documentation for the dotCMS Content Management System

Rules allow webmasters (or permissioned users), to configure responsive front end behavior based on a variety of visitor conditions. Rules can be set up to both support personalization for individual users, and to identify and serve content to different types of users based on differing characteristics of site Visitors and Visitor behavior during a session.

Rules can also be added to Pages. For more information, see the Adding Rules to Pages documentation.
