Detailed Pages like Yahoo company pages
I haven't seen any info on anything like this yet so I'll ask... Has anyone done a mod that let's detailed pages be created similar to the company pages that yahoo has for big corporations... like this page
http://dir.yahoo.com/Business_and_Economy/Shopping_and_Services/Automotive/Makers/Vehicles/General_Motors__GM_/
I've got a project on one of my sites where I'd like to do something similar.. ie I'd like to be able to use some of the affiliate programs to pull stock prices, news whatever, or maybe even just have links to them... For each company I might have four or five links to different areas of their site. And I'd love to have those links be ones from the Links db so I can track them etc... I figure I can also use on the search affiliate programs to run out searches on the web that I can get paid for.

I'm almost guessing I might need a separate table in Links to store all the info (except the links) that would appear on the detailed page, and create a new template that relies on the stuff in that table to pull out... My preference would be for static pages that get built each time all the other pages get rebuilt as well.

Would the detailed.cgi be capable of handling something like this if I added all these new columns for the detailed stuff into the Links table?
