The authoring application in Hippo CMS is commonly referred to as simply "CMS". It is a web application that serves as a User Interface (UI) for the Content Repository and associated content management functionality.
The CMS application is built on an extensible plugin architecture. The community edition of Hippo CMS provides a default configuration of the CMS application which offers all the basic content management functionality and which can be extended in several ways:
- Hippo Plugins - standard (certified) plugins and community-maintained plugins.
- Hippo Enterprise Features - available to enterprise subscribers.
- Customization - from visual tweaks to development of custom functionality.
