As I said i'm a novice. I created these by looking at examples but i just know that they aren't communicating properly. I did create a widget that works great i'll attach it here for anyone who might use it it's for this software

But i'm completely stuck with this one. So any help at all would be fantastic

Thanks in advance

Hi Could someone please help with this i am now using jwplayer 6.5 and SS 2.3.7 and still have had no help/answer anything. I am simply trying to use jwplayer with SS 2.3.7. I will have to suggest another CMS if the support is so bad I have search the internet and this site and nothing really answer my question for my version of SilverStripe it's a shame because I really like SS and enjoy using it and learning about it. I know that this problem will not be present when we upgrade but that probably won't happen any time soon

Please help.
:-) Gem
