Users and Privileges Management

Users and Privileges Management

Multiple users can be added to your site and assigned customised roles. You can specify the content each person can edit or even view. The system features enterprise-level user management.

Give your administrators, authors and editors as much control as you need them to have, right down to the content level.

You can be confident of knowing the administration abilities of everyone logging into your website which will not only give you peace of mind but also the method of allocating tasks and roles. Below are listed some of the key security features:

  • Permissions may be assigned to user groups, roles, departments or individual users
  • Restrictions may apply globally, by section, category or at individual object level
  • Permissions include separate read, edit and publishing authorities
  • You can define an unlimited number of Member Groups
Rollback Functionality

Rollback Functionality

Website owners can therefore keep a visual history of website amendments, which can be extremely useful if it is necessary to revert to any previous webpage versions.

The CMS rollback functionality allows website owners to:

  • Monitor what website content has been amended and by whom
  • Compare the current version of the webpage with any previous versions via the revision history
Version Tracking

Version Tracking

Versioning provides a more powerful alternative to the above. Without the user having to backup files, different web page content versions can be tracked with version tracking functionality; this can be applied to web pages content and images.

Unlimited versioning history enables the editor to store and archive previous versions of edited content and revert to earlier content revisions if necessary.

Web administrators can assign tasks while managing Web site activity within a single environment. Content revisions can be tracked, sent through an approval chain and historical versions rolled back.

A feature of the V6 Professional CMS is that pages can be edited in a way similar to that made popular by the Wikipedia website.

  • A secure login restricts the access to the named individuals only
  • They can then, for example, add pages, meta tags, keywords and navigation titles, etc. as well as informational content.
  • Rollback facility allows any changes to revert back to any stage of editing, so no content can be lost and a warning is given before any deletions are accepted.
  • Any changes made can be viewed before final completion.
  • The side navigation is automatically edited.
  • You can define an unlimited number of Member Groups.
