User Generated Content

With User Generated Content support in Kentico, authorized users can create content on a live website, without using the administration interface. It allows you to create wiki-like site sections where visitors can share their expertise and knowledge with others.

Module Scenarios

The User Generated Content can be used in many scenarios, including:

  • Partner directory of your website – where partners can manage their own profile and add their own references.
  • Community site – where any community member can publish articles.
  • Business directory – where business owners can manage their profiles and contact details.
  • Traditional Wiki site – where site visitors can create and edit any content.
  • Intranet/project portal – where employees can add new content through the simplified interface without going to the administration section, such as news, blog posts, or Knowledge Base articles.
  • On-site editing of blogs.
