All dynamic?

All dynamic?
Ok, this may be a stupid question, but here goes..

Is there any way to make all the results/links dynamic? For instance, "Build All" created hundreds of static pages with the links hard-coded into the page. Is there any way to draw the results completely dynamically?

Just seems that it's redundant to have the information in the database, then *also* hard-coded in the static directory. I'm hoping (for the sake of disk space) there is a more efficient way to do it. ;)

Links can generate the entire site dynamically.

The problem is that it burns a lot more CPU, and on active servers, with active sites, and lots of page hits on the same pages, you can _significantly_ save the CPU load.

There are quite a few threads on dynamic generation, many sites are, and if you want to dynamically generate the detailed pages, you'll most likely have to fix a small bug (check the forum here) a variable name changed from one beta to the next, and it wasn't doing what was expected.
