Features and Functionality

Sector is built on a flexible framework and is packed with features - we’ve used the best tools on the market and preconfigured authoring tools, content types, and file management across a wide range of use cases.

On the outside

Responsive, mobile-first frontend

Launch your mobile-first projects on the web with the 'world's most popular' front end component library, Bootstrap. 

With mobile styles and a flexible grid system, you can quickly build responsive designs that render with robust consistency across browsers and devices. Tapping into the large international Bootstrap community gives you access to an extensive pool of online training materials, code examples, techniques, and approaches. 

Your content in the spotlight

Pages, news, and resources - Sector provides solutions for both hierarchical and data-driven content. 

Engage your audience with rich media

Images, audio, and video - Sector helps you bring your content to life.

On the inside 

Content management and authoring tools

Contextual links, configurable content views, and a WYSIWYG content editor that works.  

Media and File management

Media adds advanced file and media management to your site.

Media provides a media library and file management system with preconfigured file types - documents, images, video - all with preconfigured metadata fields. Whether it's for captions, transcripts, or copyright, if you can think of a metadata field, Sector probably has it.

Publishing workflow

From simple to advanced - a customisable editorial publishing workflow.

In Drupal 8, workflow and content moderation is in core. Configurable workflows allow you to have a published version of your content, work on a copy, save it as a draft, and queue the draft for review before it is published. Plus, you can manage permissions for who is allowed to do what in this process. 


Create your own webforms and manage your submissions. 

The Drupal Webform module is one of our Sector favourites! Create your own forms and surveys and customise the emails they are sent in. Export results to your preferred spreadsheet application or use the extensive API to create custom reports and integration points.
