Interface Overview

Interface Overview

On eZ Publish sites running the Website Interface, there are two mechanisms for working with site content: the Website Interface and the Administration Interface.

The Website Interface

The majority of the work on an eZ Publish Website Interface site is done via the Website Interface. The elements of this interface are only displayed to users who belong to a group with Editor or Administrator privileges. Therefore, site guests, even if they are registered, cannot access the Website Interface. Refer to the section “Managing your user profile” for instructions on logging in to the Website Interface. You should first create a new user account (instead of using the administrator account created during the installation) as described in the next section. Accessing and using content management functions in the Website Interface is described in the “Managing content” section.

The Administration Interface

More complex administrative tasks, such as user management and site design, are done through the Administration Interface. Generally only advanced users, such as site administrators and webmasters, need to use the Administration Interface. All of the editing tasks that can be performed via the Website Interface can also be performed via the Administration Interface.

Refer to the “Administration Interface” documentation pages for instructions on accessing and using the Administration Interface.
