The Sector guide provides step-by-step guidance for your Sector Projects.

What is Sector?

Sector is an open source CMS Drupal distribution that is ready to go and easy to administer. We’ve used the best Drupal tools on the market and preconfigured authoring tools, content types, and file management across a wide range of use cases - launching your site has never been so fast, efficient, and easy.

Our aim is to provide a sustainable and maintainable New Zealand distribution that meets standards, performance, and compliance benchmarks and supports a wide range of site architectures and navigation patterns. 

What is Drupal?

Drupal is an open source content management software for websites and applications. What sets it apart from other products is its flexibility and modularity. Its core architecture enables:

  • Content editors to publish versatile and structured content
  • Developers to contribute add-on modules and connect to other applications.

What is a Drupal distribution?

A Drupal distribution bundles Drupal core with a selection of contributed and custom modules to cater towards a specific use case or industry.

Why Sector? 

Sector is a full-featured distribution to create small to enterprise sized websites. These websites allow editors to organise large amounts of content into a flexible and structured architecture, and sitebuilders to manage content types, meta data, and displays. 

The Sector components work together as a single entity for creating, publishing, and managing content by sharing a common toolkit that allows versatility within a consistent base framework.

Sector provides:

  • A responsive base theme
  • A set of preconfigured content types, displays, and views
  • A set of preconfigured authoring tools
  • A set of preconfigured user roles and permissions
  • Sample content to showcase the available components.
