    Keep building on that. I'm thinking of converting all my old HTML websites - the ones that didn't need dynamic content - to WordPress, just to make them scalable.

    Yes, I agree this is could be the best new feature in WordPress 1.5. I was orginally using WP 1.2 just to power the front page of my site, with the rest of the site written in XHTML. I've upgraded to 1.5 and am now porting over the content of the XHTML pages. Very cool.

    I also agree the Pages features could use a lot more. Yes, keep building on it. Specifically, fixing issues with wp_list_pages and adding more template tags pertaining to Pages.

    Keep up the good work.

    I think it could be enhanced by adding the ability to link to an already built static page. Basically, one would need to add a URL field to the wp_posts table. If data was entered in the URL field one could then disable the content field thru Javascript to disallow any further content adding (since it would never be seen).

    I mentioned this in a different post, but staring at the code it is a fairly simple fix. Unfortunately, there is no elegant way to do this in a plugin (that I can see).

    @drivingmenuts,
    Why can't you just go into Manage Links and add the link to a stand-alone page? Perhaps I'm not quite understanding your question...

    As I understand it, 'Pages' and 'Links' are two different things. Pages appear to be static pages within the site, but Links can point either within or without. There is no way to combine the two.

    Now, Links would work, except that you can only sort within Link Categories, but Categories themselves do not sort. So one couldn't have an artificial 'Pages' category within Links appear <i>before</i> Blogroll category.

    Perhaps I'm applying a stricter definition than was intended.
