I've been around here for a while, mostly reading and getting
smarter. I've had this idea for a while, and thought I might bring it
up here, even if it might be a bit crazy.
My idea would be for a future version of WordPress, maybe WP 3.0 to
totally modularizing the data types, and the WP core would be only
the user system and theme system. currently they're 3 types of data
in WP, posts, pages and links (even though posts and pages are stored
in the same table, they are different).
Making the data processing types independent would really help making
implementation of new data types easy, as would be disabling unwanted
ones. I sometimes have clients who only want a static page, and get
very confused with the post and page.
So you'll ask why WordPress, WordPress is a blogging system and not a
full CMS, any they're many a CMS out there that do this. Well,
WordPRess has great features, it is easy to admin, has a great theme
system and is really a good choice for allot of small sites.
Well, then what about the simplicity for simple bloggers, who are %95
of WP users? Well, If it's done right, something can be both
sophisticated and simple at once. Mac OS X will prove that. On the
contrary, It can make site management allot easier in some situations.
Just a thought, please don't laugh too hard.
Sorry for my chutzpah,
