Used Extensions


The SuluArticleBundle adds support for managing articles in Sulu. Articles can be used in a lot of different ways to manage unstructured data with an own URL in an admin-list. Most of the features, which can be used in pages, can also be used on articles - like templates, versioning, drafting, publishing and automation.


The SuluAutomationBundle provides a way to manages future tasks which can be scheduled for entities in the Sulu-Admin. For example schedule the publishing of a page to a specific datetime in the future.

To enable automated tasks use the command task:run manually in the terminal or in a cronjob. This tasks executes the pending automation tasks (see SuluAutomationBundle Installation Docs).
