Use the Administration
Log as Administrator

Assuming you have created a list of users, and among them one or more users with a "negative" group (i.e. administrator rights), then log-in as one of those users using the "user" form in the right column, you will be informed of your rights, and you will have two possibilities to act: first on each page by editing or deleting files and folders, and second by using administration plugs-in that are available in the right column under the title "Administration":



Change/Delete a page

On each page title when you are logged as administrator, you will find 2 links, Delete and Edit.



Clicking on delete will:
  1. Create a backup of the page, under the same name with a dot pre-pended. This document is invisible and will therefore not be displayed on the web,
  2. Delete the original file
Clicking on Edit will display a form where you can edit your page content directly (in raw text). When choosing to save the modifications, CSE CMS will:
  1. Create a backup of the page, under the same name with a dot pre-pended. This document is invisible and will therefore not be displayed on the web,
  2. Delete the original file
  3. Write a new file with the name given as title in the form and the content as submitted.
Important: these functions will only work if the Access Rights are correctly set.

Using an administrative plug-in

You can install any software to be called via the administration interface, by putting it simply within the folder defined under $CSE_ADMINFOLDER in the settings.php. I recommend using for instance a PHP-based FTP utility such as the excellent Ali's FTP Interface.


I modified Ali FTP for better fitting in my color scheme


A sample administrative plug-in is given where you can see how the rights or the user is checked and just display phpinfo().

The distribution does not include any FTP utility, you can download Ali's Interface directly on his website. I made some slight changes to his program, but they are not necessary (just for your information):
  • Pre-filling the connection form with my ftp hostname and the appropriate folder,
  • Change the styles to fit nicer in my pages,
  • Removed the link to download the tool (as it is modified) and hence code that sends an email to Ali if somebody downloads it.
