I wonder if I could jump in here a bit late. I haven’t posted in a long time, but follow Modx closely. I haven’t had time though to really look at Revolution.
Reading this thread made me wonder what the challenges would be to structure the Manager in a way that it can be completely customized. Imagine a repository of templates, snippets etc. all for building different types of Manager setups for blogs, storefronts, simplified for basic users, advanced etc.. This is Modx, after all.
If I understand things correctly, this is currently not the case with Revolution. I’m not talking about Manager themes, and if I understand correctly, custom Manager pages in Revolution are addons, not something that could create a completely new manager. Or am I mistaken?
