Can someone please point me in the right direction? I'm not sure if I forgot to do something or simply did something wrong, but I am only getting one content box in the text editor. The demo has a separate content box for each div in the ss file, but Silver Stripe is only displaying one box to input page content.

I guess I thought that all I had to do was put $Content between the divs on the ss page and it would automatically produce a new box in the cms for content to be added, but that didn't work. All it did was put the same content in each div. I did go through the tutorials, but I really do not remember anything that specifically addressed how to get different content into each div on a given page.

Any suggestions?

Now that is working at normal speed I've been able to do a proper search and it looks like this can be fixed by adding an htmleditorfield in the page's php. I knew it was probably something obvious...
