Consistent data structure
Manifesto was built with the notion that reliable, reusable, and predictable data modules are easier to work with.
Context-aware module architecture
Functionality is encapsulated into modules, and you have full control over how modules (and your content) interact with each other.
Integrated taxonomy and categorization tools
Tag your content with multiple categories for specific needs, or use a consistent scheme across the entire site.
Built-in User accounts
User management is built into the core of Manifesto, with complex permissions and a Role system for coordinating privilege levels.
Complex media management
Flexible media repository stores and manages a limitless variety of media assets (image, audio, video, download, etc).
Database query building
A comprehensive and easy-to-use database query class handles all your MySQL queries and result sets in a consistent manner.
User Input Sanitization
Scrub user-submitted data before processing, stripping out malicious code and (optionally) running HTML through HTMLTidy for cleanup.
Custom modules, and an always-available third_party directory offers an integrated and consistent way to incorporate external libraries.
A GUI when you want it, a script when you need it
Simple configurations are managed with a web interface, but you can always roll up your sleeves and write the complex code yourself.
The popular TinyMCE editor has been customized with Manifesto-specific features for media embedding and link management.
With the click of a button, access a wealth of data for troubleshooting your development, from the value of session variables to every single database query used to generate a page.
Integrated CSS Editor
Manage all of your stylesheets and media queries with our syntax-checking built-in Stylesheet Editor.
Programmatic form generation
A simple configuration array for constructing complex forms for editing and collecting data.
cron job support
Execute scripts for maintenance, cleanup, or general management on a recurring schedule, with a GUI for administration.
