Top simple navigation + left subnavigation + 1 column

With the Menu Manager you can easily split the navigation in two parts. On this page the top level in the page hierarchy is displayed horizontally and depending on what page is displayed a localized sub-menu is displayed vertically to the left. In this case the sub-menu to the left displays the sub-levels (children) to Default Templates Explained. The {menu} tag The {menu} tag is inserted twice in the page template. First where the main navigation is, which should only show the top level. It looks like this: {menu template='simple_navigation.tpl' number_of_levels='1'}.

Event Manager

Events are a new powerful way of assigning actions to events. For example if you would like to send an email to the site administrator when a new file is uploaded or a new page is created by another user you could add some code to those events to be executed when that event happens. In brief here's how it works: a) A module, or the core, can register, and then Send Events such as "newNews", or "newFronteEndUser" or "fileUploaded", "editPage", etc, etc, etc. there's some 50 events in the core at the moment, and then uploads and frontend users have been configured to send events, We still have to do selfreg, etc, etc, etc. b) There are pages in the admin to allow you to specify which modules, and/or user tags should handle those events, and the order that each of those handlers should be called in. c) If one of the handlers of an event is a module, then.... the modules DoEvent method is called with the name of the event, and whatever data…

Extensions

There are three kinds of extensions, that can add many kinds of functionality to your default CMS Made Simple install. They are called tags, user defined tags, and modules. Tags Tags are the simplest form of extensions. They are designed to accomplish just one small and specific task. There are a number of custom tags available with CMS Made Simple. To find what kind of tags are available look in Extensions » Tags in the Admin Panel. To insert any of these in a template or a page, simply type e.g. {content}. Many of these Smarty tags are used as placeholders in a template, i.e. placeholders for content, navigation, breadcrumbs etc. Website developers who have a bit of PHP experience will find it easy to create and share their own custom tags. User defined tags Users can also create their own tags to insert in templates or pages., these are called user defined tags. They are snippets of php code (but without the <?php and ?> surrounding them), providing the ability to add re-usa…

Menu Manager

The Menu Manager is a module that reads your page hierarchy and builds a navigation using a 'Menu Manager Template'. By default a few sample menu manager templates are included with your default installation. For most users these are enough, as a menu basically is just an unordered list that is styled with CSS. The Menu Manager module also accepts various optional attributes (parameters) in the {menu} tag to allow you to customize its behavior. You can see the list and explanation of these parameters in the Menu Manager Help which can be found on the right side of the screen when you click on "Layout » Menu Manager" in the administration console. Customizing templates in the Menu Manager is as simple as clicking the 'Import Template to Database' button, which will then allow you to create a template with a new name, and modify the layout of the template. You can use your new navigation template by specifying the new name in the call to {menu} in your page te…

Content

The content is the information for the page. We have already mentioned that for each page on your site you choose what template to use. When you add content to a page, it is automatically placed in the placeholders of the template selected for that page. A template can define one or several content areas, or content blocks. To add more content blocks to your template, use {content block='block name'}. These blocks will then appear as text areas when you edit or add a page that uses that template. You can make a content block use only one line, instead of a full text area, by using the parameter oneline=true. That is, the full tag being: {content block='block name' oneline=true}. Read about more parameters in the help for the Content tag in the CMSMS Admin Panel, under Extensions » Tags. Content Types There are currently 6 main content types in version 1.10.2 "Casa Pilote". These content types determine the type of content for each menu item. ContentError Page…

Pages and navigation

Pages determine the structure of your web-site as seen in the admin Content » Pages page. Think of a web-site as a set of pages. These pages are accessed through a menu. You can also link to a page from within another page. Navigation/Menu The navigation, or the menu, is a set of links that help the user to navigate through the pages on your web site. These links are automatically created by CMS Made Simple from the page structure. This hierarchy is what drives the menu you see on the left of this page. Pages can be in several levels, like a tree of generations. The top level in the menu are the parent pages. Each parent page can have children pages, which in turn can be parents to other children.

Templates and stylesheets

A template is basically the HTML layout A template is basically the HTML layout, or the design, of a page. This is the work of the designer. Whatever is in a template is used on every page that uses that template, meaning that the person editing the content doesn't need any web design skills. In the template there are placeholders for content and navigation areas. When a user is visiting your site the page is automatically generated from the template and the placeholders are filled with the content. The template is the HTML structure. It is then styled in one or more  style sheets that are attached to each template. This styling is done with CSS.
