Create a Blog Entry only with Code

Permalink
I want the composer output to be 100% in the PHP code (dont want to go to "page types" - "deafults" and than add att..blocks and the "composer block")

100% code its more easy for me to get the layout and CSS

The code is working (i add in the composer and see the change in the live php).
I KNOW HOW TO GET: Title, date, description, thumbnails.
For example the title in my code is
<h1>
   Page title is:
   <?php   $title = $c->getCollectionName();
      echo $title;
   ?>
</h1>

THE PROBLEM:
i dont know how to?
1) Get the topic list tree (for example "gadgets")
2) Get the by code //// Block TAB ---> Content
(the main text part of the blog) -
The problem is i get an error in the composer form:
"Unable to load block into composer. You must edit this content from within the context of the page.".
3)In general how to get:
- Content
- File
- Image
- Image Slider
What the Trick her? (i try to find this in the API)

Hi siton,

I do not recommend hard coding the Composer block output into your page templates. I am working under the assumption that hard coded block output is not cached. Without caching, this will make your pages much slower.

If you need more control over the layout, I would make a page template for the specific page type. This would allow you more control over the layout and CSS.

To do this:
- create a page type and a page template with the same handle
- set the page type to only use that template

What about get the topic node?......and tags.

I need to look at the API for this codes?

@siton

Those would be added to the page as blocks when you edit the defaults for that page template.

Here is an explanation of editing defaults for a page template:
