ContentBuilder provides content construction without replacing Joomla!®'s article system. In fact, ContentBuilder creates regular content items which you may use on your site just like any other content -- without the need for special plugins or core replacements. Additionally, you can use ContentBuilder to control user permissions for several actions, such as content access, content editing, article parameter settings, publishing, etc.
ContentBuilder provides a well-defined plugin infrastructure to enhance its capabilities:
- Content (image resizing, downloads or any other content plugin available)
- Form Elements
- Form Validation
- List Actions (select records and perform actions on them)
- Verification (think of payments and coupons)
- Themes (yes, even themes are pluggable)
- There is a variety of plugins that ship with ContentBuilder already, such as PayPal payment, image resizing (thumbnails), downloads and most common form validations.
ContentBuilder offers an easy-to-use integrated form builder. For our BreezingForms fans, you might be interested to know that it also integrates perfectly with ContentBuilder. If you are a customer already, you may download BreezingForms 1.7.5 and, if you prefer, use it instead of the built-in form builder. Just create your forms in BreezingForms as usual, and ContentBuilder will operate on your form data.
