Type:

Access:

menu=>Site=>Preview

User Level:

Manager; Administrator; Super Administrator.

Description:

The Site Preview function quickly allows a view of the current Front-end of the web site without having to log out of the Administrator Back-end. This can be used for example, to check on the effect that recent changes to settings that have been made in the Back-end, have had. It is also possible to use this function to get a visual display of the locations of the Front-end Site module areas.

There are three choices of Preview that can be made:

In New Window:

This option opens a view of the Front-end of the current site in a new browser window, starting with the Front Page (Home Page).

In-line:

Browser Preview - Inline
Browser Preview In-Line

This option opens a view of the Front-end of the current site within the actual workspace of the current Control Panel screen, starting with the Front Page.

There is a link within this display that enables the same view to then be opened in a new, full screen, browser window.

In-line with Positions:

prev_inline_pos1
Browser Preview In-line
with Positions

This option opens a view of the Front Page within the workspace of the current Control Panel screen.

The Positions, as detailed within the Site Template, and the names that have been assigned to them, are outlined on a clean representation of the Front Page. Any published Menus are hidden for this Preview, although some of the Content as well as Banners, and Images will be displayed in the relevant locations.

This is a useful function for identifying into which of the various blocks (Positions) within a Template, to place particular Modules or Menus, for example.

There is a link in the display that enables the same view to be opened in a new, full screen, browser window.
