[resolved] Page with multiple editable text blocks (seperated) (7 posts)

    What I'm making is just a simple site re-build with a CMS for someone who knows no code. I'm using pages (no blog so I avoided posts) and every page has it's own custom template (there's different headers/backgrounds). That's the background, time for the problem.

    I can't figure out how to do what I'm envisioning, which is multiple text blocks/areas which are in separate divs (each edit-able by the end user) - seperated by a gap.

    If I was dealing with a user who knew code I could add </div><div class="textArea"> in the middle of the page's content (code view), but that's just a horrible idea since it's easily deleted from the visual view.

    Am I going to have to convert the pages to posts in categories?

    Can Pages can have multiple "pages" (1, 2, 3) and if so, could that work by including the second page on the main template and not displaying the page # count?

    Found these two functions to be a big help.

    I figured adding more pages would add them to the menu. Not so if I do this for my pages list:

    <?php wp_list_pages('include=12,6,7,8,10,11' ); ?>

    Then I just grab the 2nd text block I need from a new page like so and add a second the_post to my template:

      if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post();

    hacky solution but it works.

    Nice one ! :)

    Try this nice plugin that will probably solve your problem:

    Does this plugin still works on WP 2.5 ?

    It looks very good, but it's not updated recently.

    Sadly...it seems that is not developed anymore
    Writen on plugin page: Compatible up to: 2.2 http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-write-panel/

    This one is still nr'1 on my top wishes for plugins.
    So as for now we just have to wait/hope.
