What content is understood

The content parser offered in this little framework is capable of understanding markdown files with/with-out front-matter.

Markdown files are forced to have .md extension and with UTF-8 character encoding.

If the front matter is set it must start with --- and end with --- on their respective lines, like

Order: 0
PageTitle: Welcome to Pronto
TOCTitle: Welcome
MetaDescription: This is Pronto, the CMS almost "ready".
MetaTags: pronto, cms

This is the page **static text**


Actually some metadata contained in the front-matter section of the Markdown files are used inside the framework:

  • Order - This is the order that is used in the left rail TOC, the page is left out of the TOC if this is blank
  • PageTitle - The title used in the HTML title for the page and in search results
  • TOCTitle (optional) - The title used in the left rail Table of Contents for this page. Use this is the title needs to be different than PageTitle
  • MetaDescription - The meta description for this page which helps for search
  • MetaTags - Further tags for this page again for search
