Kentico Xperience 13 documentation and ASP.NET Core

Most documentation about running Xperience applications under ASP.NET Core can be found in a dedicated section: Developing Xperience applications using ASP.NET Core. The rest of the documentation still applies, but some code samples and scenarios might need slight modifications for Core projects.

Certain pages allow you to switch between Core and MVC 5 content using a selector located under the page heading.

All major differences between the MVC 5 and Core platforms are summarized in Migrating to ASP.NET Core.


Placing forms on pages


A developer needs to set up the page builder feature and prepare pages with editable areas before you can place forms onto pages.

On pages where the page builder feature is enabled, you can insert forms created with the form builder via the Form widget:

  1. Open the Pages application.
  2. Using the content tree, navigate to a page with the page builder feature enabled.
  3. Click on a blue plus button to insert a widget to the required location.
  4. Click on the Form widget to insert it into the page.
    Adding the Form widget to a page
  5. Select a form from the drop-down list. 
    • Only forms created on the current site are available.
  6. Click Save.

If you are searching for more detailed information about working with the page builder, please refer to Adding page content using widgets.

The selected form is now inserted on the page and ready to receive user submissions. You can browse the collected data on the Recorded data tab in the Forms application.
