Hi guys,

I would like to include an agenda that should be displayed on each page. This agenda should be editable in the CMS. I have tried multiple things. Creating a new page type (calendarPage.php and calendarPage.ss) and included that as <% include CalendarPage %> on page.ss, but this does not work. Also adding
<% loop $Children %> <% include CalendarPage %><% end_loop %> does not work. There is probably a very easy way. Hope that someone can help me with thos.

Thank you!

Wesley

If you're trying to include content from a single page onto multiple pages the easiest way is
<% loop Page("<urlsegment>") %>
$Content
<% end_loop %>
Using $Content or whatever part of the page you're after.

Thank you for you reply. I tried your suggestion, but somehow it did not work out for me.

So now I added to page.php

function ShowCalendar(){
$get = DataObject::get_one('CalendarPage');
return new CalendarPage_Controller($get); }

and to the page.ss I added

<% control ShowCalendar %>
$Date_1
<% end_control %>

This also did the magic. Thanks again

Wesley
