Release Notes


This package contains basic CMS functions and extensibility for Lynicon CMS.  The package can be used to build a full CMS site but lack of caching and workflow aids mean it is not appropriate for medium to large sites as its efficiency will fall off as more than about 20 pages are added. These facilities will be provided in a paid-for module package to be released by the end of March 2017.

Lynicon CMS is designed to work with ASP.Net MVC.  The package assumes ASP.Net Identity is being used for user management.  The VS 2013/15 template for an MVC user accounts site is sufficient.

To set up CMS features it is necessary to further modify your project and database.  This can be done using Powershell tools installed with the package as follows:

After installing the Lynicon package:
- Supply a database connection string for the LyniconContent and DefaultConnection (or whatever name is used for the ASP.Net Identity database) connection string elements in web.config
- Build the solution
- Go to the Package Manager Console and run
 Initialize-LyniconAdmin -Password <admin password>

This is described in more detail at and other pages in the Getting Started section.
