As a System Administrator I would like to easily create static pages that contain the header, main navigation and footer.


A way to add simple static pages in ArchivesSpace that incorporate the existing repository header, main navigation and footer. Example pages might be FAQ, About Us, Search Help, etc. Static pages should be available for the staff UI and the public UI. The files that contain the static page content should allow embedded html code and perhaps could be located in the local plugin so that they can easy be maintained during upgrades.

A couple helpful AS members created a quick plugin to do this:, but it would be great to have it as part of the core code.

Additionally it would be nice to be able to have the option to easily add links to these static pages into the main navigation.
