Could you share the other modules?
at the moment only new, recoded versions of old modules, all of them in this weeks in private test's, not published yet. modules like Anynews, MultiSectionpicker, DownloadGallery and some of my own modules like a calendar, actress-portfolio, extented news module etc. all this modules use the same (or nearly the same) code, to read the folder structure and add there the access-files. if you think, you have a good solution, you use this code everywhere, but now, we need a new solution
the most of this modules was nearly ready to publish or ready for a public test - no matter.... better, to find the problem now before its going public
Only then did I start to hear warnings about how having a blank pages directory might cause issues if you named pages with the same name as a WB folder. But I pointed out that there was a check for that, and WB would not allow it.
Yes, there is a check for that. not possible, to add a page or a directory with the same name like the folders and files in the wb-root, for example, you cannot add a page with the name "account" or "framework". and if you dont have it in the page-tree, its also not possible to delete it via delete-buttons
the risk is the work via ftp-client, its crazy, if you have there maybe 100 or more access-files and new folders for parent pages or media, other possible problems are the functions like rebuild-accessfiles, i'm sure, we've not enough results for tests without a page directory. dont forget, you're the first reporter of this FG-problem
Never in my recollection did anyone say working without a pages directory could cause issues with individual module functionality.
the issue in the FG has nothing to do with the possibility, to work without a page-directory. i'm sure, that nobody of the testers has try it without a page directory, include myself
- Recommendation to work with a page directory or not - its Status Quo, that we have this possibility - its simple forgotten, to look also to this case
it make's me tired, that i cannot help here and that i have to wait for a solution, maybe its very simple, if you know, whats happend. i'll wait a couple of days. a answer like "your own fail, use a page-directory and you dont have this problem
" cannot be the answer for the users
