Using django CMS


This is a new section in the django CMS documentation, and a priority for the project. If you’d like to contribute to it, we’d love to hear from you - join us on the #django-cms IRC channel on freenode or the django-cms-developers email list.

If you don’t have an IRC client, you can join our IRC channel using the KiwiIRC web client, which works pretty well.

The Using django CMS documentation is divided into two parts.

First, there’s a tutorial that takes you step-by-step through key processes. Once you’ve completed this you will be familiar with the basics of content editing using the system.

The tutorial contains numerous links to items in the reference section.

The documentation in these two sections focuses on the basics of content creation and editing using django CMS’s powerful front-end editing mode. It’s suitable for non-technical and technical audiences alike.

However, it can only cover the basics that are common to most sites built using django CMS. Your own site will likely have many custom changes and special purpose plugins which we cannot cover here. Nevertheless, by the end of this guide you should be comfortable with the content editing process using django CMS. Many of the skills you’ll learn will be transferable to any custom plugins your site may have.
