Training Guide

Logging In

The layout that is viewed upon logging into the CMS depends upon the role of the user. Content contributors can use an on-page link called the DirectEdit link from a published page. Users are logged in directly to edit that page rather than having to navigate a file structure. In this case, the predominant view is the WYSIWYG editor. In addition the WYSIWYG view, when navigating the CMS various functions are available on the tabbed interface depending upon the authority level of the user.

Access a Page

Pages are accessed in one of two ways: the DirectEdit link or navigating through the folder structure within the interface itself. In both cases, users must have been granted editing access to the page in order to access it. When using the folder structure to navigate, users must have access to the directories/folders leading to the page to be edited in order to traverse through the structure.

Initial access to the system is granted from the TTUHSC DirectEdit link. Once logged into the system the user can navigation the structure tree based on their authority level.
