System Tab

The System tab contains the most sophisticated tools within the CMS, available for Administrators to use to alter the functioning and structure of the site itself.

The Settings page allows an Administrator to edit the overall settings of the CMS, the Website, Account Creation and the Content Analyzer.  Its setup allows for editing the Value, Name and Description of each setting.

Apps Page

The Apps page allows an Administrator to add and edit applications, the physical appearance of which can be edited using the Apps Tab.

Controls Page

This page provides the Administrator with a manual way to perform automated functions, including AM.NET-CMS Synchronization, resetting ASP.NET applications, clearing a content cache, clearing cached database settings, testing SMTP settings and testing Member Mail Services.

Edit-Lock Page

This page lists the pages on the site that are currently locked for editing by a user.  When these items are deleted, the page is freed from being locked for editing, and other users can access the page to edit it.  When a user is done editing a page and hits "Save", the page will no longer appear in the Edit-Lock queue.

Global Redirects

Global Redirects allows an Administrator to set shorter URLs for longer destination URLs; this is useful for making a URL shorter to make it fit on printed materials, as well as for redirecting users who are using legacy URLs during a website migration from an old site to a newer one. 

Recycle Bin

Administrators have access to a recycle bin, where deleted pages are stored in case they need to be restored to the site.  The items in Recycle can be deleted permanently by hitting the "Delete Selected" button after you've selected a page to delete forever.

Logs Page

This page displays monthly logs, sorted by General Logs, Notification Logs and Error Logs.

Data Page

The CMS Data! feature allows you to search/sort/view/edit/create/delete records in most CMS/SocietyNet database tables.  This is a valuable tool for advanced users who want to drill down directly into data and make changes; as well as average users who just want to view a specific record.
