Web developers love ProcessWire

Building websites with a CMS has never been more simple and fun

// Render your site’s primary navigation
echo $pages->get('/')->children->each('<li><a href={url}>{title}</a>');
// Find buildings: built before 1950, 10+ floors, sort by height
$pages->find('template=building, year<1950, floors>=10, sort=height');
// Output field “headline” when present or “title” if not
echo '<h1>' . $page->get('headline|title') . '</h1>';
// Get “email” field from /contact/ page and use it in link
<a href='mailto:<?= $pages->get('/contact/')->email ?>'>Email</a>
// Output first “images” field item on page at 90px width
<img src='<?= $page->images->first->width(90)->url ?>'>
// Set “headline” field value on page and save to database
$page->setAndSave('headline', 'Hello world');

Every bit of content in your site is never more than 1-line of code away. It doesn’t matter how large or small your site is, with ProcessWire all your content is connected, making it fast and easy to find, and incredibly simple to access, output and manipulate.

All fields in ProcessWire are custom fields that you easily define and edit in the admin. You can create as many of them as you want, and of any type. You can even bundle them in repeatable groups called Repeater fields. ProcessWire is built to adapt to your content needs.

Every field has a type and there are dozens of different types. It’s all here—text, rich text, numbers, files, images, multi-language, dates, page references, custom repeatable groups, and on and on… plus you can easily add more, since they are plugins/modules!

I just love the easy and intuitive ProcessWire API. ProcessWire rocks!” —Jens Martsch, Web developer

Clients love ProcessWire

“The end client and designer love the ease at which they can update the website. Training beyond how to log in wasn’t even necessary since ProcessWire’s default interface is straightforward.” —Jonathan Lahijani

    “Indeed, if ProcessWire can be considered as a CMS in its own right, it also offers all the advantages of a CMF (Content Management Framework). Unlike other solutions, the programmer is not forced to follow the proposed model and can integrate his/her ways of doing things.” —Guy Verville, Spiria Digital Inc.
