WonderCMS documentation

Use the quick links on your right to start reading up on WonderCMS.
Start with some simple do's and don'ts listed below.

✓ DO

  1. Change the default password and login URL immediately after setting up WonderCMS.
  2. Always backup before updating.
  3. Install themes and plugins only from sources you trust.
  4. Check how to turn on "better security mode" - for Apache and NGINX users.
  5. Create functions.php instead of editing index.php.
  6. If you are running WonderCMS on a local machine, install a certificate to avoid the persistent "Update" message error.


  1. Don't edit index.php.
    • Important because the built in one click updater overwrites index.php. Any changes made to index.php WILL BE LOST after clicking "Update".
  2. WonderCMS supports running JavaScript anywhere. Be careful not to paste random/malicious JavaScript code.
  3. Don't upload random SVG files.
    • WonderCMS supports uploading SVG's which could also contain JavaScript code.
    • Don't get tricked into uploading malicious SVG's. If in doubt, avoid uploading any SVG file extension.
