[geeklog-devel] Blocks in GL2 as Plugin?

I may be out of sync but let me ask these questions:
Will the core not have a fundamental underlying layout control facility for
formatting common site components ?
Does there not need to be some core component or set of operations that
control the site layout?
- header, footer, blocks which are the basic building blocks of the site.
Plugin's essentially today call and need to call the common functions to
wrap the site layout around their content.
You may be referring to the Block Editor and for that I think we need to
explore what the ideal set of features need to be.
It may be a replaceable component but the underlying table structure to
support a basic editor or advanced editor need to be in place.
If we agree that blocks are the basic building blocks of the site content we
can explore what additional attributes are needed.
Are blocks just an item in GL2 or do they need to be identified and stand on
their own ?

Instead of a "block plugin" how about individual plugins be able to
generate blocks as they want (and how the admin configures). This can
even include "center block" stuff. We could have a generic plugin
that is available for adding random blocks. Also we could have a
totally separate plugin to handle RDF/RSS blocks. More complicated
blocks, say a weather block, could be their own plugin.
