Alfresco CE stands for Alfresco Community Edition. It's the product to be installed.

Alfresco SDK stands for Alfresco Software Development Kit. It's the Maven base project to develop extensions in Alfresco Repository and Alfresco Share.

Hi,

Alfresco is an ECM (Enterprise Content Management) product. It is not recommended to use Alfresco to create just a Dynamic website. It provides the functionality to store and manage content/documents of the organizations.

You can use Alfresco SDK to customize the Alfresco product. However, Alfresco can communicate with a website, you should not use SDK to create a Dynamic website.

Please visit Using Alfresco Share | Alfresco Documentation for more information.

Thanks

I understand it is not only for dynamic website. My question is based on Web Quick Start module,

Currently If I use Alfresco CE , I can see there is Web Quick Start dash let available but it is not available in Maven SDK project,  I want to customized wcmqs (Web Quick Start) to mimic my existing website. Or is the anyway I can create empty wcmqs instead of importing Finance or Government module.

My requirement is Creating website , some of  content of site should be visible by some users , some contents should be hidden for non-login users and contents is coming from Database.

Please help me to work on right direction.
