what's the coolest way to have a page formatted landing page?

edited May 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I see I can have a Custom Page and make it the homepage, but then I have to hand-code the PHP for it?

Is there a cooler way to make page? or maybe a way to embed a wiki-based page?

    having experience with both, i would say that merging the two would not be without merit. but certainly it would be overkill and a waste of resources for the purposes of a single page for landing...

    the point of wiki is for community based knowledge capture... not as an 'easy' or 'cool' way to create a page.

    If you want this sort of a structure, just host a wiki on your address root, then host the forum in a subfolder. create whatever links you like on the wiki to the forum.

    If you want a page creation tool there is an app out called vanilla CMS, it will likely do what you need.
