Component, Function and Feature Essentials

AEM Communities features require site visitors to become members and login to the community site before being able to post content. Thus, community site templates, from which a community site is created, are designed to include a login feature as well as user profiles, messaging, search, moderation, and translation.

A community site will support members creating community groups when the community groups function is included in the selected community site template.

Following are links to essential information for Communities components, functions and features.
