Hi all,

I am new to the world of silverstripe and have the majority of the site setup, was very nice and easy to do.

I want to add a module / widget: I want to store a collection of banners, a banner will contain an image, a title, some content and a link. And they will be visible on the home page (only).

I have been trying to follow the tutorial, and appear to have failed dismally, as it didnt work, there were no errors, or anything to make it clear where I messed up. I have run the /dev/build/?flush=1, but still there is no button on the top for my banners / random links!

Anyone able to help me out either by knowing the code I want / having the source files from the above tutorial working, or some other way.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Hi snapper!

I've created a banner module some while ago with DataObjectManager. Basically, you start with something similar as what I just described in another answer.

Maybe you can show is what you have already done, so we can help you extending it.
