Kentico CMS for ASP.NET

Your Community, Your Rules, Your Branding


With Kentico, you can run your community and design it as you want. You're the one who defines the rules and who controls the content and discussions. Your community can be completely branded for your organization and it can be easily integrated with your main website.

Integrate with Facebook, Twitter, Live ID and Open ID

Although having your own community has its advantages, you may still want to integrate it with major social networks. Kentico allows you to authenticate visitors using their Facebook, Live ID and Open ID accounts so that they do not have to create just another name and password. You can also share the content from your Twitter account or Facebook page and display it on your website.

Enterprise Blogging

community site blogs

Kentico allows you to create any number of blogs for your staff and let them share their ideas with your audience. Unlike the usual free blogging platforms, Kentico provides full control over the published content, so you can set up a workflow/review process to avoid publishing classified information or content that is not aligned with your communication strategy. It also allows you to keep track of published content and moderate comments.

  4. You can design the community as you want
  5. You can develop custom features fully integrated with your website
  6. You don't depend on availability and up-time of external services
  7. You can integrate the community with other systems, such as CRM

... and you can always connect your community with Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites.
