Backend Views allows you to create backend pages (or "Views") that contain a list of section entries. The sorting, filtering and limiting functionalities are provided by the Data Sources engine, which means you can control what is shown on each view by editing the Data Source that's responsible for it.

Installation & Updating

Information about installing and updating extensions can be found in the Symphony documentation at http://symphony-cms.com/learn/.


Once the extension is enabled, it parses all the existing Data Sources whose type is one of the following:

For every compatible Data Source, an option is available in the Preferences to activate the respective View. Once activated, a view can be permanently accessed from the "Views" menu.
