Chapter 5. Working with CMS Data

Your job as a CMS developer is to make managing and publishing information as easy as possible. This challenge is compounded by the fact that the information can take many forms on the Web. There are as many solutions to this problem as there are CMSs, each with its own pros and cons.

One of the real benefits of developing with a framework like Zend Framework is that you don't have to worry about much of the low-level application logic.

In this chapter, we will follow this model to develop a flexible content management API that the entire CMS will use.
