Access the Site Manager

The Site Manager is the primary tool for organizing and maintaining your website content. It provides several features for viewing your site structure, allowing you to easily locate content in your website. Some key tools include:

  1. Content Search
  2. Architectural View and Flat View
  3. Drag and drop content node ordering
  4. "Toggle-able" viewing of child content/nodes
  5. "Quick-Edit" controls for editable items in the Site Manager grid
  6. User Permissions for all content
  7. Version History

Click on the Site Manager button on the primary admin navigation to view the Site Manager. There will only be one page (content node) in the site structure labeled Home. All new pages will be added below the home page.

Architectural View

The Site Manager's default view shows an Architectural View of content (e.g. pages or sections) in your site. This is merely a hierarchal view of content as it resides within the site.  By default, the Site Manager displays the Home page and the first level of sub-pages. Clicking the "Arrow" icon next to a node with children will reveal the children of that node.

Title

The Title shows the Navigational/Menu Title of each content node. Click the Title to edit any of the content's attributes.

Objects

The Objects column shows the current setting for the Content Object cascade of each node. Click on the object icon of the desired row to edit the Object Cascade Inheritance setting.

Options include:

  • Inherit Cascade
  • Start New Cascade
  • Do Not Inherit Cascade

Display

The Display column shows the current display setting of each node.

Options include:

  • Yes
  • No
  • Per Stop / Start Dates

Template

The Template column indicates whether or not a template has been explicitly assigned to a specific node. Click the icon to edit the layout template for a specific content node.

Nav

The Nav column indicates whether a content node is included in the site navigation. Click the icon to edit it.

Updated

The Updated column displays the date and time of the last time a content node was edited.

Buttons

To the right of each item in the Site Manager is a panel of buttons.  Each button performs a specific task.  Knowing each button's function is essential to using the Site Manager.

 Edit - allows you to edit a content node.

 View - allows you to view the content node.

 Version History - takes you to the version history.

 Permissions - allows you to restrict/grant access.

 Delete - allows you to delete the content node.

Tooltips

Mousing over the "?" icon next to any label in Mura will display a "Tooltip" providing a brief explanation of the field or functionality.

Flat View

The Flat View enables an in-depth look at almost every aspect of your site's content by allowing users to conduct advanced searching and filtering of content.

Advanced searching and filtering include:

  • Keyword Searching
  • Filter by content Type (Page, File, Folder, Calendar, Gallery, etc.)
  • Filter by Tag
  • Filter by Category

There are a number of pre-set searches that you can run with a single click:

  • All Expiring Content
  • My Expiring Content
  • My Drafts
  • Files I'm Editing Offline

You can also sort your search results by Last Updated, Date Created and Title.

The "Add Content" Button (Plus Sign)

Mouseover over the "Add Content" icon  next to any page or section within the site to reveal a menu of links to add new content to the site. Click "Add Content" to reveal a Select Content Type dialog window.
