Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can help.

I've downloaded silverstripe and putting together a simple CMS for a client (a good way of testing it). Currently I think it's really good, but I'm a little stuck at trying to create a multi-column layout for the home-page.

I have Page.css which holds the main theme, which is split into subtemplates /Layout/ Page.ss and HomePage.ss

I also have a mysite/code/HomePage.php - which is where I'm struggling. Getting that working was fine, but trying to add in a multi-column layout for home is being a bit of a pita.

In home, I currently have:

<?php
/**
* Defines the HomePage page type
*/

class HomePage extends Page {
static $db = array(
'ColumnOne' => 'HTMLText',
'ColumnTwo' => 'HTMLText'
);
static $has_one = array(
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.ColumnOne", new HTMLEditorField('ColumnOne','Column One Content'));
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.ColumnTwo", new HTMLEditorField('ColumnTwo','Column Two Content'));
);

}

class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

}
?>

But is giving the error:
Parse error: parse error, expecting `')'' in D:\clients\cogocreative\domains\dev.silverstripe\mysite\code\HomePage.php on line 12

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

You have got cms fields in your database schema. Your $has_one should actually be a getCMSFields()

// remove your $has_one

function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.ColumnOne", new HTMLEditorField('ColumnOne','Column One Content')); 
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.ColumnTwo", new HTMLEditorField('ColumnTwo','Column Two Content')); 
}

Still no luck :(

I've got this now

<?php
/**
* Defines the HomePage page type
*/

class HomePage extends Page {
static $db = array(
'ColumnOne' => 'HTMLText',
'ColumnTwo' => 'HTMLText'
);
function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.ColumnOne", new HTMLEditorField('ColumnOne','Column One Content'));
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.ColumnTwo", new HTMLEditorField('ColumnTwo','Column Two Content'));

}

class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

}
?>

woops I forgot to add the return $fields; to the function.

function getCMSFields() { 
$fields = parent::getCMSFields(); 
    $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.ColumnOne", new HTMLEditorField('ColumnOne','Column One Content')); 
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.ColumnTwo", new HTMLEditorField('ColumnTwo','Column Two Content'));
return $fields;
}

Lol, ok now I got

<?php
/**
* Defines the HomePage page type
*/

class HomePage extends Page {
static $db = array(
'ColumnOne' => 'HTMLText',
'ColumnTwo' => 'HTMLText'
);
function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.ColumnOne", new HTMLEditorField('ColumnOne','Column One Content'));
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.ColumnTwo", new HTMLEditorField('ColumnTwo','Column Two Content'));
return $fields;
}

class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

}
?>

And I'm getting:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CLASS, expecting T_FUNCTION in D:\clients\cogocreative\domains\dev.silverstripe\mysite\code\HomePage.php on line 18

I'm wondering if I've set-out /mysite/code/HomePage.php wrong or I'm missing something.

Would be good to get it live, then change the theme a little and release it here. The theme section seems to be lacking a little :)

Aren't you meant to autoload your controller?

I think your controller should be:

class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {
	public function init() {
		parent::init();
	}
}

Also, have you re-run /dev/build/ and flushed your homepage template?
