CMS modules

The bluetronix CMS modules provide web applications like a shopping cart system, a guest book or photo album. Installation is easy by using the modules manager. All modules were created by bluetronix software and showcase the flexibility and capability of this software.

Basics about modules – dynamic pages

The modules consist of various templates, PHP scripts and a database.

Those web sites are usually HTML pages that contain insertion marks. The PHP script substitutes those marks with data from a database.

Upon loading a web site, PHP scripts will be executed. These scripts retrieve data from a database and substitutes any marks in the HTML code with real content.

 

With bluetronix software all three elements of this process can be edited. Create a HTML page with the  Editor, edit the PHP script using the Settings in the editor and change of the databases by using the  Database management or the  Database editor.

 

You can generate your own creative design using the  CSS editor. Data sets can contain HTML fields, which can be edited with the  Editor.

 

With bluetronix software you can create advanced web applications and are still able to conveniently change any content by using editors.

Multiple use of modules

The same module can be activated multiple times by selecting  Module from the main menu. Just make sure you choose different directories for your installations.

 

This list shows examples, why you would want to install multiple instances of modules:

 

Multi-language shopping cart systems: One system using an English input mask and a database format in dollars while another system is using a German input mask and a database format in Euro.

One shopping cart system for consumers without prices and one for resellers with prices.

Photo albums for different topics.

Discussion forums with different categories

Multiple secure areas, requiring registration for each.

Combining different modules

It is also possible to combine multiple modules, which enables you to construct complex interfaces without the need for time consuming programming.

 

Examples of module combination:

 

Shopping cart system with a secure area – a user needs to register first before they are able to submit an order
