I am trying desperately to pull latest blogs into my navigation.ss include file. but so far with no success.

i have.

function LatestBlogPosts($num=5) {
$blogs = DataObject::get_one("BlogHolder");
return ($blogs) ? DataObject::get("BlogEntry", "ParentID = $blogs->ID", "Date DESC", "", $num) : false;
}

in my page.php

and

<% if ClassName = BlogHolder %>
blog

<% if LatestBlogPosts(4) %>

<% control LatestBlogPosts(4) %>

$Title

<% end_control %>

<% end_if %>

<% end_if %>

in navigation.ss

but not working.

can anyone advise where i am going wrong please.

thanks

Solves this by putting

static $allowed_children = array(
'BlogEntry'
);

function LatestBlogs($num=5) {
return DataObject::get("BlogEntry", "", "Date DESC", "", $num);
}

in top part of page.php

and

<% control LatestBlogs(3) %>

<a href="$Link">$MenuTitle</a>

<% end_control %>

in navigation.ss include file
