This is a list of modules for Magnolia CMS. A module is an independent component that performs a particular task or is used to package content and functionality. The system itself is built of modules; AdminCentral, Document Management System and Workflow are all modules.
If you want to extend Magnolia CMS with your own functionality, we recommend that you create a custom module. You do not need to start from scratch. There are some prepared abstract classes which can be used to create a new module. It's common practice to implement and extend one or more of these prepared abstract module classes.
Enterprise modules require an Enterprise Edition license. You can download these modules from Magnolia Store.

Take a backup of your system before you install a module. Uninstalling a module is not as simple as removing the .jar file. Modules add new configuration nodes, modify existing configuration and may change content. We recommend trying out new modules in a test environment first.
A module consist of a JAR file and potentially other dependencies as JAR files. Modules are responsible for updating their own content and configuration across versions. Be sure to keep one single version of each module and its dependencies.
- Stop the application server where you deploy the module.
- Copy the JAR file(s) into
WEB-INF/libdirectory inside your webapp. Location of this directory depends on the application server.
Magnolia CMS update wizard will start.
The update wizard installs the JAR file and reports results.
Uninstalling a module involves removing the module JAR from
/WEB-INF/lib folder and restarting Magnolia. However, this is rarely enough as modules add new configuration nodes and modify existing configuration during their installation. The use of a module also results in changes to content repositories. Removing all of this information is difficult without knowing exactly what the installation tasks were.
repositoriesfolder. Then install the module and try it out. When you are done testing, remove the module JAR and restore the
repositoriesfolder from the backup. This way you can go back to square one after the trial. We also recommend that you implement segregated development and production environments and take regular backups for disaster recovery so you can revert to a prior state in a routine fashion.
