Administration Control Panel

ACP Annotated The ACP (aka “backend”) is a restricted area through which administrators have access to some views and functions not available in a site's public interface (aka “frontend”). A separate interface for administrative tasks is a de facto standard in the CMS world. However, there is a great difference in the way zoglair implements backend functionality, and it certainly has nothing to do with how it looks...

In short, there is no distinction between frontend and backend tasks. There are tasks that a user can and cannot do, no matter the interface. In other words, you are free to move tasks between interfaces. In fact, it is possible to build a site in such a way that ACP is either not needed or completely changed!

The default ACP interface may look familiar to you, as it resembles a PC desktop. It covers all the available space of the browser's window. If you press F11, to operate in full screen mode, it will stretch to fit accordingly.

It consists of the following parts:

  • a menu bar on the top
  • a task bar on the bottom, and
  • a window area in between

A wallpaper is used as background, easily changeable through the Upload grid. Your logo is automatically super-imposed, for a more personalized experience!

ACP menu options and desktop icons are organized as following:
