Build page from posts

    A simple module that will allow you to add any posts, in any order, to a page, to build a sort of reading list. Or simply an "Aggregate" object, that would simply be built from selected posts.

    This would be indispensable for using WP for subscription sites, curriculum sites, etc.

    This is in fact possible, if one knows how to code the php of wordpress. So if you do your themes alone, this is a very good idea to display infos that are written as "posts" on different "pages", in different aggregations.

    We did this (me and Vanda) on a website that uses WP as a CMS.

    Is this crucially different from using categories or some other custom taxonomy? I have described an e-journal implementation that does this in some detail here. With a powerful theme, categories and custom taxonomies can do exactly what you want.

    The alternative route would be to combine posts and pages the way you propose. It seems to me that for that, no change to the core would be needed; it could perfectly well be done by a plugin.

    I think taxonomies are the way to do this really.
