This MOD was inspired by this MOD Request: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1456665

I plan to add some sort of template block you can use in the templates to throw out all page, fix up the page stylesheet so they look nicer, and whatever you can think of :)

Edited 26.2.2009 18:21 UTC+1 - added info
Edited 26.2.2009 21:55 UTC+1 - updated page edit screenshot
Edited 15.3.2009 16:35 UTC+1 - added info for translation

Information for translations
I would like to pack this MOD with as many translations as possible. As I speak only a few languages and can hardly supply accurate translations for more than two or three languages I would appreciate your help.

What to translate:
  • The language file in root/language/en/mods/, please save it in UTF8 so I can pack it properly
  • These strings in the install file (please change the lang attribute to your language's ISO code):
    <title lang="en">Static Pages</title>
    <description lang="en">This MOD adds a module to the ACP through which you can add static pages on the forum.</description>
    <author-notes lang="en">BBCodes are supported. An optional edit is included to allow URL rewrites for nice looking URLs.</author-notes>
  • The changelog, however this is optional and not neccesary
  • The DIY insturctions - since there are key instructions to make the MOD work, please include them
Information about the development plan and functionality

MOD download will be offered when I reach the first beta version. Expect it in a week (poke me if I go over this date)

The pages will be served by one php file. Without mod_rewrite, they will be accessible as page.php?id=1, page.php?id=n etc... with mod_rewrite, it will be possible to determine your custom URLs, this feature might be added a bit later though.

Page content will be cached for a few hours but purging cache will NOT delete anything, as that would be totally against caching. After editing or adding a page, the cache for that page will be refreshed, so no need to manually refresh it.

To add pages, you will never have to touch the files, everything is accessible by ACP.

I plan to upgrade this MOD throughout the development and release a fully functional, yet simple version first. There will be upgrade paths, so no worries about installing the MOD.

Hey ammeck

Thanks for giving a interest in my request. This is an awesome mod..or will be.

Can you provide the download link so i can install it and give feedbacks?

EDIT: Only thing im worried about is, when purge the cache, won't all the pages or the content of the pages be gone?

Good point.. maybe have the mod to insert the context into the file? ie. newpage.php
The contents could be placed inside the file and when editing, can be easily done so by fetching the data from that file :? :|
God knows :)
Wish you luck with development, would be an awwesome addon!
