Re: PluginCategory for Files?

Thanks Torsten for your reply,
It may help to demonstrate what my idea is, and it may be a flawed idea to begin with. My objective is to have a main landing page for our main categories. I guess you could equate it to a category portal of sorts.
The goal of a category landing page would be to let our users know what the category is use for, and what type of pages should be created in that main category.
So I would like a one stop place for new users to go to, the category landing page, where they can understand what the category is for, and where they can see listings of existing wiki pages and files in that category.
So the category landing page would be a one stop shop if you will.

I have a doku wiki instance running where I was able to achieve this well. If you can please see at http://tpwtestuser.com/doku/material-processing
I opened that category up for anonymous editing so you can see what I am trying to achieve here with my Tiki. Otherwise you would not be able to see the two boxes to create a page and use a template.

When you view my Doku page Material Processing, you'll find a list of pages that were created, and a list of files that were uploaded into that category. And you'll also see two fields, one for creating the page, and one for choosing a template to create the page with. This is the one stop shop page I am trying to achieve with our Tiki.
Can I do this with Tiki, I know I can, I just don't know how yet. Doku was easy to set up for this, I am struggling a tad with Tiki, but only out of my own ignorance of Tiki.
Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
