The Management Menu, located at the top of the screen, is used by the Site Administrator, Publisher, and Editor while they are creating and editing pages. The Management menu is visible on every page of the website while in the authoring mode. The items on this Menu will change depending on the user's Role. For a more detailed description see The Management Menu tutorial.
The Management Menu contains the following tabs:
Is the grey bar beneath the Management Menu bar. The shortcut bar is populated automatically depending on your role. Users do not have the option of adding their own shortcuts.
The Navigation Menu is placed in the Header beside the Queen's University logo. It consists of the Queen's pages/people search and a Quick Login menu. These are the same menus that appear on the Queen's main web site.
When your site is created it will have two tabs on the Main Menu. These are Home and News. When you create a page you choose where to save it. Pages saved under the Main Menu will appear as tabs on the main menu. Pages nested under any of these pages will appear as menu item under the specific tab.
The body of the page contains all the contents that you have added to the page. The body of the page is where you enter the contents of your page. When you click the New draft, or you create a new page the Rich Text Editor will open and you will be able to enter and format your text - just like in a word processor.
The Homepage is slightly different than other pages of the site in that it has a Quick Links section.
At the top of the body section are menu tabs. When your website is first created your home page will be displayed. It contains 3 menu tabs:
Beneath the tabs is the Status Bar. Here you can see the Revision state, Current draft, and Actions. Actions will change between unpublish this revision, and when changes have been made to the page, Published and Needs Review.
The Header is the part of the screen that contains the banner and has your site's name in it. It can be customised for your site.

The Quick Links menu appears on the left side of the homepage. You can add links of your choosing to this menu. For more detailed information see the Quick Links tutorial.
A Quick Links menu will be displayed on each page. If the page is a tab on the main menu, the Quick Links menu will display sub pages for that tab. If the open page is one of the sub pages, it will be highlighted in the Quick Link menu to show its position.
The News menu along with the News tab, is provided when your web site is created. For more detailed information see the News Menu tutorial.
