Producing output on the front-end

Topics on using the ProcessWire API to render output on the front-end of your site with your template files.

  • Output strategies

    Template files receive content and how they deliver it to the user is what we call the output strategy. There are a few different options and this section covers each in detail.
  • URL segments and routing

    URL segments enable your page’s template file to become a URL router or controller to act upon different URLs sent to it.
  • Include & bootstrap

    Use ProcessWire’s API in other PHP apps and shell scripts… It’s easy!
  • Front-end editing

    Edit pages on the front-end of your site with the core PageFrontEdit module.
  • Pagination

    This module renders navigation for pagination. Such navigation usually appears as a list of "1, 2, 3, next…" links at the bottom of search results.
