Blank page plugin ?

One of our coders is looking at adding scores pages etc, just wondered if there is a plugin to create a blank page. So i can set it up for him.

By blank, need header, footer, sidebar ( optional ) and menu

So just no content

    You're thinking about it wrong. In Vanilla, URLs directly map to methods. So for instance, this page is at /discussion/18135. So it's talking to the 'DiscussionController' and calling the 'Index' method (since '18135' isn't a method's name, it defaults to 'Index') and then passed 18135 to the Index method.

    The Tagging plugin uses a URL like this: /discussions/tagged/test But how does a plugin add a method to the 'DiscussionsController' in Vanilla without modifying the code? Like this:

    public function DiscussionsController_Tagged_Create($Sender) {


    That method will now get triggered by the URL above when the plugin is enabled. It 'created' a new method in the discussions controller with some magic. :)
