2sxc 9.42 for DNN 7 to 9
Website Builder, Content Manager, App-System: open-source and amazing

Install default content-types and templates

2sxc helps you (the web designer / developer) help your customers (the site owner / editor) create awesome content for their customers (the visitor). So with 2sxc you can create perfectly customized content-types and views. But to get started - and to build upon - it's easier if you just install the basic content-type + content-templates package we provide. 

  • IF your skin/theme is bundled with a custom content-type package, please use these instructions
  • If you have no plan yet, just follow the instructions below ;)

Check pre-requisites

Please ensure that you have

  1. DNN installed
  2. 2sxc installed

If this is not the case, follow the instructions on learn > installation.

Install the basic content-types and templates

Core steps
