Actually you can easily manage CMS page from an admin panel. However, you are able to insert blocks in it. For example we have 2 cms pages: contacts and FAQ, these pages include block with banner which appears on each of these 2 pages, but content for this block is based on some PHP code. And if block content somehow depends on the page, we have to use following method.

function getCurrentCmsPage() {
$pageId = Mage::getBlockSingleton('cms/page')->getPage()->getIdentifier();
return $pageId;
