Hi, is it possible in silverstripe to create a specific data type with specific fields AND let it choose the template ? the way I do it currently is by extending the Page and PageController and associationg with ss files but I would like to create page and pagecontroller that can choose their template ?

If you extend Page you can use a specific template for that extension to it.

For example, MyCustomPage extends Page.

If you define then it will use that template.
