ProcessWire Structure

Overview of ProcessWire’s structure in terms of pages, templates and fields. And an outline of the directory structure.

  • Pages

    Almost everything in ProcessWire is represented by a Page. The term “Page” refers to a webpage, though in ProcessWire it’s also much more. 
  • Templates

    Every Page has a template which defines the type of Page and what fields are present on pages using it. Every template may be used by one or more pages.
  • Fields

    Fields in ProcessWire are where the content is actually stored. Any field may be one of many storing content for a Page and its output.
  • File system

    An outline of ProcessWire’s file and directory structure, highlighting the locations where your site’s files go, where the core flies live, where to place modules, and more.
