i want to make a second custom Blogentry page.

I will still be a blog entry but with some extra / other fields.

On the admin:
Same as is now but with the possibility to add some custom fields with a title like School and then a inputfield, etc etc

On the frontend:
On the blogentry page a small square on the top right of each blogenty with some additional information.

My question, how can i do this?

Does anyone have an idea about this?

How can i easily make this in the admin and show up on the front-end?

It would look similar like this:

A list
xxx: 11 - 22 - 33
xxx: ab - cb - ee
xxx: bb - -- - xx
xxx: yes
xxx: no

The list should always be of the same structure.

Create a new Page Class that inherits from the Blog-Page?
There you would add the required fields to the DB array and create the required form-elements in the getCMSFields method.
The look can be customized by creating a custom template for your new page...

All pretty basic stuff. Did you do the tutorials once? That should actually give you enough information to accomplish what you need.

I did the tutorial but that was a while ago :)

I will look into that, just needed that "startingpoint", THNX.
