I create a homepage for a fire department.
They want to publish some information about there vehicles.
I created a new module folder named fwmodule.


class VehiclePage extends Page {
    static $db = array(
    static $has_one = array(

class VehicleController extends Page_Controller {
    public function init() {



<h1 class="title">Fahrzeug (Details)</h1>

<div class="vehicledetails">
<div class="photo">$Bild</div>
<div class="details">
        <tr><td class="left">Fahrgestell</td><td class="right">$Fahrgestell</td></tr>
        <tr><td class="left">Motorleistung</td><td class="right">$Motorleistung</td></tr>
        <tr><td class="left">Aufbau</td><td class="right">$Aufbau</td></tr>
        <tr><td class="left">Baujahr</td><td class="right">$Baujahr</td></tr>
        <tr><td class="left">Funkrufname</td><td class="right">$Funkrufname</td></tr>
        <tr><td class="left">Besatzung</td><td class="right">$Besatzung</td></tr>
<h2>Ausr&uuml;stung (besonders)</h2>

and an empty fwmodule/_config.php

sry for the names of the variables, im from germany^^

the page type is shown in the backend and can be created but when i open the page i get nothing but the class name of the pagetype

not even the design around it...

Your page controller must be called VehiclePage_Controller.

Also, I don't think you want the template in the /templates/ folder - you want it in the /templates/Layout folder so that it wraps your VehicalPage content in the normal page template.

Also, it is good practise to use full <?php tags instead of <?

Neither of these really explain the error though, but fix them up and see if it helps.

Works. I think this was because of the Layout folder cause i already tried VehiclePage_Controller in an earlier version but forgot to copy it when switching to a newer version of ss...
