Logging into your admin control panel

Your website is split into two parts: the front end, and your admin control panel.

The 'front end' is the website that your customers see. The 'admin control panel' is the control panel that you use for managing your website.

Accessing the control panel

To log into your admin control panel:

  1. Click the "login to admin" link in the bottom right hand corner of your website.
  2. You will then need to enter the username and password you have been provided with
  3. If there have been a number of unsuccessful attempts to access your admin control panel you may also have to enter an 'anti-spam' CAPTCHA code  - this is to prevent brute force password attempts and help improve the security of our system.
  4. You can bookmark the login page if you would like to.
  5. You can then switch back to viewing your website at any time by clicking the "view website" link in the bottom right hand corner of your admin control panel.

The Admin Control Panel

When you're logged into the admin control panel you will see a dark gray bar containing links along the very top of the site. This is the "primary navigation".

In certain areas there is a lighter gray bar below this dark gray bar. We call this your "shortcut bar".

Some modules also have navigation on the right hand side of the page. This is your "side navigation".
