Hi All,

Sorry if my naming is a bit inaccurate, I am terrible with names :s.

If I have a page with multiple actions (please correct me if these are not called actions, but something else), for example:

I know that I can create templates for "action1" and "action2" as files:

But where do I put my php code for those actions? Are these represented by methods in page_controller? Or do i need to do something else?

Sorry for the noob question :). I cant find anything about this in the documentation, so if anyone has a link, that would be great.

Hi Mo

You are right about the php-code and actions. Actions should be methods of the Controller class.
Maybe this provides some – albeit sparse – insight:

Yep, your right about sparse :).

That is what I was looking for though. I have been trying to find that for ages.

Does anyone know if there is any more detailed documentation on this?
