our hooks into traditional web presentation pages

Note the “[] as header” option when editing any item.  That works well for just a person’s group header … try it … you may like it.  Maybe that option could evolve to read “Publish at ____ URL” … then it could be used as the hook between a traditional “fixed” web presentation page and our more “flexible” and dynamic evolving thought items. 

Obviously when a person clicks [Publish] a copy of their edited item appears at the designated URL. 

The hook to go back in the opposite direction is  a little recognizable gadget that appears (unobtrusively) at the bottom of the presentation screen.  It only appears to people authenticated to that group.   This is like a [edit ths page] that appears on many content producing applications.  It navigates an authenticated browser to the item in that group mind that represents the traditional web page he is seeing.  We need a catchy name and icon for it.   In a way it is part of what our group niche is selling.
Pictured above is what wordpress does to allow an “administrator” to easily navigate to the edit box to edit a page … note the tiny edit with a pen on the page … otherwise it is a “you go find it” kind of trip  cheeky

Okay. When I read this before it was just gobbldegook … now it has a context and makes more sense!

strange that this enlightenedhas not garnered any attention.

Off the top of my head, I don’t know what any of that means. I don’t know if you are talking about an existing feature and how it is not working. And existing feature you want upgraded. Or a new feature. I have seen none of that before now. So not much to say.

well yes this woud be a new feature.

the only thing  like it  already here is how you can change the header of a group by clicking “use as header”.

 you could look at it as a *easy* way to build a website.  wordpress has it as fiixed pages … but they are cumbersome to make … this method would flow quite naturally … that is as soon as a person learns not to be timid about writing items (er i mean posts) and projecting those items as webpages on their shiney new website.

woopse … er … where did my brillant opus go? ,.. shucks … oh there it is … suddenly hidden

Yes. It really should have it’s own icon though. More like a “knock knock” or “ping” or “poke”.
