Sculpt Your Online Channels
Magnolia is the sculpting tool that makes sure your artwork is in perfect shape. It makes designing stunning, coherent pages a snap. And: it enforces your brand identity.
Design Pages Fast with the STK
Chisel your sculptures identically: the Standard Templating Kit (STK) is a complete, out-of-the-box website layout that lets you apply the same layout to any number of pages, thus marrying design and functionality. It gives you an extensive set of ready-made functionality that can easily be extended for custom designs and content output. These are some of the templates available in the STK: home page, Section page, News, Events Calendar, Article and Image Gallery...
Create Varied Components
Make sure smaller works of art also have the same shape: the STK includes ready-made templates for components, for example fancy teasers, text & image, HTML5 video, teasers, stages, tabbed content, latest events, latest news, commenting, forum, RSS aggregation, category cloud, contact details from address book and more.
Stick to Your Identity
Make everything you craft look like it is from the same artist: Building your site with Magnolia means that you gain a lot of freedom and flexibility, but can also effortlessly keep up a consistent corporate identity and branding.
Everybody should be able to view your art: Magnolia templates follow the guidelines of W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG2m) as well as Germany's BITV (Barrierefreie Informationstechnik-Verordnung).
Make Use of WebDAV
Don’t make it harder on yourself: Magnolia includes a WebDAV interface. This provides an easy entry path for users to create, edit and manage templates on the Magnolia server as though they were residing on their local file system. It also eliminates the need for any Java or system-specific knowledge.
Set your work free: Our Templating Kit is written in Freemarker, which provides new possibilities and makes the development of templates faster and easier than using JSP. However, JSP remains fully supported and you can even mix and match both templating languages.
Let our code highlighting be your assistant artist: Magnolia CMS assists administrators and designers when editing templates with code highlighting and line numbering.
Choose Your Templating Engine
Use another brush if necessary: site templating by default is done in JSP or Freemarker and allows unlimited page and components designs. The templating engine is pluggable, so you can replace it with other implementations, if you’d like to.
Speed up Templating
Pimp your art studio: The Magnolia CMS tag library allows developers to customize the authoring environment and create templates in a fast, efficient and re-usable way. Magnolia also supports third-party tag libraries such as JSTL to minimize the amount of code developers have to write.
