-====== Administration ====== 
  
-<​note>​This article refers particularly to CMSimple_XH 1.5 and later. In earlier versions the admin menu was called edit menu, and this was structured somewhat differently.</​note>​ 
- 
-To administrate your CMSimple_XH website, you have to log in to switch to the so called admin mode ((this is often called back-end, opposed to the front-end which is visible to visitors of the website)). Contrary to many other CMSs the admin mode looks very similar to the front-end for ease of use. The differences are: 
- 
-  * the so called admin menu on top of the browser window 
-  * the content editor instead of the (read-only) page content (in edit mode only) 
-  * the so called page data tabs directly above the content editor (in edit mode only) 
- 
-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. 
- 
-===== Admin Menu ===== 
- 
-The left most item allows to switch between view and edit mode. 
- 
-"​Pages"​ will call the configured [[page managers|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: 
- 
-  * CMS (edit settings affecting the whole CMSimple_XH installation) 
-  * Website (edit settings affecting only the currently selected subsite) 
-  * Language (edit the language strings of the currently selected language) 
-  * Template (edit the currently selected template online) 
-  * Stylesheet (edit the currently selected template'​s stylesheet online) 
-  * Log file (view who has logged in and out, and when) 
-  * Validate links (check all links in the content of the currently selected subsite) 
-  * Info (information about the installed CMSimple_XH version, plugins, PHP, as well as some useful links and the system check) 
- 
-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. 
- 
-===== Content Editor ===== 
- 
-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. 
- 
-===== Page Data Tabs ===== 
- 
-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:​ "​[[pagedata_plugins#​the_plugin_page_params|Page]]"​ and "​[[pagedata_plugins#​the_plugin_meta_tags|Meta]]"​.
