To administrate your CMSimple_XH website, you have to log in to switch to the so called admin mode 1). Contrary to many other CMSs the admin mode looks very similar to the front-end for ease of use. The differences are:
Further differences could be caused by extensions, e.g. some templates offer the possibility to configure them, and Coco_XH adds additional editors for the so called co-contents.
The left most item allows to switch between view and edit mode.
“Pages” will call the configured page manager, which simplifies the management of the pages of the website.
Via the “Files” menu you can access the different folders where images, downloads and media files are stored, with the configured filebrowser.
The “Settings” menu offers the following items:
Clicking “Settings” directly will show the “classic” settings menu. Here you can access most of the menu items of the “new” settings menu, and additionally you can view and download the content and pagedata file, and all their backups.
The “Plugins” menu gives access to the administration of all installed plugins, which are listed as menu items.
The right most item (“Logout”) allows to log out from admin mode. This will create a backup of the current content and pagedata files.
Here you can edit the contents of the currently selected page. Since CMSimple_XH 1.5 different editors are available as plugins; tinyMCE is delivered with the base distribution. Earlier versions featured the FCKEditor.
To edit another page, simply navigate to this page as you would do it in the front-end.
These tabs are inserted by extensions and are primarily meant to edit data associated with the currently selected page. The tabs work as toggles; clicking a tab opens the related form; clicking it again closes the form. Two of these tabs are inserted by plugins included in the base distribution of CMSimple_XH: “Page” and “Meta”.
