Adding new menu items and pages

I know this can be done ... sort of ... by creating a new content location and choosing use as template, and I have used this feature already for creating blogs or pages of articles, but will Power CMS ever be able to add menu items and pages on the fly? Dare I say, more like Wordpress? Thanks. :)

If you set up the menus to be dynamic this can be done.


see this tutorial for details:
http://www.webassist.com/tutorials/Create-new-pages-from-PowerCMS-templates

the section on creating the results page with links to the individual blogs is similar to how you would set up the menu.

a results page is really just a menu in a different format.

I have already done this tutorial. Do you have a tutorial on what you're describing ... with the dynamic menu items?

no, there is not a tutorial specific to the dynamic menu items.

the dynamic menu is really the same as the results page that shows the blog titles, instead of showing it in results format, it is showing the titles in menu format. it is the same concept at the heart though.

the results list shows the titles in a row with links.

that is the same thing a menu will do.

I don't think that's exactly what I'm looking for. I was hoping there was a way to create a menu item in the admin area, and a public page of the web site would be created as well, without having to first create a new page from a template and insert the content area. The method on the tutorial works great for blogs and article pages, but I was hoping to find something that would just create a new page unto itself. Thanks!

there is not a way outside of using the CMS templates to create new pages.
