The type of features expected from a community experience are well known.  Community features are available as community functions.  Essentially, they are one or more pages pre-wired to implement a community feature which requires more than simply adding a component to a page in author mode.  They are the building blocks used to define the structure of a community site template from which community sites are created.

Once a community site is created, content may be added to the resulting pages using the standard AEM authoring mode.

A number of community functions are immediately available as seen in the community functions console.  More community functions will be delivered in future releases and custom functions may also be created.

Pre-built Functions

Following is a brief description of the functions delivered with AEM Communities.  Each function is comprised of one or more AEM pages containing Communities components wired together into a feature that is easily incorporated into a community site template.

A community site template provides the structure for a community site including login, user profiles, notifications, messaging, site menu, search, theming, and branding features.

Title and URL Settings

Title and URL are properties common to all community functions.

When a community function is added to a community site template or added when modifying the structure of a community site, the function's dialog opens so that the Title and URL may be configured.

Configuration Function Details

chlimage_1
  • Title
    (required) The text which appears in the menu of features for the site
  • URL
    (required) The name used to generate the URI.  The name must conform to the naming conventions imposed by AEM and JCR.

For example, using the site created from following the Getting Started tutorial, if

and the menu link for the page appears as :

Groups Function

אזהרה:

The groups function must not be the first nor the only function in a site's structure or in a community site template.

Any other function, such as the page function, must be included and listed first.

The groups function provides the ability for community members to create sub-communities within the community site in the publish environment.

Depending on settings when the Groups function is included in a community site template, the groups can be public or private and one or more community group templates may be configured to provide a choice of templates when the community group is actually created (such as from the publish environment).  A community group template specifies which Communities features are created for the group pages, such as forums and calendars.

When a community group is created, a member group is dynamically created for the new group, to which members can be assigned or join.  For more information, see Managing Users and User Groups.

As of Communities feature pack 1, community groups are created in the author environment using the Communities Sites' Groups console, and may be created in the publish environment when enabled.

  • Allow Publish Creation

    Default is checked.

AEM Blueprint

chlimage_1

The community function is a mini site comprised of one or more pages, pre-wired for inclusion into a community site including login, user profiles, notifications, messaging, site menu, search, theming, and branding features.  Once the function is created, it is possible to open the function in author edit mode and customize the page and/or component settings.

Since the community function is implemented as a live copy of a blueprint, it is possible to rollout changes made to a function which affects all community site pages created from the community site template or community group template that included the function.  It is also possible to disassociate a page from its parent blueprint in order to make page-level modifications.

See also Multi Site Manager.

chlimage_1

On the Thumbnail panel, an image may be uploaded to display in the Community Functions console.

Open Community Function

chlimage_1

Select the Open Community Function icon to enter author edit mode for authoring the page content and modifying the configuration of the feature component(s).

Configuring Components

A community function is implemented as a Live Copy of an AEM Blueprint, details of which are documented under Multi Site Manager.

It is possible to not only author page content, but to configure components.

If configuring a component on a page of a created community site, it may be necessary to cancel inheritance in order to configure the component.  Inheritance should be re-established when configuration is completed.

For configuration details, visit Communities Components for authors.

Edit Community Function

chlimage_1
