panx framework | Documentation | Extensions


Extensions can extend the panx-framework with new features, for example the PostManager. PostManager is one of official extension. PostManager includes templates files, css, classes etc. If you are asking, why PostManager is not the part of panx-framework by default, the answer is, that not every user will use it, so if you want to use it, you need install it additionally.

Extensions can be installed using panx-framework:

php panx-worker extension install {EXTENSION}
