CMS Admin Area - Editing Images?

If I set this up for a customer and they want to change their site Logo or main page image, there isn't a way to do this. Or is there? I had to change the file in DreamWeaver and upload it for the logo to change. My customers would have to have an area somewhere to change images on pages. In the screen shots for the site sculptor it seems like you can change images as there is a "header" section with the site logo in it...

Also, what about a way to rename the links that are already there? So instead of "About Us", i want "About".

Thanks

In order to make the header image updatable like this in the CMS you would need to create a new SiteSculptor design that had an editable region for the header. There are some limitations doing it like this though. If the region is editable that means that it can be different for each and ever page, so updating the logo for the entire site would require you to make the changes to each and ever page in the site. I would suggest that you make the changes directly in the template, or you can switch out the logo by saving the new one to the same location as the old one with the same name, this will overwrite the existing one and use the new one for the image without any other updates.

As for altering page names once the site is complete this not supported with SiteSculptor. You could change the name that you see in the navigation by updating the menu file but the filename will remain the same.

Alright, so modify the menu.php in dreamweaver, to change the navigation text. I should have thought of that as I recreated the site like 5 times to add or remove a link, and now I need to add one again so I was thinking "Great I am going to lose all my CMS changes I did...".

Just to clarify on this part, if you add a page to the navigation by updating the menu file you will not have access to that page in the CMS area. The only pages that you will see in the CMS area are the pages that were created by the Site Sculptor wizard.
