Item based pages - avoiding having to type in text that won´t be used anywhere

Using itembased pages, you are required to type in pagename on creating an item, even if it is not relevant or used anywhere. This is confusing and "limiting".

As a User Experience, it does not make sense to type in text that wont be used anywhwere. In this case, the title of the item is a dropdown field, and it would make sense

to select from that dropdown, or even better - just go straight to the next screen.

A simple fix would proably be to skip this window all together. It´s not neccisary as I see it, and it´s not making it easier for the user, and it limits the flexibility of what we build for our clients, and it´s usability,

It is to ensure that the page has a name in the tree.

Ok, but that is "only" an issue if the page is a normal page - not itembased. Skip normal pages all together :) Or at least, if some other field is assigned as title - that should be the

one being prompted on creating.
