Can I get more documentation on how to implement templates properly. So far i
managed to make a custom template (.ss file) and .php that extends SiteTree and

Is there a way to add this class to the DB via some action from Admin interface?

It's goot that this script exists...Maulaly changing stuff is not fun when adding more templates (well is not that hard either :))

I think it should be available somewhere in Admin interface...
