Core plugins[edit]

Wolf CMS can be extended through its plug-in system.[6] A few of them, called core plugins, are available with the default installation.

  • Archive: provides a blog-style article setup to a Wolf CMS installation
  • Comments: provides commenting functionality
  • File Manager: simple file manager to provide a web interface for a public directory
  • Textile: to allow more flexibility for site administrators and content editors, provides a selectable page content filter system.
  • Markdown: provides a selectable page content filter system
  • Statistics: tracks all visitor information to provide simple statistics for a website
  • SQLite 3: provided for those administrators who want to use SQLite instead of MySQL as a database management system
  • Page not found: Allows administrators to customize their "page not found" page.


Wolf CMS requires[7] a webserver with PHP Version 5.3 or greater (with PDO support). MySQL 5 or greater, SQLite 3 or PostgreSQL 8.4.5. Wolf CMS assumes you use the Apache HTTP Server by default but is also known[8] to run on these HTTP servers as well:

The Wolf CMS wiki provides URL rewriting rules[9] for each of the listed http servers.
