FusionCMS is currently in an open beta state and under heavy active development.

Helpers

FusionCMS includes a variety of global "helper" PHP functions. Many of these functions are used by the core itself; however, you are free to use them in your own themes and modules.

There are a number of utility helper functions packaged with Laravel that may be used in your own application or theme on FusionCMS. In addition, FusionCMS comes with a number of it's own helper functions to help streamline development.
