Introduction to Addons

There are seven major components in PHPFusion.

  • Core
  • Infusions
  • Panels
  • Themes
  • User Fields
  • BBCodes
  • Widgets

In PHPFusion the core are the main resource and provide 'tool facilities' to the other components to work in one unified environment. At core, we have divided into 3 categories, where you will be able to find it in the PHPFusion Development section of this wiki.

Why Addons

Simply put, it is for custom content. All your modifications and custom content should be taking place in all other sections that is non core. This means that you must never edit core PHPFusion files to extend your functionality to your site. When you do that, you will be unable to update to the new version of the CMS when it is available because it will overwrite all your files. Therefore, you should always use the PHPFusion APIs or better still the SDK if provided. Each plugin can extend your site to whatever the desired extend you may want it to be, and is also always separated from each other's while sharing the same PHPFusion ecosystem provided by the core. Overall, PHPFusion addons allows you to greatly extend the features and functionality of PHPFusion. We will examine each of them in the later chapter.
