I am trying to do add multiple editable regions to a template. I found this thread (http://silverstripe.org/archive/show/104369) explaining how to do it but it is in the archive and I did not understand it.

Does anyone have an example mysite/code/Page.php file so I can see how it works. I tried adding the code myself (with basically no PHP knowledge) and it did not work.

Any help would be great.

Hi bigbang

my humble opinion is that silverstripe is not for php beginners but if you are good at copy and paste try this (replace in mysite/page.php) , that's some code I used for multiple paragraph layout (3columns). As I say to my object experienced php developper who works with me on silverstripe, don't forget to flush your database after this (tutorial 1 )!!

<?php

class Page extends SiteTree {
	static $db = array(
	  'TitreContenu2' => 'Text',
	  'TitreLogo' => 'Text',
	  'ColonneGauche'=> 'HTMLText',
	  'ColonneMilieu'=> 'HTMLText',
	  'ColonneDroite'=> 'HTMLText',
	  'ParagrapheBas'=> 'HTMLText',	  	  	  
	);
	static $has_one = array( 'Photo1' => 'Image'   );	
	
   function getCMSFields() {
   $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
   //renommer les champs
  // $fields->renameField("Content", "SousTitre");
   
   //champs additionnels
    $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextField('TitreContenu2', 'Titre de Contenu (2e ligne)'), "MenuTitle");
   $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Entetes', new TextField('TitreLogo', 'Titre de Logo'));
   $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Entetes', new ImageField('Photo1', 'Photo1'));
 $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Paragraphes', new HTMLEditorField('ColonneGauche', 'Colonne de gauche'));
 $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Paragraphes', new HTMLEditorField('ColonneMilieu', 'Colonne du milieu'));
  $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Paragraphes', new HTMLEditorField('ColonneDroite', 'Colonne de droite'));
   $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Paragraphes', new HTMLEditorField('ParagrapheBas', 'Paragraphe de pied de page'));
	return $fields;
   }
}

class Page_Controller extends ContentController {
	function init() {
		parent::init();
		
		Requirements::themedCSS("layout");
		Requirements::themedCSS("typography");
		Requirements::themedCSS("form");
	}
}

?>

here you 'll find the associated 3 column layout with tests in case some columns are not visible


<table ><tr>
	<td  valign="top" width="<% if ColonneDroite %>260<% else %>390<% end_if %>" ><% if ColonneGauche %>		
<div id="ColonneGauche"	>$ColonneGauche</div>
<% end_if %></td>

<% if ColonneMilieu %>		
<td style="border-left:1px solid #0056B5;"  width="<% if ColonneDroite %>260<% else %>390<% end_if %>" valign="top">
<div id="ColonneMilieu"	>$ColonneMilieu</div></td>
<% end_if %>

</tr></table>

 

<% if ParagrapheBas %>
<div id="ParagrapheBas"> $ParagrapheBas</div>
<% end_if %>
</td>

<% if ColonneDroite %>
<td valign="top" style="border-left:1px solid #0056B5;" width="245"  >
<div id="ColonneDroite">$ColonneDroite</div>
</td>
<% end_if %>
</tr></table>

I have followed this and it did not work.

My page.php file looks like this:

<?php

class Page extends SiteTree {
static $db = array(
'testing'=> 'HTMLText'
);
static $has_one = array(
);
}

function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new HTMLEditorField('testing', 'testing'));

return $fields;
}

class Page_Controller extends ContentController {
function init() {
parent::init();

Requirements::themedCSS("layout");
Requirements::themedCSS("typography");
Requirements::themedCSS("form");
}
}

?>

I added $testing into the template and then flushed the database. The flush showed it added to the database (the green text).

I presumed this would add in another text field in the CMS but it didn't. Any ideas? have I missed something?

That looks correct. So that doesn't add a field to your Content tab underneath the content box?

Try $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Test', new HTMLEditorField('testing', 'testing')); and see if that creates a 'Test' tab in the content editor.

Ah i just used your code and it indeed doesn't work. This is because of a } that shouldnt be there (line 9) the getcmsfields function needs to be inside that brace.
