Hi guys

OK, I've made a plugin, restarted Conversant and activated my plugin via admin/system/preferences$section=Plugins

I'm familiar with the website fragment approach of Manila plugins whereby you create essentally a mini website within the plugin that's easily viewable via the web browser. How do I start making 'pages' for my Conversant plugin?

In my plugin's table I can see potential sub-tables for such a web site fragment but putting items in them doesn't make them available to the browser. For example, creating a new wp object in the 'pages' sub-table of the plugin doesn't do what I'd expect.

I'd appreciate a quick 2 minute tutorial on building a web site inside of a Conversant plugin.

BTW, I intend to document my exploits with Conversant in the off-chance that my stumblings will help someone else. For starters I'll create a 'how to get started with Conversant plugins' page in my blog.
