Main Menu

The main menu is the first page that comes up after logging in and is the return page for most other detailed operations. From this menu you can select the operations you wish to perform. Different user access levels will see different selections. Go to managing users to find out more about access levels. The main menu for a admin user access level is shown below:

main menu

Along the left are the menu option mode buttons. Clicking a button on the left will generally display a different selections on the right related to the option group that has been selected. The exceptions to this are when there is only one option, such as Revise Menu. Clicking Revise Menu takes you directly to the menu items editor.

The left menu option mode buttons are arranged in three groups. The first group includes the most basic selections: Edit Content and See Published Site. It is assumed that these functions are the functions that are expected to be used on an ongoing basis for site maintenance. Re-run Wizard is also included in here for easy access to using the Wizard system to build a site from one of our pre-stored templates. It is automatically disabled after running the wizard, and is not at all available to restricted users.

The next group of option mode buttons are labeledOther Actions and other basic functions that may occur as site maintenance as well. This includes creating new pages, revising menu items, revising the schedule for a calendar or event page, and setting metatags and page names for search engine optimization. If you have installed a shopping cart, the Zen Cart admin area can also be accessed from here. You may need to change the site options to enable this button.

The last group of option mode buttons are labeled Advanced Actions and include operations associated with the setting up of the website. Only power users and admin users have access to this group. These include deleting, copying or renaming pages, setting up styles for the menus or the pages, working on the border areas, and working with the head area (useful for adding JavaScript functions to your pages). You may also manage users and change site options in this group if you login as an admin access-level user.
