Agility has a sub-system dedicated to the management and moderation of user generated content (UGC). This refers to content on your site that is submitted by your site users, rather than by the editors in Agility. The most common types of user generated content are things like comments, ratings, votes, and reviews. You can also set up custom UGC types for text content, videos and photos to collect specific content for a website, contest or campaign.
The UGC component includes an area for collecting user profile data for your website users. You can customize the fields that you want to collect and integrate the user profiles with the authentication logic on your website or application.
The Agility UGC component can also be used together with the WCM component to add user generated functionality to your Agility managed website.
The content types that you require, along with the fields you wish to collect, are configured using a graphical user interface in the Agility Content Manager. Using the Content Manager, you can also set up moderator users and indicate what content they have access to moderate. Moderators log into the Content Manager to view and approve or decline in coming user generated content.
