Hello SilverStripe Community,

I've got a problem with including a Layout-Template using the $Layout Tag. Actually it works well with any other Page (or PageType) I got, so it's hard to explain what the problem really is. What I did is, I wrote a standard Template calles "" which has the $Layout Tag in there (plus a Header and a Footer) and I wrote another Template (in the Layout/ Subfolder) which just lists some DataObjects. Anyway, when I open the Page in my browser it just shows me the Layout subtemplate without the surrounding Layout out of the standard "". I don't really get that since Silverstripe should include the Layout Page not until the rest of the Main-Template is written (or at least the stuff before the $Layout Tag, which is the Header for example in this case). I hope you understand what I'm trying to explain and are able to help me. Thanks in advance
