CMS Kit Pro Module

This module extends the open-source CMS Kit module and adds additional CMS (Content Management System) capabilities for your application.

This module currently available only for the MVC / Razor Pages UI. While there is no official Blazor package, it can also work in a Blazor Server UI since a Blazor Server UI is actually a hybrid application that runs in an ASP.NET Core MVC / Razor Pages application.

The following features are provided by the open source CMS Kit module:

  • Page management system to manage dynamic pages with dynamic URLs.
  • Blogging system to create publish blog posts with multiple blog support.
  • Tagging system to tag any kind of resource, like a blog post.
  • Comment system to add comments feature to any kind of resource, like blog post or a product review page.
  • Reaction system to add reactions (smileys) feature to any kind of resource, like a blog post or a comment.
  • Rating system to add rating feature to any kind of resource.

And the following features are provided by the CMS Kit pro version:

  • Newsletter system to allow users to subscribe to newsletters.
  • Contact form system to allow users to write message to you.
