Hi Staff,
I'm a very simple web developer and I wanna start to customize this CMS.
I have a just stupid questione:

If I open to a file, for exampe "" I find to the code:
<% control RelatedPages %>
<a href="$Link">$Title</a><br />
<% end_control %>

I'd like adding a new "variable", for example $Image just for show the images and not only the title and link :)
But in which file it's possible add this variable?
I used another Framework in my small past, but this FW... it's very difficult :(

Maybe my question is a very stupid question... but I don't understand :(

Thanks you at all.

The best thing you can do to get to know SilverStripe is to follow the tutorials. I think you're using SilverStrope 2.4? In that case start here:

If you're just starting, and you're thinking of building a new site, I'd go for SilverStripe 3.0, or even 3.1, that will be stable soon. Select your silverStripe version in the top bar of the docs site :)
