First of all congratulations for this lovely software. It's the best I came across so far.

I am very very new to Silverstripe (a few days only). Thanks a lot for your patience with me.

I would like to display a map using Openlayers within my Silverstripe. I have a static .html page containing the Openlayers code that correctly displays my map.

My question is : How do I wrap that file so that it all appears as if it is part of Silverstripe?

I read the documentation but still can not figure out how.

You'd use it in a template (.ss) file. See the wiki pages about templating:

So, for example, you can do:

<% require javascript(mysite/javascript/openlayers.js %>
<% require javascript(mysite/javascript/mappage.js %>
<div id='map'></div>

where mappage.js is all your openlayers scripts for that page.

Thanks for the fast reply, Hamish. I will look into that.
