Vivvo CMS Developer Documentation and Guide

The developer manual provides guidance on general coding, creating custom features and making modifications and other issues of importance to those involved with Vivvo CMS development and deployment of custom websites. It is mandatory (and helpful!) reading for anyone who wants to grasp the power of VTE and work outside the boundaries of out-of-the-box Vivvo installation and implementation of How-Tos and other ready-made resources.

Please note that this document is constantly evolving. This copy represents the state at the release of version 4.5
