Start and layout
Start the publisher
After you login the Publisher application can be found in the Start menu:
At the top of the screen the button bar gives access to most often used actions. A complete collection of available actions can be found in the menu on the right of the button bar.
Greyed-out buttons indicate a (temporarily) unavailable action: you may for instance first need to select a file or folder.
The screen below the button bar is divider into three parts. On the left the folder tree, in the center the file list and on the right the preview pane.
The folder tree show all folders you have access to. Some of these are special folders: in the publisher, a website is also a folder, recognisable from the globe icon. Above the folder three there is a workbar - the << arrows allow you to hide the folder tree, and the button on the right offers access to the bread crumb navigation.
When the folder tree is hidden, the 'unhide' button and a 'Navigate up' (to a higher level folder) buttons appear.
Finally context menus are available when your right-click on files or folders.
- Index status: the index document of this folder has a green vertical bar
- The file or folder name, used for the URL
- The file or folder title; used to create the website menu and navigation. When you do not fill out a title, in most websites this file or folder is hidden from the menu and navigation.
- Date and time for the last change
- Publication status icon
- Unpublished, saved changes are displayed using a pen icon
Above the file list a work bar is available for some settings. When the view mode is set to "Website order" the "move" buttons (to top, up, down, to bottom) can be used to set the order of the items in the website. Finally you can switch between single or double row layout for the file list.
You can also sort the file list by name or change date - in this view you can not change the web site order.
When a successfully published file is selected, a preview is shown in the preview pane on the right.
Above the preview pane you can find the page URL. When you click the QR code logo a QR code is displayed on your screen. You can scan this using your mobile phone. Speaking of mobile phones - the pulldown to the right allows you to choose different screen sizes to get an impression of your website on different devices. A custom screen size can also be set.
