Test Lenya Area

Use this directory for your online tests with the Apache Lenya Content Management System.

Here are some brief instructions to get you started:

  • Log in to the test area (link disabled) as user 'review'.  You should see that 'Test Area' is selected in the menu on the left of the page.
  • The 'Authoring' tab will be selected at the top of the page.  To add a new document in this page, or in one of its child pages, click on the 'Site' tab at the top of the page.
  • Do: File -> New Document
    Be careful to look at the Parent ID.  It should be /test
  • Fill in the Document ID and Navigation Title.  The ID should be a simple, short descriptive word without spaces.  It will be used to name the directory that shows up in your new web page.  Pick your own name for test purposes.  Thus I have created a test page with ID 'denice' and title "Denice's Test Page".  Click the 'Create' button.
  • You will now find yourself staring at your new test page.  It is time to edit it.  Select 'Edit -> WISIWIG Editor [Kupu]'
  • There are two major editors available - Kupu and BXE.  Though BXE seems to be the sexier of the two I suggest that you avoid it until it matures a bit.  The two editors do not interoperate.  Here is a description of Kupu to get you started.
  • When you have saved and exited from the editor you still need to publish your document on the 'live' web site.  Select 'Workflow -> Publish' and affirm your selection.  To visit the live page, click on the 'Live' tab at the top of the page.
  • Finally, log out of your session by selecting 'Logout' from the 'File' tab.
