The basic facility that should be provided by a WCM is the ability to add content, save it, and make it available for public usage.

In Day CQ5, these actions can be performed on the AUTHOR INSTANCE.


An Author Instance is the facility provided by Adobe Day CQ5 for the content providers. The content providers (otherwise called as Authors) will login to this instance, and manage pages.

Like how we we have contributor interface in Oracle WebCenter Sites / Fatwire, similarly we have an Author Instance in Day CQ5.

What can be done using this Author Instance?

Author can do the following actions like:

  • Create Content
  • Save Content
  • Edit Content
  • Move Content
  • Delete Content, etc.

    Thanks KK.
    Do you know if CQ5 has any kind of JumpStartKit or something similar OWCS have?
