Seems like a very obvious (and missing) feature, but maybe I'm missing something. If we have a generic "page" template how could an editor (as in someone not confident with using settings) just create a new single page?

E.g they may have singles for about, history, faq's etc but then want to add a new "page" for a one-off thing. Right now the developer has to create a new single in settings for them which is really clunky.

Just make a channel for your generic pages, and set the route to {slug}, that way your editors can create, delete, edit and disable any generic template pages without needing to touch the more involved areas of the Control Panel


To let users create template without touching settings. On the top of my mind, you can try a "matrix" field with multiple "block type". And using "channel" section to replace "single" section.
