Fields (Green Circle)

Depending on whether you edit content, news, files, contacts or forms, the interface might have some different fields. In general, you will use these fields:

privacy level

You should set that to everyone. Technically, you have to set separate privacy levels for e.g. the content and, in the sitemap, its entry in the menu. Saves you work to change the privacy levels only in the sitemap.

permissions

Do not bother.

heading

This is the headline of the page which also appears in the browser title.

description, keywords

Do not bother.

cssclass

The correct setting is important as it defines how your content is formatted on the website. If you don't like to write your own css style, every page is already provided with a standard style file that you can always use.

body

Well, this is the text body. See the next page for details.
