Structural overview

To get a grip on yeager's fundamental concepts and nomenclature, check out this overview of yeager's most important objects and their respective relations.

Content management flow

Content management flow
yeager users enter content into structural elements called Entry Masks. A Content Block is a collection of one or more of these Entry Masks. Content Blocks can be assigned to one of the Page's dedicated content areas. Finally, the Page is delivered to the visitor.

Page logic

Page concept
yeager handles an unlimited number of Sites, of which Pages are sub-objects. A Page's available content areas and eventual appearance are controlled by the Template that is assigned to the given Page. Dynamic content (in contrast to manually assigned content) can be fed into the Page by custom Page Extensions.

Application flow

Application flow
All visitors, authenticated and anonymous alike, are considered Users by yeager. A Page request first passes the security layer, which performs all relevant permission checks. After that, the Page logic and optional Page Extensions are executed, possibly assigning content to the Template. Finally, the template engine parses the Template and prepares the output that is eventually delivered to the User.
