An In-Depth Look at the Kentico CMS Features


Content editing

Kentico CMS provides a powerful content editing suite that allows users to edit content, preview content, organise site structure and manage an array of useful modules.

WYSIWYG editor

The fully integrated WYSIWYG editor comes with basic or advanced formatting, uploading of images, plus the ability to link to other pages or external files and sites.

Content tree and content organisation

The content is organised into a tree hierarchy which represents the sitemap and navigation structure.

Page templates

Content created by web designers can be re-used by content editors for several pages with the same layout. Page templates can either contain editable regions where content editors enter the text, or they can display structured documents.

Structured content

Custom document types, fields, content/design separation

You can define custom types of documents stored in the Kentico CMS repository. Files in Kentico CMS can be managed in the same way as any other document. You can even leverage advanced content management features such as workflow and versioning or multilingual support for files. It allows you to display the information in several ways (catalogue preview, short description, full technical details, etc.) and to keep data in a standard database structure.

File management

Built-in image editor

Content authors can edit uploaded images through the web-based interface. The editor supports basic operations, such as re-size, trim, rotate, convert or greyscale.

Built-in image resizing support

Kentico CMS allows you to display images resized to given width, height or maximum size, without having to use an image editor. The resized image can be stored on the disk so that it needn't be resized again.

Media libraries, music and video

If you need to publish large files such as music, video or application installers, you can use media libraries. Media libraries allow you to work with content uploaded to your server and publish it on your website. The media gallery also allows you to play video and music online. You can extend it with your own viewer controls for custom formats.



Workflow allows you to manage the process of content creation and modifications. Kentico CMS enables web masters to prepare customisable workflows or approval processes for different document types and site sections.

Workflow notification

Appropriate users are automatically notified by email when a new document is waiting for their approval. The document can be edited, approved or rejected by any user who is authorised for the given workflow step.


Kentico CMS optionally stores all previous versions of the document so that the editors can view them, compare versions side-by-side and roll back to a previous version.

Content locking

When workflow and versioning is used, you can also turn on content locking. It requires users to ‘check out’ the document for editing. Other users cannot edit the checked-out document at the same time, which avoids two people working on the same document concurrently.

Multiple languages

If you need to build international websites in multiple languages, Kentico CMS is the right choice. It allows you to organise multi-language content and switch between different languages of the same document in the editing interface and on the live site.


Widgets allow editors to add dynamic or interactive content such as online forms, latest news, subscriptions, customise page layouts or add side columns.



Kentico CMS supports both forms and Windows authentication. You can have the system import user accounts from a Windows domain or Active Directory automatically. Moreover, you can write your own authentication provider that will import user information from an external database.

Authorization (permissions)

You can grant user permissions for particular modules and for particular documents or site sections. It means you're not limited to some predefined roles.

Content personalization

You can also control the access rights of site visitors. You can create secured site sections that are only accessible by registered members. The members can be displayed with personalised navigation and content based on their permissions, so you can display, for example, different menu items and content to silver and gold partners in the partners section of your website.

External authentication

Kentico CMS contains a fully-customisable authentication system that allows you to authenticate users against any authentication service. Kentico CMS supports out-of-the-box integration with the following authentication services: Live ID, Open ID and Facebook Connect.


Websites built with Kentico CMS for ASP.NET offer a rich set of features in combination with unmatched flexibility.

Site structure

Site design, page layout and navigation are completely customisable. Even if you find some standard feature limiting for your needs, you can easily enhance it with custom .NET code or replace it with a third-party component.

Out-of-the-box features

Kentico CMS supports the following features out-of-the box:
  • You can run multiple websites from a single code and database installation
  • It supports XHTML, CSS layout and W3C WAI (web accessibility) standards
  • Friendly (smart) URLs and search engine optimization (SEO) support
  • Full text search in both database content and uploaded files

Flexible navigation

All controls are XHTML compatible with drop down menus: CSS list menu, tree menu, dynamic sitemap and breadcrumb navigation.
