Kentico CMS FAQ

What is the source code? What changes am I able to do without the source code?

There are two levels of source code:

  • Source code of the web project and the administration interface - this source code is provided with all licenses, including the trial version.
  • Full source code of all libraries and controls - this source code is provided only as a part of the the licenses with Source Code.

The full source code is not necessary for common use of the product - you can create flexible dynamic websites without modifying the full source code. The system is highly flexible by design and you typically do not need to modify the source code. However, if you want to be able to modify or enhance the core of the CMS engine, you may need the source code license. It also allows you to make changes or add features to the CMS engine that are not supported out of the box.
