Building websites with the KB-Suite

Track: Technical
Speaker: Carl Alex Friis Nielsen (The Royal Library)

Abstract

OpenCms is being used for several years now to maintain the website of the Danish Royal Library.

In this session we will introduce the component concept at the core of the KB-suite and show its versatility through how it is used on the Royal Library's web site.

You will see examples from very simple components such as plain text, over the not so simple "articles" to the complex collector configurations, slideshows etc. The examples will show how the components are used by the content producers, how they are rendered, a little bit on their implementation and how they are used at the Royal Library as building blocks for the web site.

In addition an overview of the modules in the KB-suite and the functionality they provide will be presented.
