    CMS pages are located in virtual directory structure containing folders and pages. Page contains folowing components:

    • General data. General data contains folowing data:
      • ID. Unique ID assigned to page (automatically if not specified). Can be used to access page directly by URL http://site_url/id. Request will be redirected to page actual URL.
      • URL. Page main relative URL within site. Real page URL will be http://site_url/subsite_path/page_relative_url. Subsite path for main site is empty, '/cms/srv/admin' - for CMS administration tools subsite, '/cms/srv/api' - for CMS RESTful API, each CMS plugin has it's own subsite.

      • Header options
    • Redirect from URL. List of site URL's to be redirected to this page main URL (optional).

    • Header Options. List of optional text lines such as ex. <meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache"/> to be included into page HTML header section (optional).
    • Keypair Data. Key pair data assigned to this page; CMS sample site uses this ability to distinguish news pages such as actual, archive, etc. ex. key="news", data="year=2014" (optional).

    • Does not have URL alias list
    • Content may have items with include file placeholders which must be replaced with real file path at the time when sample page content is applied to page.
