django-flatpages-x 0.1.3

Some Basic extensions for django-contrib-flatpages

===============================
Django Flatpage Extensions
===============================

An extension to django.contrib.flatpages to provide

- Better support for **markdown** and other similar markup formats. We provide support for Markdown but you can write your own parser to support rst or creole.

- Optional support for the excellent **markItUp** jquery editor. This requires the installation ``django-markitup``.

- Easy inclusion of images in flatpages. Viewing Admin **image thumbnails** requires the installation of ``sorl-thumbnail``.

- The inclusion of HTML **metatags** such as keywords and descriptions in flatpages.

- Content **revisions**.

Migrating you data to flapages_x should not be difficult since the
data which currently in the contrib.Flatpage model (content, titles) is not affected.
Your templates will still utilize the *{{flatpage.content}}* and *{{flatpage.body}}*
context variables.
Once you install flatpages_x, the Markdown
is actually stored in the related Revisions model.
When you save a flatpage, this will be rendered as html via the markdown
parser and saved to the Flatpage.content field
