README

This module provides a base PageSlice class on which new slices can be extended. A PageContentSlice is included by default, this slice holds the parent's content.

Installation

To add page slices to your page simply include the PageSlicesExtension to your page.

Setting up default slices

Default slices are slices set up by the developer in the config that are installed on createion of a page or object after write. This module comes with some config setting by which default slices can be set up. For example:

Page:
  extensions:
    - Broarm\Silverstripe\PageSlices\PageSlicesExtension
  default_slices:
    - PageContentSlice
Broarm\Silverstripe\PageSlices\PageSlice:
  default_slices_exceptions:
    - Blog

With the above config all pages would get the PageContentSlice by default except for Blog pages.

The config stacks, so if you would like to add a banner slice to blog posts by default you could add the following to the config:

BlogPost:
  default_slices:
    - BannerSlice
    # By adding the content slice you can control the sort order
    # Otherwise stacked slices will be appended to the list
    - PageContentSlice

PageContentSlice template hierarchy

The Page content slices looks for it's template in a similar manner as the Page class. For example, a PageContentSlice added to a BlogPost would prefer the BlogPostContentSlice.ss template above the PageContentSlice.ss. It iterates trough the class hierarchy until it stumbles upon a usable template.

Note

The module is namespaced except for the PageContentSlice, this is because the GridFieldAddNewMultiClass does not support namespaced classes yet. For your own PageSlices take care to not namespace them (yet!).
