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.
