The Right Stuff
Symphony's features strike a perfect balance: the power to do everything you need, the intelligence to do only what you need.
The best interfaces are the ones you barely notice. Symphony’s back end is all about workflow, dispensing with the proverbial bells and whistles and focusing on helping you complete the task at hand.
The clean, almost minimal design of Symphony’s admin interface keeps the focus on your work, not ours. Layouts and interactions are kept straightforward and consistent. Easy to learn and easy to use, the UI becomes second nature in no time at all.
Click on a row to select it. Drag and drop to easily reorder your pages. Add and reorder fields in place while modeling your content types. Symphony’s admin interface aims to make even the simplest tasks a little bit simpler.
Work more efficiently by managing multiple entries, sections, pages, or extensions right from the index view. Quickly change your entries’
selectvalues, install and uninstall extensions, and even delete items.
Symphony puts an entire suite of tools at your fingertips for debugging front-end pages. Check source code (from XML to XSLT to output), dynamically test XPath selectors, review build and load statistics. You’ll wonder how you ever developed a website without it.
The power of jQuery
Symphony’s admin interface employs the widely-used jQuery library, making it a cinch for developers to customize and extend.
