Page type modules can be considered as separate applications. This module type is used to add missing features like a guestbook or an image gallery to WebsiteBaker. WebsiteBaker ships with the following pre installed page type modules.
Additional page type modules can be downloaded from the official WebsiteBaker Add-Ons Repository .
One needs to install page type modules via the WB Backend: Add-Ons -> Modules -> Install Module. After the installation, you will find a new entry in the page menue: Pages -> Add Page -> Type. Page type modules can be used by adding a new page or section with the new page type.

Additional code snippets (e.g. to display News entries on pages other than the news page itself) are provided via the WebsiteBaker Add-Ons Repository .
Code snippets are installed via the WB backend: Add-Ons -> Modules -> Install Module. All functions contained in the include.php file of the code snippet can be invoked via the index.php file of your template or from a page/section of type code.
