This plugin is an idea I have to extend the content management functionality of Geeklog. I've been using GL for some pure marketing related website projects and want a better and easier way to create linked content or categorize content. Mostly for non-techies as I can make GL do what I need now -- but it will need to be easier for non technical or new users.

These sites don't really want to publish stories for comment but want the non-techie ability to self-manage the site content. The topics are a good way of organizing the content as well but you can't have subtopics. We need a way to have a "Products" topic and then subtopics. If I have 5 products, I really don't want to then have another 5 topics either. A typical site may have 5 or more major headings and 3 sub sections - that would be 15 topics and I may only have 1 article in each.

It would be nice to be able to easily see the site map and structure and reorganize the structure easily. Content could be assigned from a staticpage, external page or article. Add a nice site navigation block and that is an overview of what I've been thinking would be useful.

Many of us have used the HTMLAreaEditor but I've also integrated the editor from Labs4. It is a fee-based HTML editor that is used in textarea fields but I like it a lot better. It includes a image library feature that allows users to upload, insert and manage images for stories.


Please consider contributing to support my efforts ..

This is not what you were thinking but still is useful in terms of conceptualizing and a great read.

Hey Blaine,

That Labs4 looks pretty groovy. It is pretty easy to integrate if that all I wanted to do?

Thanks,

Scott

Blaine, whats the status of this project? I'm thinking I could use it as a documentation system and have it intregrated with Geeklog, I'm currently using Phpmyfaq because it has some useful features.

One of which is the display entry as xml, I am currently deloping a DLL for an IDE I'm writing which will interpret the xml which means I will alway have the most recent version of the language documentation!
