The Control Panel is the administrative section of your web site. Understanding the Control Panel will allow you to have command of your site’s apps, content, layout, widgets and much more. The next section will walk you through each part of the Control Panel.
The Administrative Toolbar (shown below) will appear at the top of the screen when you are logged into your site. Use the Administrative Toolbar to navigate to the various sections of the Control Panel.
The Control Panel offers links to a number of administrative choices:
Content is the area where you can create, find and manage the content of your site. Options here are reflected by which apps you've enabled. For instance if you've enabled the "Media Gallery" app, you'll see Media Gallery listed in the content section.
Build lets you manage and customize your site's apps, layout, menus and vocabularies.
Appearance lets you select a display theme.
Settings allow you to control various settings of your site, such as making your site private or configuring your site to integrate with 3rd party services.
In People you can find and manage site members.
Support is used when you want to send comments or report any problems you experience using your site to the OpenScholar support team.
