First of all, Merry Christmas everyone. Because someone in our company recently suggested to try out Craft CMS, I have played around with their online demo, and was pleasantly surprised. PW has most of the Craft features already, and much longer. Much of what they advertise as unique features is pretty much standard in PW-land (and open-source, too). However, there is a thing they call Matrix*, which (afaik) PW can't do (correct me if I'm wrong). In editing mode, you are able to select / add / re-arrange any kind of input field, however you want. With most input types, you can further customize it (e.g. place the content block left, center, right or full width). Perhaps that's not a feature every type of site needs - most of the time I guess having a fixed set of input fields and a certain predefined frontend element-order is enough. Another feature I found impressive is live preview. You get a split view: left the admin edit view, and right the frontend page. Though that is impressive, I found it rather something "nice to have" than essential. Now my question to all PW-devs: Is there some kind of technique / module that would enable the "Matrix" functionality in the PW-editor? I've purchased ProFields, and played around with it. I was hoping to construct something like the Matrix with either Multipliers, PageTables, or any of the other relatively new modules/fieldtypes. Perhaps I missed something crucial - I don't visit the PW forums as much as I used to - so if you know of any tutorial, module, PW profile etc. that would allow this kind of editorial flexibility, please share it. I know I could probably add custom WYSIWYG buttons. Or use Hanna Code. But that wouldn't come close to the nice UX the Matrix offers. * If you don't want to setup a Craft demo, here's a video (oh, and in case this sounds like an ad for Craft - it's not. I am just genuinely curious.)
