Learning FUEL CMS Blog Series
In late October we open-sourced FUEL CMS, our CodeIgniter-based content management system. Now that it's been roaming around on the intertubes, we thought we'd provide some insight into how we, at Daylight Studio, use FUEL. To accomplish this, we will by writing a series of blog posts centered around developing a 'typical' small company website.
We will break up the blog series into the following 6 parts:
- PART 1: Creating Static Pages, Layouts and Blocks
- PART 2: Creating Menus
- PART 3: Creating Modules
- PART 4: Using the CMS
- PART 5: Testing Your Site
- PART 6: The Client Handoff
What You Will Need to Get Started
- An installed version of the 0.91 branch of FUEL CMS from GitHub. For installation instructions, you can view the README file or the user guide installation instructions. The 0.91 branch uses CodeIgniter 2.0 and contains a demo site of a fictitious company named WidgiCorp that we will use in this tutorial.
- A basic understanding of the CodeIgniter framework
- A general knowledge of HTML and CSS
- An Apache server with PHP 5+ and .htaccess with mod_rewrite
