Adxstudio Portals offers a powerful suite of editing tools. Users with suitable permissions can add, modify, or delete web pages and their content without having to directly access the databases and web servers that physically contain these entities. Editing can be performed in any modern browser and is accomplished through the use of two powerful yet intuitive tools.

This document assumes that you have the necessary permissions. If you do not, ask your portal administrator to arrange this for you. The permissions can be assigned to individual pages, so be sure to specify which pages you will need to edit.

If you are using the sample organization, sign in with administrator as the username and pass@word1 as the password.

Getting Started

Sign in first. This will enable content editing for users with this permission. A toolbar on the right hand side allows you to edit the page properties. A blue edit button will appear when the mouse moves over any content that can be managed by the user. Examples of the toolbar and edit button are shown in the images below.

Managing Child Pages

There should be some pages with an icon of an eye with a line through it. This icon indicates the page is not visible in the site map, but if published it can still be viewed if linked to directly. As with a web link set, one can reorder, edit, or delete the web pages listed.

Navigate to the page to be deleted and click the Delete button in the toolbar. Click Yes to confirm. Any child pages of the deleted page will also be considered deleted.

Warning!

Certain web pages are important to have for a properly functioning website – for instance, a sign in page or 404 page. Be sure not to delete these pages, as doing so can cause a website to stop functioning properly.
