Is it possible to stop the deluge of mails Plone generates for every
minor change? It's annoying at the moment, but I can see it becoming
unbearable once processing really ramps up...

During the last days I tried to figure out what Plone offers 
to create
rich pages. I tried out two products which seem to be very useful.

I just installed these two products giving additional layout 
options.> You can use these products by choosing new options 
from the "Add
new..." menu:

* Article

  An article is a page of text content which can be 
enriched with
  images, links and attached files. There are a 
couple of templates to
  choose from controlling how the images / links / 
attachments are
  arranged relative to the text.

  This is a somewhat limited approach but for simple 
documents it
  probably is a good choice. There is also the 
option to add new

  There is also a multiple article option but this 
seems not very
  useful to me.

  Homepage is

* Collage

for content. A
  collage gives you rows containing columns 
containing any type of

  This is a very powerful and flexible way to layout 
a content page
  giving you standard table oriented layout options. 
Of course it
  needs certainly more work and more concept than 
  Homepage is

There are more similar products but they seem to be outdated or
similar in function. These two products seem to be supported well,
however. I think they are a good choice for creating interesting
layouts. Article for simple things and Collage when you need full

Here you find two examples:

Now if you have some artistic talents you should be able to create
something fancy.
