We recently added a couple of new features to the CMS that was required for the Static Pages plugin. After we implemented them we realized that they add a new level of flexibility to the CMS and even change the way how the components are developed and used!

In the blog post Getting started with static pages we explained how to use the static pages and menus. We have added new features since that post and now it's time to talk about the Placeholders and Content Blocks.

Once upon a time there were two boys - Sam and Aleksey. They lived in different countries, thousands miles away from each other. They didn't know about each other, but there was something common between them - they wanted the world to be simpler. One day they met online. That's how OctoberCMS has started.

Today we published the second functional part of the Static Pages plugin - the menu management. This feature allows you to define as many menus as you need, and create menu items that refer to static pages, URLs, blog categories and so on.

So far we have been focusing our effort on development tools. But this doesn't mean that we have forgotten about non-technical users of the platform. That's why we are building a new plugin, simply called Pages.
Today we want to tell you about the next big feature we've planned. This feature is mostly for developers, but it's difficult to underestimate its impact on developers building for clients.

It's a big day for the OctoberCMS community because today we're publishing the second part of the marketplace - the themes!

Theming is the essential part of the future OctoberCMS ecosystem. The theme marketplace was in our plans from the very beginning. Authors could have seen the Add Theme button in their Account home page for a long time. Clicking the button would show the "Coming soon" alert message. Today we are happy to announce that the theming support is really coming soon!
