I posted in template forum originaly but didn't get any response so thought maybe I should try. Hopefuly this helps someone or gives a possible idea to developers.


I tried to use

Director::addRules(80, array(
	'sitesettingsmodule/sitesettings.css' => 'SiteSettingsCSS',

in _config.php but received a 404 page not found error.

I was doing this to create a css page so that I can have a dynamic CSS page which I can control from the CMS. For example being able to change the background color from within the CMS.

i have used this method before to create XML pages, no tag pages, php pages and all to no problem. I had a look in the back end and couldn't see any where this was blocked. Anyone had any experience with this? it seens like it could be a bug, I don't see any security reasons as to why Silverstripe would block it but perhaps they didn't think to include it either.

Thanks very much for your help.

no ideas anyone? if this isn't built in functionality it really should be.
