 Control Panel Buttons 

The Control Panel is only viewable when logged into your website. It is located at the top of the page and looks like this:


In View Mode, you will see your website just as site visitors will see it.  The only exception is that your visitors will not see the Control Panel at the top of the screen or pages that are hidden  This mode is used to give you a quick look at changes you have made without requiring you to log out and back into the website.



The Edit Content Mode is where changes are made to the basic text and images that display in the content area of your site for most page types.


The Edit Special Content Mode is used to access and edit the special portions for certain page types including the Coupons, Files, and Forms pages.  Special Page Types will have both the Edit Content Mode and the Edit Special Content Mode enabled. Page Types without special content will just show a screen explaining that the Special Content  mode is not available for the particular page type (for example the Home Page and Basic Web Page do not have Special Content).


The Edit Menu Mode  is used for editing and moving existing menu items.  It is also used for creating new or deleting existing pages.  Edit Menus Mode is also where you set the Title, Menu Label, Description, Meta Keywords, Page Type and Security for a web page.


The Administration Section House Icon takes you to a special section of the site where additional control panels and edit screens are accessible. This is where you change templates, logos, header, common content, footer content, and lots more. The Admin section is only accessible by the Administrator User. 


Clicking the Help Icon will open the Help Site where you may access online tutorials, documentation, Frequently Asked Questions and tips for creating, editing, or marketing your website. 


The Log Out Key Icon can be clicked to Log out of editing mode.  Clicking the key will return you to the home page of your website and the Control Panel will no longer be visible.
