As long as the board search won't support it I dislike any non-board "Pages" and also think this is a disadvantage that most people forget about. Creating individual pages is nice and fine, but content means almost nothing if you can't find it with a search. As for that, I always suggest to use posts to realize whatever people wanted to achieve, as they're supported by the board search.

You could post a request in https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... es/support . Perhaps they can change it so pages are index in the search in a future version (although I have no idea if it's technically possible).

Auto Groups Ext (the next official extension) is under construction.
After official extension Auto Groups is Posting Templates ?
I mean is Posting Templates will be the next after Auto Groups ?
I don't think so. The difference in votes between Posting Templates and the 2 that got selected is quite lopsided (23 vs. 111 & 23 vs. 85). This topic will be closed when we feel it is convenient to do so and a new topic will be created with 4 poll options again, likely towards the end of Auto Groups development. The 2 that didn't make it this time around will be included in that new poll plus 2 other options we deem as desirable extensions. Based on the results of the new poll we'll select what to work on next.

I had the same thought when I saw this message yesterday, but I was not sure if you where able to do it yourself. I think this is one of the most used modifications so it needs to be ported to an extension.

A poll for the next official extension is not likely not happen for the next 4-6 months. Regardless of that if there is already an extension out there for something we wouldn't take that over and usually leave those ideas/extensions for the authors that are already working on them.

This poll closed almost a year ago so locking this as it should have been.
