Smart CMS for the Cloud Servers

Quick Start Guide for the demo site users

Upload Templates and supporting css, js and image files

Assets in AUMIZ

  • Download the Templates we created for the demo purpose from Google Drive.
  • Sign in to the Admin panel.
  • Go to ASSETS.
  • Create Folders named css, js and images under the folder /assets/templates/default.
  • Upload the Files you have downloaded in step 1 in the respective folders.
  • You can create additional Folders anywhere under the Folder /assets and upload files you are going to use while creating the web pages.

Make mandatory Settings

Settings in AUMIZ

  • Go to MORE > SETTINGS.
  • Under the tab WWW, set the value for Host to http://1-dot-aumizdemo121216.appspot.com.
  • Under the tab Core, set the value for Default Template, Page not Found Template, Direct Access Restricted Template and Unauthorised Access Template. Default is the template which will be used to render the web page when no Template is selected for the Core.
  • Save the Settings.

Create new Core to add a web page

Core in AUMIZ

  • Go to CORE.
  • Create a new Core by selecting a type from the Post, Profile, Event, Form and CoreList. Start with Post to begin with.
  • Input values for properties of the Post (Core) and Save it.
  • Newly created Post (Core) will be in Unpublished state. Publish it by clicking on the eye icon in the row.
  • Visit the page by clicking on the link - second last icon in the row.

Create new Category

Widgets in AUMIZ

  • Create a new Category under Web. A new Nav (Widget) is created by the same, with the same tree structure as that of the Category.
  • Go to WIDGETS.
  • Click on the newly created Nav to edit it. You need to update two properties to make the Nav work as expected.
  • First is Island - this is the location of the Nav (Widget) in the template. For available Islands in a Template, see Islands configuration in the Template section below.
  • Second is Visibility - For simplicity, select Visible on all Pages to make the Nav visible on all web pages provided selected Island is available on the corresponding Template.
  • Save the Nav.

Islands in the demo Templates

Here is the Islands configuration in all three demo Templates.

Important: On the demo site, whenever an Island is empty (nothing is Published on that Island) we have highlighted it using red text. Of course, this will not be a scenario on live, public facing websites.
