Actually, we sort of have this capability now, but it's it's not in one plugin, or one OEM version. It's an extension of what I've been working on with the Blogger and Blinki (blog-link-wiki) concept, plus a bunch of routines we have in other plugins.

We have everything, except actually the interface you are looking for.

We have image upload and scale.
With dynamic serving, you don't have to build static pages, and I'd suggest you *not* build static, it would add a layer of complexity you won't have if pages are served dynamically.
We have mutliple page/multiple detail page concepts.

If you want to discuss this further, if you have a specific need, bring it up in the Ultranerds forum, and and we can go into more details.

I have two or 3 major projects on my table at the moment, but if there is a demand for this, after these projects are cleared I can take serious look at this concept. It just means retargeting the blogger/blinki I've been working on to first do user pages, then allow editable content.

Dynamic vs static pages: In the past, with lower end machines, no SQL database, and expensive servers and hosting costs, static/pseudo-dynamic pages had a benefit. They saved a lot of CPU overhead that wasn't available, and kept server load down. Now, with the need for more interactive content, serving all but the most *truly* static pages dynamically makes much more sense. Pages don't go out of date. User access and options can be controlled through scripts rather than the on/off server-based access, and you have more control over what content is actually delivered on each page view. While Links SQL can be used in static mode on large directories and small, its true power is realized when you use page.cgi to parse pages in real-time before displaying them to the user.
