    Here is an idea who's time has come...
    Have a new branch or at least dedicated categories
    to strictly CONTENT MANAGEMENT on WordPress :)

    As you are well aware, more 'n' more users, publishers,
    marketers use WordPress for their sites.

    Have specific categories just for CMS. Specific plugins
    themes widgets etc... that would encourage the developement
    of content management specific add-ons. I know there are
    a lot of them now, but they should have there own
    category. Call it "wordpress cms" ... cool huh.

    Hmm, I think this is more a question of the marketing, then of developing.

    no actually it isn't ... not talking about the marketing end.
    what i'm saying is have, here at the word press site,
    dedicated categories for content management plug-ins/themes/widgets, etc...
    These dedicated categories would contain ONLY plug-ins/themes/widgets which would/could be used solely for content management.

    SO....

    Instead of searching ALL the plug-ins, widgets, etc... for suitable ones to use on a WP content site, they would be already
    grouped in the dedicated content management categories thus reducing the time needed to find them.
    It would be no different from the already existing categories of plug-ins except for the fact that the "new" category would be strictly content management specific.

    Mm I really see no point on it, maybe if you shed out a specific example?

    I think WP already works as a CMS without needing a branch, and if you are looking for a particular plugin, it doesn't matter if you use WP as a blog or as a CMS, you can use it for both as it is.

    Please don't take it personal, but I don't consider it useful.

    Well, I don't know if the core code of WP would need to change, but you could create a "branch" in the documentation.

    I would suggest adding a "Setting up a CMS" page on the "Working With WordPress" section. It could feature common uses, common mods, and other ideas that might help the CMS'er.

    A CMS Plugins category might be more difficult, because each CMS will vary about as much as each blog. My CMS needs better document searches. Yours might not. It seems like every plugin *could* fit into that category.

    But I can agree that documentation might help a lot of people out.

    Whoa...seems to be getting of track here.
    Let me see if I can clarify what I mean.

    specific categories for cms- is just that- only a category.

    Just like on the side-bar above, on the left.
    there is "extend home" "plugins" & "themes" - categories.
    If you click on plugins you get even more categories.

    All I'm saying is a category for specific content management plugins would be nice, it would save alot of time searching.
    and possibly engourage the developement of even more
    content management plugins.

    But like brockangelo stated "It seems like every plugin *could* fit into that category" that's very true.

    so..... like the church lady on SNL used to say....
    "never miiiiiind"
