Excellent little add-on!  Works great on a EE2 install - would love to see this for EE3 *nudge nudge*.

Top marks though, really nice way to ease clients into the whole template minefield without having to show them that Pages module dropdown!

Perfect to work together with Structure

Very nice work.  So far it works like a charm.  Made my work much more simple for normal Pages publishing.  My clients find it easier to publish/edit, and hiding fields based on the template makes it even more powerful!

Started with structure but moved over to better pages. Now I create one channel field group (in most cases) and let better pages sort the fields out. Customer also like this one. Makes it also easier to switch a entry to another channel since they al consist of the same channel fields. 5 stars!

Great idea, mediocre implementation. Gives PHP errors with no upload preferences set in EE 2.5.2. Doesn’t work with Structure out of the box. Modified code fairly easily to work with Structure index field.

Suggested enhancement to allow selection of Structure vs. Pages modules, and…crickets.

Brilliant.  I love the simplicity (ease-of-use) of this add-on and the fact that it builds on existing EE functionality.  I’ll be using this add-on over and over again!
