add public website (and CMS kit) to existing application? #1144

  • ABP Framework version: v4.3.0
  • UI type: Angular
  • DB provider: EF Core
  • Tiered (MVC) or Identity Server Separated (Angular): no


is it possible to add "public website" and "cms kit" modules to an existing application that was initially created without the public website? Or do I have to create a completely new project? The latter would require lots of work merging the two projects, therefore I was hoping to find a possibility to add those modules.

Thanks and best regards Claus

    There is no good way to add public website/ cms kit to old application.

    You need to download the new template for comparison and copy the code to the old project

    For now, we don't support to add "Public Website" directly to an existing project via CLI & Abp Suite.

    I assume that you want to upgrade your project 4.3.0-xxx version also.

    Here are steps to achive this;

    1. Update your existing application by following migration guide, here is a link.
    2. Make sure your application is successfully upgraded.
    3. Create a new blank application (that includes "public website" project) with version with the same options with your existing application.
    4. Move the public website project from the newly created solution to your existing solution.

    With the 4 step, you can add public website project to your existing solution.

    For the Cms-Kit;

    Yes you can easily add the Cms-Kit module like all other modules. We are preparing documentation about the Cms-Kit module for now. In a short time, we will publish it.
