Getting Started with Fuel CMS, Part 2
December 20, 2012 @ 11:07:08

PHPMaster.com has published the second article in their working with Fuel CMS series (part one here). This time he focuses on working with modules and creating self-contained blocks of reusable functionality.

In the previous article you learned about the basics of Fuel CMS: how to create views and simple pages. Most websites these days are not that simple though, they have a blog, a gallery, etc. In this part, I'll explain how Fuel CMS modules work and create a basic guestbook module to demonstrate.

He starts off by introducing the concept of a "module" and what kind of functionality that represents in the Fuel CMS ecosystem. Then he gets into the actual code, showing you how to create a model that connects to a "guestbook_comments" table and a controller to handle a request to "view" and "add" (save) them.

Getting Started with Fuel CMS, Part 1
December 13, 2012 @ 12:36:24

On PHPMaster.com today there's a new tutorial posted helping you get started with the Fuel CMS (not related to the Fuel PHP framework), a CodeIgniter-based content management system.

When you hear the abbreviation CMS, you probably think about Drupal, Joomla, and even WordPress. However, there are alternatives to those heavy hitters if you want something more lightweight or flexible. If you're look a simple administration interface, or integrate custom application code into the site, then I suggest exploring Fuel CMS. In this two-part series I'll discuss some concepts of Fuel CMS. In this part I'll talk about its installation and how to set up views. In the second part I'll talk about writing a Fuel CMS module.

This first of the two articles starts with an overview of the CMS, helps you get it installed (via github) and how to create some of the basics - a first page and a new view.
