This is a short overview on the areas of your website's Administration area. It includes information on the front control panel, the tool bar, the Administrator menu, and where to get help.

Click on the small arrow to start the video.

Overview:

In this video you are given a quick look at the back-end or administration area of your website.

When you first login you will see the control panel. The Control Panel area includes the Quick Icons (article manager, user manager) to the areas that you use most. On the left side, you can see a list of currently logged in users and articles that have been recently added.

The top menu gives you access to all of the areas of your website. The menu items include:

Site: Areas which administer the overall settings for the website itself

Menus: If you want to add, remove or edit menu items

Content: This menu area brings up the article manager as well as the section and category areas.

Components: This menu accesses add-ons that are specific to your website. For example, if you have an eCommerce site you can access the store software. Or, if you have a Gallery feature on your site you will be able to access the images and other features here.

Extensions: Extensions are small modules that complement the components and appear as menu items or blocks. For instance if you have a weather module on your site you can adjust the settings in this area.

Tools: This area has some administration tools such as clearing the cache of a website; and messages sent to the administrator.

Help: Clicking on the help link will bring up information relevant to the area you are in at the time. For instance if you are in the Article Manager and click on help, you will see instructions about adding articles or editing them.

Creative Developer , Web Designer and All Around Geek


April has such a passion for technical innovation and graphic design, we swear she'd be designing web pages even if she didn't get paid. Back in the mid-80s, she convinced us to switch our entire production department to personal computers when the Macintosh was just a gleam in Steve Job's eye. An award-winning journalist who ventured into the self-publishing field, she was enlisted by several print and publishing groups to train graphic designers on the value of the personal computer. She was present for what became known as the desktop publishing revolution. Always eager to learn, she traded her technical knowledge with the talents of graphic designers and became a sought-after graphic designer. Still not satisfied, April caught the wave of web design launching websites back when a telephone line was required to get on the internet. Since then, she's been keeping us on the fast-track to internet technologies. Her guiding theme: "If a customer needs it, I can figure out how to do it, and how to make it easily accessible for the client."
