This handy addon has 2 main uses:

1) Creating content files
Use the "Content File Manager" (a suite of admin screens provided with the addon) to automatically set filenames on your content records and then create all those files in bulk.

2) Calling your contents within existing pages/panels
If you want to show a given content record inside an existing page/panel, then this will allow you to do so. You simply call the new function with the "type" as your argument, and it'll show the content record. There are various functions for this; one will show the entire record/format within your panel, and the other will just show the content's body (and there's another one for the title-only too).
For VPCart V7 or above, you can call a given content record on your side panel via the Layout Manager as BYZ110 (this module) and BYZ162 (Extra Panel Elements, included within this module) let you do this easily without having to manually edit your header files, it can all be done via the Layout Manager.


Technical/Developer Information:
Redirection from your dynamic (shopcontent.asp) urls to the corresponding static (eg "about-us.asp") files is included within the module; you can configure it to do "301" redirects, "Canonical" header tags, or no redirection. 301 and canonical will allow search engines to not penalise duplicate urls and will keep your ranking. This module will also allow you to change your static urls (eg "aboutus.asp" to "about-us.asp") and the old static url will automatically redirect/canonical-tag in the same way when people land on the old static page.

The "Content File Manager" has 5 screens/tools:

1) Auto-Set FileName data
Using an existing column as your base (such as message, or messagetype) you can set all your content record filename values to an automatically-translated valid filename (eg turn "About Us" as a message (header) value to "about-us.asp" in your filename field) - This can be done in a single shot without editing the individual records. This also has a test-run facility so that you can see the old/new file status without updating the data.

2) Bulk-Edit FileName data
Using a multi-record screen (one row per content record), you can, if you want, edit all your filename values in one simple screen.

3) Validate FileName data
Displays a summary of any content records which have invalid (or duplicate) filename values.

4) Create Folders
Only relevant if you have BYZ027 installed. This will go through your content filename data and create any missing folders on your server.

5) Create Files
Press a button to generate all your static content files in one go. This also has a test-run facility so that you can see the old/new file status without creating the new files.

Please Note: You should never delete your old static files; you should instead just allow your system to do the kind of redirection specified within this module from old static files to corresponding new ones.

Changed the admin screens to use the generic BYZ cursor opening/closing functions to help avoid cursors getting blanked-out with 8k/memo (text/ntext) bugs.
Added an extra optional step on the installation notes explaining how to create an index on the filename column to help speed up the admin screens, and a new step for how to relabel the filename field on the edit-content screen, and an extra step to avoid the static url from being copied/set via the edit-content screen.
Added extra notes to explain Ongoing Maintenance on the usage notes.
