Developing Communities

Overview

AEM Communities simplifies the creation and customizaton of community features such as forums, user groups, blogs, Q&A, calendars, comments, reviews, voting, ratings, and assignments. These features result in user generated content (UGC) being entered in the publish environment.

The foundation of a community site is the social component framework (SCF). Creation of a community site begins with the selection of a community site template that is composed of community functions.
