Hi,

One thing I would like to see is a simplified template system. I am sure the current system is probably the most flexible templating system available, but it has a very steep learning curve. I would like to be able to dump all templates into a few HTML files (say one for each page that they represent) and then edit the HTMl using Dreamweaver/Topstyle, before loading it back in. I can't seem to work out which templates contain the stuff I want to edit otherwise, and judging by other forums I've seen I'm sure I'm not the only one with this problem (otherwise they'd look different to each other, and not all the same).

Other than this, fantastic work guys!

Unlikely to ever happen, the current system is probably as simple as it is going to get. If you want something less complex you probably will loose just about all the functionality the templating system offers. Instead you'll have a dosen of textboxes allowing you to type in various colors and that's it.

Is there any chance of some extension that would allow the dumping of templates into a single file that could be edited in a HTML editor, so I can see each template in context?
