Hi -

I am following the simple tutorial on adding custom page types. When I add the ArticleHolder.php class to my code folder and then flush the database as specified, nothing happens, I still have only one page type to choose from in the drop down box in the CMS.
ArticleHolder inherits the template file from Page so there is no need for a new one (according to tutorial) but nothing seems to happen.

In the tutorial it says to put the file in tutorial/code and im putting into mytheme/code.

Is this correct?

In your config.php, if you have $project set to "tutorial" then it will use that folder. What do you mean nothing happens when you do a db/build? blank screen?

In _config.php, add Debug::send_errors_to('');

Hopefully you'll get some error reporting.

If it still doesn't work, please post your code.
