This one might be a bit of a big one, but I'll suggest it anyway :)
As you already have the ability to define editors via config, and the properties to use, it could be cool if there was a standalone control you could use on the front end to allow users to submit data into those tables. I guess it would be kind of like the old DocToForm, or Contour to some degree, but it would defintiely make creating user forms for data going into a custom table easier.
Hehe, actually did this for a client a while back. It was a bit messy as I had to extract some core bits out to the frontend (usercontrol), but it worked. If you're interested I can send you the code.
It wouldn't be that hard to do in a generic way, but it would probably make sense to wait for the new Umbraco UI, so that the control/field part can be made more clean (instatiating Umbraco datatypes is basically a hack right now).
That sounds fair.
Would be tempted tot ake a look at what you did though to see how complicated it is. Could maybe make some core suggestions / feature requests for making it easier to do that sort of thing.
Here's a link for the frontend-editing-thingy: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/4885334/CatalogProfileEditor.zip.
Oh yeah, and WYSIWYG will not work - too many dependencies on the Umbraco UI.
Cool, I'll take a look at that when I have a few minutes. And I assumed the RTE wouldn't work, so no worries. I think if you did do it, you'd have to put a limit on what data types you would support because not all of them would work. Could create a simple rte datatype to go with it that people can use instead if they want, but would be easy enough for them to create anyway.
True, that's a good idea - should be easy to do too.
