Labyrinth::Plugin::Core - Core Plugin documentation for Labyrinth


Documentation overview for Labyrinth Core Plugins.

Labyrinth began life in 2002, with a small set of plugins to enable various features of web site management. The core set of plugins here are those most useful to provide a basic web site management system.

These plugins provide the functionality to manipulate core aspects of the data used within Labyrinth. Several of these plugins only provide administration features.

See the individual files for more details on how to use them.


As with the Labyrinth core package, additional files are needed to enable Labyrinth and any installed plugins to work correctly. These files consist of SQL, HTML template and configuration files, together with some basic CSS and Javascript files.

Please see the Labyrinth::Demo distribution for a set of these files.

However, these files are only the beginning, and to implement your website, you will need to update the appropriate files to use your layout design.


Although Labyrinth has long been in development, documentation has not been a priority. As such much of the documentation you may need to understand how to use Labyrinth is the code itself. If you have the inclination, documentation patches would be very gratefully received.

The Labyrinth website [1] will eventually feature a documentation site, wiki and other features which are intended to provide you with the information to use and extend Labyrinth as you wish.



The Core module provides some convience methods for the dispatch tables.
