This handy addon has 2 main uses:

1) Creating content files
A new link will appear on your edit-content admin page which you can press to create a physical file which shows that content record/information.
The link will appear beside one of your "other" fields (it defaults to using the "other1" field, but you can change that via config options). You type the name of the file that you want to use for that content record into the field, and then press the link.
We uploaded this to one of our clients' sites and they're now happily pressing the create-file link all over the place and thereby creating loads and loads of search-engine friendly content pages with total ease.

2) Calling your contents within existing pages/panels
If you want to show a given content record inside an existing page/panel, then this will allow you to do so. You simply call the new function with the "type" as your argument, and it'll show the content record. There are various functions for this; one will show the entire record/format within your panel, and the other will just show the content's body (and there's another one for the title-only too).

Important Notes: This does not support the "translate" (languages) facility, and has only been proved on VP-ASP V6.x

I was the client Simon was talking about. I have been very pleased with all Simon's addons from BigYellowZone. Since I am a computer novice, I needed help creating links easily to different areas of my new Web Site. This will definitley help all who purchase it. It is worth the money.
I would not hesitate to recommend BigYellowZone. Either their customization service or their software.
