I have an image that is used on the homepage (HomePage.php) as per the following code:

public static $has_one = array(
'Image1' => 'Image'

I then wish to use the same image throughout the site (Page.php)

I have tried using;

public function Image1(){
$obj = SiteTree::get_one('HomePage');
return $obj->Image1;

But it just gives me an error. I am also trying to do the same with Content1 which is an HTMLText field, but that throws the same error

Any ideas??

$obj = SiteTree::get_one('HomePage'); 

SiteTree::get_one is not a function you're looking for DataObject::get_one. If you have display errors on in your php.ini file and devmode on you should have got a pretty clear error message - if you just got a blank page you might want to turn both options on.

You can also do this in your template if you want.

<% control Page(home) %>
<% end_control %>
