with the new upcoming European privacy law and probably similar laws in other countries there are page that need to have information presented in a certain way. Static pages are a solution for that and we already have them but they are defined by the system.
My idea would be to extend permalinks for topics with an option to show the page like “ToS” or “Privacy”, that would combine two systems we already have and give the site owner the freedom to meet all the requirements given by the local or international law.
We would create a topic in the Staff Section, create a permalink with the “static” option and then create a link somewhere on the site for it. The “static” option has to make the topic public visible and remove all the stuff which makes a topic a topic
In the future that feature could be extend with ACL like in categories that way internal only static pages would be possible.
