Anyone worked out what they are going to use Xen pages for?

    Thinking on our general chat forum we may use them for tutorials on how to use the software, some of the older members might need a slight helping hand here or there to get the best out of their posting day. Anyone else thinking about em?

    1. Meet The Staff
    2. How To's (tutorials)
    3. Forum rules
    4. Smilies
    5. Link To Us page (like I did on my former designs site)

    I'm sure that there are several other uses that I haven't thought of yet.

    Embedding my own PHP scripts, hopefully more cleanly than vBulletin.

    On XenFans we're going to use them for documentation and replacing the wordpress "pages".

    A very useful feature. ;)
    I'll be doing some pretty cool things with them.

    Rules, FAQs, Tutorials, Staff Lists (+ a little bio), etc!

    Oh, I did see that before. Thanks.
    I have a knowledge base section of articles that use a forum.
    The pages can easily replace them if I can have sub-pages.
    Too bad I probably can't import my threads to the pages.

    And I assume anyone with the proper permissions can create pages.

    Seems like the Rules and FAQ would be best suited for http://xenforo.com/community/help/ but that's just me, lol.

    I wonder how easy it would be to add some more tabs...

    Possibly, but I'd rather have them in plain sight. Perhaps I will create a linked forum to link to the help page. I'll figure it out in October ;)

    Everything that I think should be static.

    Yes, but only if they know HTML :(...

    (although Kier is talking about viewing them, not creating them, so I am not entirely sure)

    Watched your screen cast, looking very good and very inspiring use of pages Floris!

    Which is where my default page suggestion comes in handy :p.

    Even if it isn't added, hopefully there will be a section for sharing page templates between users.

    I'll be making extensive use of them moving all the static content from threads into them.

    I also posted a mockup of a staff page on another thread.

    I do hope that you'll share that code Brogan when you get it together on your own page. :)

    Absolutely.
    I suspect though that someone else will get it done before me as I won't be using the software for a while.

    I'm currently creating a basic template which anyone can use.
    I'll post the code as soon as it's done.
