    My suggestion is simple, the possibility of commenting a page...like the (vb) site of Floris: http://wetalknation.net/team/79988-floris/ (i don't know if it's a normal modified thread or a page...anyway, i like that layout of comments :D)

    I would like to see an option to apply comments or replies to a page. Maybe even polls too...

    I hope this hasn't already been suggested, I did a search and couldn't find anything.

    Following on from this post on the 'Using page nodes as a CMS for articles' thread:

    This would be great, linked to a thread in an associated forum. :)

    I guess I don't see the difference between a page with comments and a post with comments other than the templating. Why go through all the trouble making unindexable pages with comments, when you could just create a very unique set of templates for a forum that will display the first post similar to that of an article and the replies like comments?

    My first reaction is ... OK ... let's see your unique templates.

    Pages are a good idea, but in their current form, aren't that useful.

    Other issues:
    (1) pages are "stuck" in the forums tab - they can't be displayed elsewhere.
    (2) can't be liked
    (3) must be created in the adminCP ! :(
    (4) less overall features than a regular thread / post.

    Okay,

    If someone would be willing to buy me a license, I'd be willing to edit the templates to make replies look like comments and the original post look like an article. I did it for IPB, and can do it for Xen as well no doubt.
