Introduction To Using Web Pro Manager

Welcome to the Web Pro Manager User Guide

This user guide will explain the ins-and-outs of the Web Pro Manager, a powerful and easy-to-use Content Management System (CMS) which is accessible wherever you can access the Internet and allows you to manage and make changes to your website in a simple interface. This CMS allows for easy and intuitive editing of the front-end public side of your website. The CMS is made up of the following areas (Figure 1.1):

  • Home
  • Sections
  • Pages
  • Library
  • Users

Understanding Sections, Pages, and Components

  • Sections - Sections are similar to folders. They are used to organize Pages located on the website into manageable groups. These Section “groups” make up the navigation your website's visitors see. Each Section can hold an unlimited number of Pages and each Section can have an unlimited number of sub-Sections. Learn how to use Sections in Chapter 5: Working With Sections.

  • Pages - Pages are the actual pages of your website. Various types of pages include a Homepage, a Content page, or a Search page. In addition, a Link page has been added to the CMS, which is not really a page, but allows for the addition of extra internal and external links to show up in the main or component-based navigation. Learn how to use pages in Chapter 6: Working With Pages.

  • Components - Components are the building blocks that make up your pages. Components range in design and functionality depending on their intended purpose. You can easily construct many different types of Pages by filling them up with re-usable components.

    All components available on your site are listed on the Component Library page, which can be accessed via the Library tab (Figure 1.1). Learn how work with Components in Chapter 8: Enabling/Disabling Components.
