Can we have an additional displaycode added to the stock slashcode
schema?

The idea being that, with the addtional code, a story could be
marked with this additional code, and it wouldn't be included in the
index page's lists of stories, or any other content, for that matter.

But the story itself would still be accessable given a url to it.

This may explain it a little better: <a href="http://
www.lottadot.com/article.pl?sid=04/02/16/1627212">http://
www.lottadot.com/article.pl?sid=04/02/16/1627212</a>

Something like this would go a long way towards others using
slashcode as a CMS type system. Instead of /about.shtml one could
create a story "article" for it, and then edit mainmenu;misc;default
to link to that story's sid, instead of the shtml.

This wouldn't necessarily create any greater overhead, because the
article itself would still be written to .shtml by slashd's freshenup.

    I think this same functionality could be accomplished by creating a
    section and tagging it as 'isolated'. These stories wouldn't appear in any
    section, but would still be readable.

    So how does one mark a section as 'isolated'?

    Isolated sections *used* to be an option in the admin when editting
    sections. Then they were changed to 'contained' and 'collected'.

    See <a href="http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?
    thread_id=3746370&forum_id=4018">this recent discussion</a> about
    the way sections are laid out (and coded) in Slash.
