Use Mura's content iterator to output any folder, collection, query or feed in a looping output, while applying custom styling and html markup to the display. Mura iterators make managing content and users simpler by providing direct access to objects and their properties as well as offering a number of "helper" methods
Use Mura's custom variables scope, referenced simply as "$" , to retrieve the values of site settings and content attributes, inspect and react to the current user's browser session, and display Mura's content objects including forms, feeds and more.
Extend Mura's display functionality with custom methods which can be used directly in the admin content editor or wired into the logic of the theme's display templates.

Learn to display dynamic content within the markup of your themed pages, using Mura's $.content and $.siteConfig methods to output almost anything at any point in the template workflow.
Take advantage of Mura's built in display regions structure to insert editable content at any place in the markup or layout of your templates.

Marketing Automation is great for users who enter your database via online methods such as landing pages or email, but what about people you meet in person?
When starting a new Mura project, or getting started with Mura in general, deploying a site bundle is a great first step. A Mura CMS site bundle can be created from any existing site (see Part 1: Create a Bundle), and contains all of the files and data needed to completely replicate the source site, including all of the pages, plugins, site members, theme files, images and other assets.
One of Mura's most robust features is the automated "Site Bundle" system. A Mura site bundle is a specially-formatted .zip file with a collection of content and file assets used to duplicate an entire Mura CMS site. A site created from a site bundle includes all of the content and design aspects of the original, including all pages, theme files and other assets, with settings to control what actually gets imported when the bundle is deployed.
