WF-Channel V2.00b RC
WF-Resources V1.00

This version of WF-Channel is the final release candidate to iron out any remaining bugs, errors and final changes before a full production version.

This version has changed massively compared to the previous version and much of the code base has been split and moved into a separate module, but rather than a massive jump with the version number I have decided to increment it by one value instead.

WF-Resource is a WF-Framework (sorry about this) and will be used by many or the newer modules currently being written at this moment. This will help keep module sizes down and easier to update in the future. I normally hate frameworks, as most of this should be core but I have had no choice if i wish to progress further with the WF-Modules.

What is WF-Channel?

WF-Channel is a module to display ‘Misc’ pages on your website. This module is not a replacement for a content module, though it could be easily
used as such if required.

WF-Channel can also display a 'Link to US' and 'Refer' pages.
