I was happy to find this plug-in this afternoon, as it does exactly what I want, which is to have some pages that are a part of this site be static, and not rendered in the same way as blog entries, but still formatted using the same templates as the rest of the site, so they fit in. This is good for things like the page with contact information and so on. Things that look funny with a date listed above them, and things that you never want to get lost in the shuffle.
I'm sure that someone better versed in Python could have figured this out a lot sooner, but there seems to be a problem in the setup instructions for the plug-in. The instructions say to set "staticdir" to be the path to the directory where you want your static pages to be kept. However, the variable in config.py is called "static_dir". Maybe those variables are for two totally different things, but I don't think so. I'll report it as a "bug" tomorrow. It's always something like that, isn't it? I really have to work on paying more attention to what I'm doing.
