Detailed Lenya Authoring Topics
tabs, there are two other tabs described here.
Admin TabUsers logged onto the site as an author will see the Admin tab near the top of the page. Accessing the admin area through this tab requires the user to have admin rights. At least one login user account in a Lenya system is assigned an Admin roll. This user creates user accounts and assigns them rolls. Additionally the admin user can delete the Trash, which are those pages that authors have deactivated and deleted. She may also look at the web server status. Here is a view of the admin's page:
Multiple AccountsA user who is currently logged in as a reviewer, for example, and then clicks on the Admin tab will need to log into an account with admin privileges. It is important to note that the user will have to log in as a reviewer again when he leaves the admin area. Only one role may be assumed at any time in the session.
Site TabThe Site tab presents a tree view of the entire publication for logged-in authors (reviewers and editors). The hierarchy for the current publication is rooted under the Authoring bullet.
Thus in the preceding example I have a hierarchy of 'Document IDs', or web pages like this:
|Document ID or Object
||Menu Navigation Title
|- /using/detailed|| - Detailed Topics
| Image inserted from available Assets
|- /test/denice||- Denice's Test Page|
Except for page editting, all other important functions of authoring take place from the Site tab. Possible actions for the currently-selected page include the following according to which tab is selected:
- edit page Meta data
- add or delete
Valid objects that may be added include only the following extensions
on uploaded files. All others will be rejected by the
dialog (note that we can, and have, added extensions to the list below):
doc, dot, rtf, txt, asc, ascii, xls, xlw, xlt, ppt, pot, gif, jpg, png, tif, eps, pct, m3u, kar, mid, smf, mp3, swa, mpg, mpv, mp4, mov, bin, sea, hqx, sit, zip, jmx, jcl, qz, jbc, jmt, cfg, pdf
- view the Workflow history for this document
- view previous Versions of this document, or Rollback to a previous version
- Not yet described here:
The Edit MenuUnder the Site tab the Edit Menu provides additional functionality, depending on the state of the currently-selected document.
Some options include:
- move the page up or down the page hierarchy. This may not be changed once the page has been published.
- delete the page, only if it has previously been deactivated.
- archive the page, only if it has previously been deactivated. This is a less-destructive alternative to deleting pages.
- restore the page, only if it has previously been archived.
