A GOOD and versatile news manager needed

I already have identified this as an additional functionality.

If you want an explicit excerpt that would be an addional WYSIWYG editor field with standard image browing like the main content.

I don't think that these keywords present an issue, as the page really is a "product" or "news" item. Additionally get_i18n_header() removes "technical" keywords starting with "_"

With I18N Search you would tag all blog posts with "posts" and then the different posts with "news", "blog", ... Searching with tags="posts" would show all posts, searching with tags="posts news" would show news, etc.
I18N, I18N Search, I18N Gallery, I18N Special Pages - essential plugins for multi-language sites.
