[Discussion] Page Management System

for a few custom pages you could use the threads as "static" page (i still dont see much difference as WP makes difference between static pages and posts, all the same to me), or

use the tutorial on how to make a custom pages: it s cut and paste one php file then add your custom html content.

secondly, the most popular pages mod stopped with mybb 1.6 which means this poll is sorta contrary to popular wishes, or what the modders could or wanted to make. In other words, if more people wanted it, it would have been made.

If you are gonna bring the pages mod into core, IT MUST NOT BE A SIMPLE STATIC PAGE mod, it must at the very least do what the PORTAL currently does, and it SHOULD be able to pulls assets, threads and users for the CALENDAR, maybe even the GALLERY attachment....

BUT i have to add that Xthreads by itself it can change the PAGE LAYOUT of a whole forum, its Threads and posts, so you CAN set up a "static" pages forum....ITS drawback (and maybe its strength) is that its FORUM specific change ONLY.....

And global system of pages is what "I" need: PORTAL, CALENDAR, GALLERY, DOWNLOADS,

SO developers need to think of the tools to make those things happen, coz a pages mod that end up for a few static pages when the portal is removed is useless to me !! Sad

sure, you could use a thread if you want, but a lot of people don't want to judging by the amount of downloads and popularity the page manager plugin received when it was released. sometimes folks just want a clean static page without the extra fluff that a thread has. personally, I think a static page that's built using a page manager looks more professional.

I'd also like to point out that building a custom php page without using any type of plugin/manager is less efficient in the management department. people use CMS type products because it increases their efficiency and groups most tasks into 1 system.

most 1.6 plugins will work just fine with mybb 1.8...take google seo for example. I don't understand your argument here.
