In another CMS that I use it's possible to request the content of a field on a page. For example, if I had a quote of the day field on the homepage, in another template If I wanted that quote to show up as well I could just refer to the quote field of the homepage. What's the best way to handle this type of content re-use in SilverStripe?
Yes you can .... ;)
Have a look at this page :
You can do something like :
<% control Page('URLSegment') %> $YourField <% end_control %>
Hey thanks a lot for this valuable info! It looks like exactly what I need. I'll go study up on it.Have a good one!
<% control Page(home) %>
<img src="$BannerImage1.PageBanner.URL" alt="Header Image" />
<% end_control %>
In other page, you use Image data of "home" page.
