The main Campsite menu contains a link to the administration Home page and up to six sub-menus, depending on the permissions of the user who is logged in. These sub-menus are Content, Actions, Configure, Users, Plugins and Help. The menus shown below are for an administrator user, who has access to all sub-menu options.
On the left hand side is a list of quick links to different selections of articles; for example, articles that you have submitted yourself, or pending articles.
Here you can find the publications on the server, reader comments, the image archive, and the Universal List, a place where you can browse all of the articles in the Campsite database. For each available publication, there are quick links to the latest three issues, and a full list of sections within each issue. In the screen shot below, a sample publication called 'the Custodian' has been set up, with two issues in both English and Spanish. Within issue 2 of the English edition, there are six sections shown.
This menu provides quick access to the most commonly used functions, including 'Add new article' and 'Change your password'.
Here you can configure the preferences for your publication. Templates are the files which determine how Campsite displays content to readers and subscribers. Article Types describe the format of your articles, while Topics allow you to categorize your articles. The Languages option specifies the languages that journalists have to choose from when creating articles. Countries enables you to specify the name of a country in the local language for each territory. The Localizer allows you to translate the administration interface. Clicking Logs will show you the recent activity of all staff users, including the IP address that they have logged in from.
Here you can add and edit staff users, and manage subscribers. You can also define staff user types, or synchronize user accounts between Campsite and Phorum, a popular web forum system.
This sub-menu provides access to additional functionality for Campsite, including blog, interview and poll plugins.
