Subject Static content
Date Wed, 05 Oct 2005 10:03:04 GMT
I have been using 0.7 for a while but have just come up against the need 
to use static material. On paper I like the changes between 0.6 and 0.7 
but I find a development problem - perhaps it's me.

I am using the model of placing pages in src/documentation/content/ 
because I do not want them skinned. I then loose the ability to use 
"forrest run" for development (the links are broken - perhaps 
understandably). More significantly, if I use "forrest site" I get 
"BROKEN:" reports. These reports are not "true" (since the site is then 
complete) but they cause the build to fail.

Is my understanding correct. Are there ways round this?

(The other model - putting pages in src/documentation/content/xdocs to 
be skinned - works fine but I have legacy material in xml schemas I 
don't have, or want to write, input plugins for. Some of it I also 
specifically do not want skinned).
