Power CMS2 & Power Gallery in one, + blog option

Can you add the possibility to some how merge both power cms2 and power gallery into one admin area so clients/users do not have to log in to two different admin areas.
The ability to merge web assist modules would be an awesome asset.

Also in the Power CMS2 the option to make post in the same format as a blog. Or put in the forum how to do this.

I would like to vote for this request too - more importantly a way to merge CMS and Power Gallery

A seamless integration of a WordPress blog into your existing site structure would entirely negate the need for PowerCMS.

I can't now envisage creating a site without blog integration (whether or not the actual blog pages are public) - there are huge advantages, - content can be drawn from blog posts into any area of your regular site, and can dynamically update based on any one of unlimited categories you can assign to each post.

You can also, of course, display the blog itself entirely within your existing site design. SEO is hugely increased, and you can have greater levels of feedback from your site visitors.

Wordpress also comes with a vast number of (free) plugins, for events calendars, video & image galleries etc etc.

Highly recommend it.

I think the idea was to have a blog type feature within the CMS product rather than using wordpress.

But to be honest the ability to combine CMS2 and Power Gallery would be higher up my list of wishes than the blog feature.

WordPress largely IS CMS. And my point was that WordPress is a considerably more powerful and versatile CMS system for a site than Power CMS, (whether or not you choose to use it as such) AND it has the blog feature (natch) AND gallery functionality (many plug-ins for this), AND single Login per user, with several assignable user levels AND numerous plugins etc etc etc etc etc etc. YOU DON'T NEED TO USE THE BLOG FEATURE ITSELF - just use it as a CMS system. Thousands of people per day are making that decision.

And its free.

Or you could buy Power Gallery (1 per site) and PowerCMS (1 per Site) try to integrate them under one login, then wait for a blog-type feature to appear from somewhere . . .

The usefulness of PowerCMS and PowerGallery went down the plug-hole when the licence changed to per/site.

Just sayin' . . .
