Navigation In Backoffice
When you login to backoffice for the first time you can take a quick tour (or skip it):
A section in Externable is where you perform specific tasks related to a particular area of the system. For example Content, Settings and Users are all sections. You can navigate between the different sections by clicking the corresponding icon in the section menu which is positioned at the top of the Backoffice.
There are seven default sections:
The Content section contains the content of the website. Content is displayed as nodes in the content tree. Nodes can also show content state:
- Grayed out nodes have not been published
- Nodes have unpublished versions (but are currently published)
- Nodes are protected from the public (can only be accessed by a logged in Member)
- Nodes are currently locked/non-deletable
- Nodes are containers (a List View for example)
You can create Dynamics Integrated Content or Static Content.
The Media section contains the media for the website. By default you can create folders and upload media files (images and PDFs). You can customize the existing media types or define your own from the Settings section.
The Settings section is where you can work with the website layout files, languages, and define media and content types. In this section you can also find the Log Viewer to browse through your log files.
The Settings tree consists of:
- Document Types
- Media Types
- Member Types
- Data Types
- Relation Types
- Log Viewer
