Top menu items
The top menu items are links to direct child pages of the home page (which have been selected for the main menu). If a top item has child content, it opens a dropdown with a link to itself and its child contents.
These are links to the contents.
Depending on the browser width, the main menu changes to a mobile view with a 'burger icon'.
This shows the path from the Home page to the current content. Path elements are links to the respective content.
The content area shows what is the "content" part of the master page. It can be viewed in normal or edit mode (if the user has these rights).
The defaut view shows the content as it has been created and edited. If the content has been changed compared to the published version and the user has edit rights, he7she is shown the draft version. This can be changed by the 'eye' icon in the system menu.
The edit view allows direct editing of all editable parts of the page.
Save and Cancel
At the top of this view there are Save and Cancel buttons to save or cancel the current changes.
Important: If changes are not saved and the page is closed, all changes are lost!
Depending on the page types and templates, the edit areas may differ. So a full page layout has just one dit area, whereas a template based page may have several sections which can be filled by parts and their editable fields.
Beside the master templates, which govern the area around the content, there are page templates for the content layout and part templates for single parts in sections of the content.
Sections are areas for parts (maybe with own templates), which are defined in a page template. Typical sections are columns for main and aside content.
Part are small items which can be added to a section. Parts can be program defined like a list of subcontent or a list of usres, or it can be template based with editable fields like text field, html field or image field.
Footer links point to content, which in the administration has been set a footer content. Typically these are imprints or legal pages.
