I have a portfolio section on my website. At the moment it is very simple: the 'resource' consist of a title, description, an image, and a URL, and they are all shown on the same page.

How would I go about creating a 'holder' page which displays only the titles and an image of all resources, but then when clicked on, goes to another page with just the details of that dataobject?

EDIT: found something in the tutorials which will hopefully help http://doc.silverstripe.org/tutorial:2-extending-a-basic-site

I'm not really getting it, I still think I need some help!

Firstly, can make a 'holder' page in the CMS which will hold all the dataobjects?

Secondly, how do I then make a separate page to display one selected dataobject when the link is clicked.

Thanks again.

Have you checked out the "code examples" sticky in this forum?

EDIT: Realised I was looking at the wrong example, nothing to see here!

Sorry, I'm still stuck. I've removed all the parts relating to groups in the Resources example you've made with ResourcesOverview, but how do I get the ResourcesOverview page to display? I can only select 'Resource Page' in the CMS and this shows every Resource.

I removed all this code, should I have kept some in?

	public function Resources()
	{
		$all_resources = new DataObjectSet();
		if($user = Member::currentUser()) {
			if($groups = Member::currentUser()->Groups()) {
				foreach($groups as $group) {
					if($r = $group->Resources("ResourcePageID = $this->ID AND Global = 0"))
						$all_resources->merge($r);
				}
			}
		}
		$global_resources = DataObject::get("Resource","ResourcePageID = $this->ID AND Global = 1");
		if($global_resources)
			$all_resources->merge($global_resources);
		$all_resources->removeDuplicates();
		return $all_resources;
	}

Thank you for your patience.

I think I'm going to instead use a Jquery plugin to load everything on one page and then hide and unhide elements, seems much simpler!
