Here is a screenshot [1] with requests for the Latest Blog Posts

putting it here for reference in future posts :-)

Thanks again for the visual help, this really makes it easier to grasp
things quickly.

Basically, I'm wondering if you can:

1) Style the Latest Blog Posts widget like the Twitter widget

Sure - although I'm not sure about the colors of the Twitter widget itself.
you can play with the colors at the twitter page itself or use a
site like (paste the twitter generated code into the
HTML-section (top-left) and click run → result will be at the lower
right, change code in the HTML part, click run again → repeat until
you're happy, then save (or remember the colors yourself :-))
use as guidelines

What is fixed/not scrolled is the header part and the bottom part - do
you want that for the blog-widget area as well? I.e. non-scrolling
header, and non-scrolling bottom-part?

2) Change the title of the blog posts widget to "Latest Blog Posts"

Sure, that's no problem whatsoever :-) But the question is: What
blog/feed to poll?

For I used
- but maybe a aggregated feed would make more sense?

Similar for the twitter widget - it's currently a so-called "profile"
widget, i.e. doesn't perform a search for terms, but only lists tweets
from docufoundation.

3) Make those two widgets available on (I
inserted the code from the Welcome page of into the home page of but the widgets don't seem to work on, whereas they work fine on

Yes, that is because the automatically generated data is provided by
the controller of the corresponding page - and that doesn't exist yet
on (also the templates to render the data doesn't
exist yet. Silverstripe follows a MVC (Model View Controller) concept

The code needs minor cleanup before publishing :-))

Could you make any necessary changes and get them working?


Thanks if so. I ill have finished with all the pages before Friday
morning (CET time), so we could ask Florian to roll the site out on
Friday maybe...

Great news! - Thank you very much for your efforts!
