Team Pages at tiki.org

posts: 681

All dues respect to the awesome work the tiki folks do around here, but I was surfing tiki and became interested in the team pages, and I noticed every team page seems to have an additional Team Intro page and or release page, making three times the number pages I feel is not necessary.
In an already complex and sometimes daunting number of tiki pages, some redundant or outdated, do we really need an intro and release page for every team page? Can we just have the intro and release sections at the top of the actual team page?
I know there is a good reason for this, but it just caught my eye is all.

Keep up the great work guys!

Hi John,

There's a method to the madness, as they say. The reason for putting the intro information for each team on a separate page is so the intro info for all the teams can be included (using the Include plugin) on the overview Teams page. Each team page of course also displays its own intro information via the plugin, as part of its page content. So it prevents the information from having to be written more than once, and prevents content inconsistency.

Thanks Gary. Makes sense, the madness, the methods, so much behind the scenes!
