Hi Marshall/Josh Thanks for the info. I've installed Page Factory and Page Parts and I agree, very useful functionality.
Unfortunately I get an error when I try and output the date held in my start_page part using the <r:date for="start_date" /> tag. I can output the date just fine if I use <r:content part="start_date"/> , obviously the date is then unformatted: StandardTags::TagError (Invalid value for 'for' attribute.): vendor/radiant/app/models/standard_tags.rb:597:in `tag:date' vendor/radiant/lib/radiant/taggable.rb:33:in `send' vendor/radiant/lib/radiant/taggable.rb:33:in `render_tag' vendor/radiant/app/models/page_context.rb:10:in `initialize' vendor/radiant/vendor/radius/lib/radius/context.rb:62:in `call' vendor/radiant/vendor/radius/lib/radius/context.rb:62:in `render_tag' vendor/radiant/vendor/radius/lib/radius/context.rb:93:in `stack' vendor/radiant/vendor/radius/lib/radius/context.rb:61:in `render_tag' vendor/radiant/app/models/page_context.rb:18:in `render_tag' vendor/radiant/vendor/radius/lib/radius/parser.rb:50:in `stack_up' vendor/radiant/vendor/radius/lib/radius/parse_tag.rb:12:in `call' vendor/radiant/vendor/radius/lib/radius/parse_tag.rb:12:in `to_s' vendor/radiant/vendor/radius/lib/radius/parser.rb:54:in `stack_up' vendor/radiant/vendor/radius/lib/radius/tag_binding.rb:33:in `call' vendor/radiant/vendor/radius/lib/radius/tag_binding.rb:33:in `expand' vendor/extensions/page_parts/lib/page_parts/page_part_tags.rb:65:in `tag:if_later' I installed Page Parts with script/extension install and I'm on 0.9RC2. Any ideas out there? Josh?
