Hi there,

Been working with SS for a couple of days now and I'm getting on fine, but despite reading the tutorial I don't quite understand whats *happening* on the template code pages (where you create the page class etc):

* Defines the Page(NoFlash) page type

class PageNoFlash extends Page {
static $db = array(
static $has_one = array(


class PageNoFlash_Controller extends Page_Controller {


Don't get me wrong, I've created a few of these pages and added int he basics such as an icon etc, but I don't like plodding along using it without fully understanding what the existing code is doing and what is actually happening... can anyone explain it in dummy terms please?!?! Thanks! L

Hi Linsey,

this is a bit hard to explain, you question is a bit unspecific. What do you already know about OOP and ORM?
