The Core is quite complex and provides a lot of features that are either available on their own or are provided as features that need to be implemented by an app. The major features are:
- The built-in CMS, including the box and menu system.
- An article system that works similar to a blog software like WordPress. Unlike the WoltLab Suite Blog that focuses on user-generated content, the article system is from the ground up designed to be used by the staff/administrators only, with an optional feature for user submissions.
- The admin panel and its sophisticated package system are provided by the Core, this also includes the user management system.
- A lot more features that are available as barebones and require an app to implement them, enabling us to massively share code between apps.
If you're looking forward to run the Core on its own, the CMS and the article system are the major features to look at.
