Dashboard - Interface

Below here you will see an image with the interface of the Dashboard. You can only see this when you have a Concrete5 user account and when you permission to view the dashboard. Not every user will be able to see all the features that are available in Concrete5. This depends on the permissions that are set to the group(s) which the user is added to.

Note: We've highlighted the areas that are likely to be most relevent to our Concrete5 users

Interface parts numbers:

  1. Click on the image to go back to the root of the dashboard (currently shown page).
  2. Press here to return to the first page of the website.
  3. This button will take you to the official Concrete5 documentation. For most of our clients, we recommend you avoid this, and seek help through http://www.wizzsupport.com.
  4. Sign out. You will log out from Concrete5 and will be able to enter the dashboard only when you are logged in again. The remember me function will forget you as well.
  5. Version number. Since version 5.3 the version number of Concrete5 is visible here unless tabs are available.
  6. Navigation of the dashboard. The first is the Sitemap. This feature will be described in detail in the section.
  7. File manager. In this manager you will be able to see uploaded files and manage them. Files are able to be placed in “Sets”. These are a kind of group which makes searching for files easier.
  8. Reports. View all filled in form results on the website.
  9. Non-standard functionality. Not explained in this version of the manuals.
  10. Users and Groups. User and group managers.
  11. Scrapbook. Scrapbook which you can use to copy blocks over the entire website.
  12. Pages and Themes. Manage page types, theme’s and single pages.
  13. Add functionality. Inspect currently installed blocks and install new ones.
  14. Maintenance. Run tasks that will improve the website’s search engine, generate a sitemap and import customer information.
  15. Change settings that apply for the entire website.
  16. The actual content of the dashboard. Here forms are shown to perform search and edit actions. This is shown in blocks like 17 and 18. When a page contains subpages there will be tabs available like in the image on the right. The most left page “Themes” is currently active.
  17. Look at some global statistics of the website and the user itself.
  18. Statistics graph which shows the number of visits of an entire week. Move over with your move to see the actual amount.
    Note: These stats are not entirely accurate, and we recommend you contact us to have "Google Analytics" reporting installed onto your website.

Numbers 1 through 15 are always available with exceptions by permissions.
