Overview

Mezzanine is a powerful, consistent, and flexible content management platform. Built using the

Django
_ framework, Mezzanine provides a simple yet highly extensible architecture that encourages diving in and hacking on the code. Mezzanine is
BSD licensed
_ and supported by a diverse and active community.

In some ways, Mezzanine resembles tools such as

Wordpress
_, providing an intuitive interface for managing pages, blog posts, form data, store products, and other types of content. But Mezzanine is also different. Unlike many other platforms that make extensive use of modules or reusable applications, Mezzanine provides most of its functionality by default. This approach yields a more integrated and efficient platform.

Support

To report a security issue, please send an email privately to

[email protected]
_. This gives us a chance to fix the issue and create an official release prior to the issue being made public.

For all other Mezzanine support, the primary channel is the

mezzanine-users
_ mailing list. Questions, comments, issues, feature requests, and all other related discussions should take place here.

If you're certain you've come across a bug, then please use the

GitHub issue tracker
_, however it's crucial that enough information is provided to reproduce the bug, ideally with a small code sample repo we can simply fork, run, and see the issue with. Other useful information includes things such as the Python stack trace generated by error pages, as well as other aspects of the development environment used, such as operating system, database, and Python version. If you're not sure you've found a reproducible bug, then please try the mailing list first.

Finally, feel free to drop by the

#mezzanine IRC channel
_ on
Freenode
, for a chat! Lastly, communications in all Mezzanine spaces are expected to conform to the
Django Code of Conduct
.
