News) section).
I also tried just echoing a value from the HomePage.php but still blank.
The code follows:
<% control LatestNews %>
<li class="newsDateTitle"><a href="$Link" title="Read more on &quot;{$Title}&quot;">$Title</a></li>
<li class="newsDateTitle">$Date.Nice</li>
<li class="newsSummary">$Content.FirstParagraph<a href="$Link" title="Read more on &quot;{$Title}&quot;">Read more &gt;&gt;</a></li>
<% end_control %>

class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

function LatestNews($num=2) {
$news = DataObject::get_one("ArticleHolder");
return ($news) ? DataObject::get("ArticlePage", "ParentID = $news->ID", "Date DESC", "", $num) : false;

does the php error log contain anything useful?

Otherwise I would just strip the PHP down to see what its failing by removing things like the ParentID= bit then the sort or try just a return DataObject::get("ArticlePage");
