Customize for client use

Customize for client use

I purchased CMS thinking it was designed for my clients to update their websites. I understand that I can make modifications to rebrand etc. I dont wish my client to add new pages nor do I wish them so see the Designer notes. Basically I want them to be able to update only the sections of pages I have set up for them.
What would be the quickest way to achieve this?

Well they actually can't make new pages with this product so that solves that part. I have thought it a little weird that those tabs are not "toggleable" because you can't make a new page. And I wouldn't want a client trying to add in code from the notes.Has anyone tried to remove those tabs on their implementations so that only the edit page option is available. It would probably be a little less confusing to the end client

You can just comment out that tab in the menu code and it doesn't appear.

I'm sorry, fairly new. What exactly do you mean by comment out that tab?

All programming languages support the ability to add comments to the body of the program. A comment is a line that does not execute and is usually used to document a thought or feature or state the purpose of the function and so on and so on.

When you "comment something out" you place, in the case of PHP the tags for begin comment " /*" and end comment "*/" around the section of code that you don't want to execute.

okay, but where?

I tried doing this, but I must have done something wrong. I followed the trail back to menu.php in the css menu writer folder. I added /* and */ here on line 25
/* <li><span><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>admin/contents_insert.php">Insert New Content</a></span></li> */

but that didn't work, I am now seeing a "/**/" in the nav area when I preview it. So I must have put it in the wrong place. Where should I have put it?

In the menu.php file inside of CSSMenuWriter > cssmw you can just remove line 25, it looks like this:

php:
25: <li><span><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>admin/contents_insert.php">Insert New Content</a></span></li>



You can also comment it out but you would need to use a regular html comment like this:

html:
25: <!--<li><span><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>admin/contents_insert.php">Insert New Content</a></span></li>-->

Eric beat me to it :)

Yes it's the regular HTML comment you need. That way you can always easily uncomment it, add a page and then comment it out again before your client notices!! :)

It would be good to have some sort of toggle for this though in a future release of the Solution.

It would alsi be good if the client couldn't edit the two fields top left (not got it open so my memory fails me) The page name and page content area bit. I've had several instances where I've had to repair clients over enthusiasm.

Still that's for the future.

well at least I figured out the correct place ! :) So is there are a general rule of thumb as to when to do it with <! opposed to /* ?

Thanks for everyone's input on this
