1.  <dtml-with expr="CMF">

... CMF is just a ID of the "CMF SIte" product.  You can give any ID to a
"CMF Site"  i.e.  "BobsBigCMFsite"

The code would then be:
<dtml-with expr="BobsBigCMFsite">

Prerequisites:  I have the CMF 1.2 Product installed

2.  <dtml-var cmf_news>

"cmf_news" is another created name of a "DTML Method" I created.
I found the code in my default CMF Site at:
CMF SIte/portal_skins/generic/recent_news

note:  you may have to hack out/in any code you don't want in your
presentation layer.  I only removed the
<dtml-var standard_html_header> and <dtml-var standard_html_footer>

Copy this code (CMF SIte/portal_skins/generic/recent_news) to a DTML Method
at the root of your CMF Site.
Don't name it "recent_news"

3.  </dtml-with>  close the tag

4.  Here is my code from my front page (index_html)

<div align="center">
<dtml-var standard_html_header>
<dtml-var yihaw_toplevel>
<dtml-var standard_html_footer>

5.  <dtml-var yihaw_toplevel>

<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="5" cellpadding="5">
              <td width="100%">

My squishdot site articles pulled to my home page. madsquish and
articles_html are ID's I created.

              <dtml-with expr="madsquish">
              <dtml-var articles_html>

              <td width="100%" bgcolor="#D9D9D9">
              <font size="3"><hr size="5" noshade color="#000080"></font>
              <td width="100%" bgcolor="#D9D9D9">
              <font color="#000000" size="3">
              <td width="100%" bgcolor="#D9D9D9">
              <font size="3"><hr size="5" noshade color="#000080"></font>
              <td width="100%" bgcolor="#D9D9D9">

My CMF Site News Articles pulled to my home page.  MADG and MADG_news are
ID's I created

              <dtml-with expr="MADG">
         <dtml-var MADG_news>

              <td width="100%" bgcolor="#D9D9D9">

Hi eric
thanks for your answers, but I am encountering problem in understanding
it...(forgive me but I'm really new to zope..)

this is your code:
<dtml-with expr="CMF">
         <dtml-var cmf_news>

I don't understand if CMF stands for the name of my cmf_site or for the path
to my folder/object and in this case what is the object?
I mean, suppose I have an article in a folder called myFirstArticle and this
would be the path to it: cmf_site/MyNews/MyArticles/MyFirstArticle, and your
code becomes something like this:

<dtml-with expr="cmf_site/MyNews/MyArticles/MyFirstArticle">
         <dtml-var cmf_news>

but then again: what is cmf_news? where do I get that variable from?
thanks again and I hope you or anyone else could help me with this.

This is what I use to pull the last 3 dates from my squishdot site (without
stuff in parens)

<dtml-with expr="squishdot_site">    (squishdot folderish/object)
              <dtml-var articles_html>        (copied code from
              </dtml-with>                             (close tag)

Same concept with my CMF site

<dtml-with expr="CMF">
         <dtml-var cmf_news>

I pull both CMF News and Squishdot News to my front page.  Anyone posting to
 my CMF or Squishdot site will see there posting headline on the fron page.

Hi list,
I am new to Zope and I am stuck with this problem:
I have created folders and subfolders and I now need to retrieve the content
of these subfolders and display it in the home page.
Let's say I have 4 different folders, each one has 3 subfolders and each
subfolder has a list of articles or news_items.
How can I import the content of the last article published in a specified
subfolders, in the homepage? or the last news_item published in a specified
subfolder into the index_html of the homepage?

thanks for helping
