Cool stuff! One feature that would be really sweet is a page template kind of thing.... The page template could work like an 'layout file' where you specify where objects goes. Each object should have a type, like image, wysiwyg, raw-html, container and so on just like today buy instead of just have them in a list you connects them to different parts of the page. (page templates specifies with parts are available on this page) Container type holds a list of objects just like each page does today in your cms. Example: Template 1 --------- |(1) | | (2)| | (3) | --------- Object (1): Image (on edit becomes an image select type of thing- Object (2): Html Object (3): Container (can hold many objects) Template 2 --------- |(1) | | (2) | |(3) (4)| --------- Object (1): Image Object (2): wysiwyg Object (3): Container Object (4): Container And when you create or edit one of your pages you choose what kind of template this page should render and you can then connect your objects to different parts of the page. Don't know if explained my dream features good enough but i did some ascii drawings at least ;) All i wanted to say was nice work, buy my head got spinning... -- Mathias Stjernstrom

You have several sortable lists, representing columns on the final page. In the admin page, you can drag the page elements between the different columns. I just don't know how to design the admin interface. Putting several columns beside each other would result in a page about 2000 pixels wide. Putting them under each other would result in loads of scrolling. Hmm...I will think of something. Stefan: I guess you mean the LoginEngine. I don't know if putting this into an engine makes sense, because to use it for an actual page, you will have to rewrite many parts, or at least add new page elements. I don't know enough about engines to decide yet.
