For More Information, www packtpub com building websites with expressionengine 1 6 book.

Start Posting, Inside the Control Panel, When you first log into the control panel there are lots of options Let us take a quick. tour of the control panel, First we will need to log into ExpressionEngine If you are using XAMPP. to follow along with this chapter go to http localhost admin php or. http localhost system index php to log in, Throughout this book it is assumed that you are using XAMPP with.
http localhost addresses If you are following along on an actual. website substitute http localhost for your website domain. for example http www example com, In Chapter 2 we discussed moving the login page to the root of. our website to mask the location of our system directory If. http localhost admin php does not work refer to Chapter 2. The first page we see is the CP Home We can return to this page anytime. by selecting CP Home from the menu at the top right of the screen above. the main menu In the left column we have EllisLab News Feed Below. we have Most Recent Weblog Entries as well as any Recent Comments or. trackbacks visitors may have left In our case our site is brand new so there. will be no recent comments or trackbacks and only 1 recent weblog entry. Getting Started with ExpressionEngine Clicking on the link will take you. directly to that entry, For More Information, www packtpub com building websites with expressionengine 1 6 book. On the right there is a Bulletin Board a way for you to pass messages to. other members of your control panel the Site Statistics and a Notepad we. can write anything here and it will be available every time we log in. Across the top is the main menu bar and at the top right are links to your. website My Site this page CP Home the ExpressionEngine user guide. User Guide and to log out Log out The Publish and Edit links in the. main menu bar are where you can create new entries and edit existing. entries The Templates link is where we can create new templates and edit. existing templates We will spend most of our time in these sections. For More Information, www packtpub com building websites with expressionengine 1 6 book. Start Posting, The Communicate tab is where we can manage bulk emails to our website. members At this time we do not have any members to email other. than ourselves but as our site grows larger this feature can be a useful. communication marketing tool, Be careful to avoid sending unsolicited bulk emails or spam using.
this feature In many countries there are laws governing what can. or cannot be done In the United States commercial emails must. meet very specific guidelines set by the Federal Trade Commission. http www ftc gov spam, The Modules tab is where we can manage all the modules that come. with ExpressionEngine as well as optional third party modules that. we may wish to install We can download additional modules from. http expressionengine com downloads addons category modules. The My Account tab is where we can edit our login preferences including. our username and password We can also edit the look and feel of the control. panel home page from this screen as well as send private messages to other. members Much of this page is irrelevant when we are the only member of. the site as we are right now, The Admin tab is where most of the configuration of ExpressionEngine. takes place and we will spend a lot of time here By default most of the. ExpressionEngine settings are already properly set but feel free to browse. and explore all the options that are available Full documentation on each of. the options is available at http expressionengine com docs cp admin. index html, This concludes our brief tour of ExpressionEngine We will be returning to these. controls many times over the course of this book but for now we are going to delve. into one of the most important parts of the control panel templates. Templates and URLs, The basic concept in ExpressionEngine is that of a template Go to any. ExpressionEngine powered website and you will undoubtedly be looking at a. template Templates are what the outside world sees. At its most basic a template in ExpressionEngine is a HTML or CSS or JavaScript. file If we wanted to we could use a template exactly like a HTML file without. any problems We could create an entire website without ever using any other part. of ExpressionEngine, For More Information, www packtpub com building websites with expressionengine 1 6 book.
However we can take templates a lot further than that By using ExpressionEngine. tags inside our templates we can take advantage of all the features of. ExpressionEngine and combine it with all the flexibility that HTML and CSS offers. in terms of layout and design We are not limited to pre defined cookie cutter. templates that have been carefully adapted to work with ExpressionEngine This is. why ExpressionEngine is very popular with website designers. On the flip side this is also why there is such a learning curve with. ExpressionEngine There is no point and click interface to change the look and feel of. your website you have to have some experience with HTML to get the most out of it. Let us take a closer look at templates and how they relate to URLs. 1 If you are not already logged in log into ExpressionEngine at either. http localhost admin php or http www example com admin php. 2 Click on the Templates button on the top of the screen. 3 Templates are stored in groups There is no right way to group templates. some sites have all their templates in a single group and other sites have lots. of template groups We are going to create a new template group for each.
