    Any thoughts being given to making the Pages Forum feature a seperate function.
    It would be nice to have these pages (with tabbed menu) to fall outside the "Forum" as a whole.

    + 1 Yes !
    Pages need to be Independent of the Forums !
    I've requested this all over the Pages thread. http://xenforo.com/community/threads/pages.489/

    They also need a WYSIWYG editor.

    They also need to be editable from OUTSIDE the adminCP !

    Kier likens Pages with PHP callbacks as mini one-page applications. That makes it *EVEN WORSE* - such amazing functionality is buried in the forums.

    Pages are great, but not that good, in their current form.
    Xenforo is just a forum so far, I have learned over time that the Pages are more of a prototype (Xenforo.com doesn't use) and that the Home Tab wasn't a real tab (I think it is now).

    Your best bet is getting Jaxel to make a XenPageso addon.

    Do you mean the Pages would have their own Tab ?

    your title is misleading.
    you might want to edit it to: Make Pages independent of the Forum.

    Cory, I think I am wanting something similar to what you want.

    Can you give me the exact details of what you want ?
    PM with site examples, screengrabs if you need to.

    I think you can easily make your own Tab. Then shouldn't it be easy just to make some HTML pages ?

    Wow! This is great....
    I am glad to see all the enthusiasm in this product....
    So I run a boating website. I have a variety of static content, like reference pages, weather radar, etc....
    In VB I was using the Pages function of vbAdvamced, but then move to making Static Articles in the VB4 CMS....
    Now I using the Pages feature of xF, but it looks kinda funny to have the pages categorized in the forum structure.
    What I am looking for is a Tabbed menu items called "REFERENCES"
    Then four Sub-Menu items called: Boating, Maps, Weather, Tools
    Then each of the Sub-Menus would have a drop-down to take you to specific pages.
    Like this
    Boating | Maps <- SubTab
    >Flags >Fishing Spots
    >Knots >Boat Traffic
    My VB site is aquiacreek.com
    My xF site is potomacboaters.com (for now)
    An example of one of my xF Pages is:
    You can see similar using VB here:
    I am reading up on Jaxel's post about Creating Pages in the Developer's forum.
    But I am still trying to grasp the concepts of MVC so this whole "create a controlller" is making my head spin.
