    I am looking for ideas how I can use xenForo Pages to enlarge the user experience in my community.

    What can you accomplish with Page Node Callbacks? Do xenForos help pages use Page Callbacks?

    Xenforo's Native pages aren't that useful.
    Xenforo.com doesn't use them.
    Pages aren't even findable via searching ! (obviously they aren't important).
    Xenforo 1.2 enables Pages to be findable via Xenforo Search.

    Consider tweaking the RM for your Pages needs ?
    What else have you looked into ?

    XenForo's pages are quite useful. XenForo uses a modified core to run the website as it does quite a bit more functionality than just adding pages. The comparisons between the two are basically comparing apples and oranges.

    I was going to say. I've always found XF Pages very useful and created many custom pages with good content that people found useful enough I created similar pages for their sites.

    wtf.com have some great examples of page usage
    Brogan created a very good custom page for his site clip the apex

    There's a thread where people posted their custom pages about somewhere where you can get some ideas from.

    If you do use Xenforo's native pages ...
    This would probably be useful.

    A simple Page editor is
    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/wysiwyg-page-editor.36294/
    Good: can be done outside the AdminCP by members.
    Bad: Not good for complex pages.

    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/pages.36095/
    - incomplete, development status unknown.

    Maybe you could use XenHebra for your Pages ? (probably not).
    http://xenforo.com/community/resources/8wayrun-com-xenhebra-no-forum.1355/
    or even: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/noforo-by-waindigo.42783/

    Depending on your needs:
    Vaultwiki (powerful wiki)
    XenCarta (lite wiki)

    You might be able to use the great Resource Manager (with some tweaks).
    xenforo.resource.manager.as.a.page.tool.jpg
    If you want Articles ... Just name the Tab Articles.

    - You might look into this one second.

    Showcase can work for certain types of Pages.
    Great demo:

    http://www.familyguyfans.com/showcase/francine-smith.9/
    - maybe try showcase first ?
