This screen-shot. Description of functions of each editor control button. This is a screen-shot of the News Block in the left sidebar containing the UCC News RSS feed. These News Blocks provide additional editor functionality besides the main edit block. I have also used a "HIDE" function so the News Block does not show up in the Site Directory, only while in the editor function.
TOP LINE - CREATOR FUNCTIONS
NORMAL or EDIT moves you between the editor and normal layouts - VALIDATE checks your in page created links for validity - IMAGES allows you to browse your computer and upload images. If necessary can delete images easily with a mouse click - DOWNLOADS to upload images, audio, PDF, text files to this directory. Then create links directly to the file and place that link on your pages - SETTINGS allows you to view and edit the TEMPLATE, CONFIGURATION, LANGUAGE, STYLE SHEET and CONTENT files. Make sure you know what you are doing here - HELP - I don't hide that this program, CMSimple, was developed and is FREELY offered much on par with the likes of Wordpress and other Content Management Programs. Some take the links out of these programs. I keep them in because I support the great work offered in spurring new creative development. However, I know the program thoroughly and an expert template builder. But, there is a wealth of information found through this link to the CMSimple website - LOGOUT means what it says. Be sure to SAVE before LOGOUT.
