Thank you for your reply and questions. I will gladly answer them because having a page feature with it would be something that would be put in allot of use in my case. That's pretty much the only thing holding me back from fully using lifetype. I am also quite experience when it comes with working with wordpress.
One uses pages to display custom content not in a blog form. So for example if someone wanted to make an about us or me page and contact us or me page...etc
Normally there would be no RSS feed for pages, but I do believe there are mods out there for wp that sends out info about the page every time its updated. But in my case I wouldn't want any RSS feed. So if you were to have it made for pages it should be an option that's switchable in the admin.
For myself I know I would prefer http://bogname.domain.com/
<page name here>, but yes for lots of cms's they have it as you typed.
As for templates, most cms's have pages use the main template for the site that's activated. So w/e template the user has setup, that's the one the pages would have to.
Yes there would normally be a sidebar section for pages. As for creating/editing page an advanced tinymce editor would work best. One where you can edit the source (a.k.a html) which supports backgrounds, tables, images, fonts...the whole shebang, so users can really customize the content inside pages to however they see fit.
Normally pages would show up in the sidebar of the site template. The pages would use the site template so you would always see the sidebar no matter which page someone was on.
Like stated earlier... if I was able to work with backgrounds, tables, images, fonts and just edit the source of the html I would be very happy.
Also another thing that I think Lifetype should get is a static page with a multi blog system. The multi blog system is where people can create an account and create blogs for themselves (which becomes www.subdomains.site.com
). They would also be able to join other blogs within that place and all the blogs that the user joined would be displayed in a certain area (it can be a specific page or something). As for static page, its basically an option in the admin panel that can make a default page for any created blog using that installation instead of the mainpage for the blog. For example:// I made a page called "Homepage" and the content on it was "You Can Edit This", as the static page. When someone creates a blog using the multi blog system, the only page they would have is that Homepage with that content on it until they make there own ones.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. If anything comes up money wise, I would be glad to support your work that way.
