Hi everyone,

I have a Portfolio page type (PortfolioPage.ss) that in one condition needs to render as a Home page (HomePage.ss). In my PortfolioPage.php controller, I have:

public function index() {
    return $this->renderWith(array('HomePage', 'Page'));
}

(condition will be added later)

I'm using the GET var 'debug_request' flag, and I can see this:

Debug (line 202 of SSViewer.php): Final template selections made: array (
'Layout' => '.../themes/oms/templates/Layout/HomePage.ss',
'main' => '../themes/oms/templates/Page.ss',
)

Which seems correct. However, in the rendering there's no data passed to HomePage.ss. Also, the $ClassName var is still 'PortfolioPage'.

This is in 2.4.7. Could anyone advise what the final step is to actually render the Portfolio page as Home page? I think I'm close.

Thanks!

Of course $ClassName is still portfolio as all you're doing is changing the 'view' not the data. If you wish to also override data then using customize.

public function index() {
return $this->customise(new ArrayData(array(
'ClassName' => 'HomePage'
)))->renderWith(array('HomePage', 'Page'));
}

Ah, I see! Thanks Willr! I had played with 'customise' earlier but couldn't quite get it. Thanks. Best, Wilson
