Introduction to the CMS

This is a quick overview of what you're seeing when you first open up the CMS.

Content pane

This is where all of the authored work, aka. Content, is. From here you can create, delete, move, rename, copy and paste content to your heart's desire.


An asset library for your hosted files, such as images, videos, PDFs and whatnot.


If you need an input form on your website, you can create the model for it here and see a list of the user submitted input.

Connections (scoped)

A list of endpoints and resources for your content. Connections can be set up to publish your content to other servers, provide statically hosted media and serve rendering templates.

Schemas (scoped)

A library of content structures. Here you define how your editable content looks and behaves. You can define schemas for both content nodes and fields.

Users (scoped)

All of the users connected to this project. Here you can edit scopes and remove/add new users.

Settings (scoped)

The global project settings, such as which languages are in use.

The main menu just has a few menu points:

  • The user menu, for editing your info or logging out
  • The dashboard link, for returning to the dashboard
  • The language picker, if more then one language has been set up in the "Settings" pane
