Nearly all development power is allocated to that project.

This goes for many CMS'es. You will always have questions on the usage of specific parts of it.
Harm10 wrote:I can understand your wish for examples of extensions. We did that for all themes on the http://themes.pivotx.net/ (click on See it in action) for extensions this is harder to do and maintain.
For some of the extensions you can find examples on my own site

The same site also contains explanations about the PivotX structures.
Harm10 wrote:About snippets. You can put them everywhere that is the beauty of smarty tags. In the tpl and in the editor. Although in the latter case you could have weird effects when using a snippet with a lot of variables (and possibly html text in them). In such cases I always use the include tag and point to a tpl file created that contains all those complicated tag structures.
About copy/paste. I guess you mean pasting html? For plain content that shouldn't be needed if you use the wysiwyg editor but in specific cases the include tag could come in handy here too.

And if you think part of the documentation could do with an update please do not hesitate to suggest it!

My own site is entirely build in PivotX and I am not planning to change that yet.
