For a change of topic...
I've been giving some focus on training and usability lately, writing up a
lot of stuff... and I just realized that I want to change the name of the
stock "Page" content-type.
Because of the very common expression "Web page" clients can get confused by
the "Page" content-type.
I actually think the term "web page" is very useful in communicating with
clients. To me that expression "web page" = unique URL. But as a
content-type, multiple "Pages" can be listed on one "Web page" using Views,
built in taxonomy views, etc. And, of course, other content-types show up
on "web pages" --- so it's a semantic mess.
I do like Drupal's out-of-the-box suggested distinction of a "Page" being a
listing of more permanent, non time-bound info, whereas a story is more
newsy and gets old (hence the default settings of having the byline and pub
date turned on in a story and off for a "Page").
So the question is, *what to rename the "Page" content-type?*
This is my list so far... I don't like any of them:
2. Generic Content
3. Static Content
4. Informative Content
What do you guys use? Do you just keep "Page." Have you noticed that "Page"
is confusing for clients?
p.s. I haven't been following D7 progress closely... does anyone know if
anyone else has pointed out this problem and suggested a different name for
