    Go take a look on www.oswd.org if you see something there that you fancy, let me know, and I'll be happy to convert it so it works with CMScout.

    "Smarty" is the language that CMScout uses to transfer information from the actual program to the template. The templates are actually made in a combination of html and smarty, but if you don't understand it, don't worry about it

    well, im secretly rather chuffed with myself....did you hear me squealing when I managed to change the logo on my page? Or when I figured out how the menus worked?

    Anyway, a few "techy" questions for you....

    a) When I am logged in as admin, i cannot see the actual website pages unless i log off or I am in editing mode. I get a message that I dont have access to the page? Im guessing its an authorisation thing, so where do I look. Its no biggie tho!
    b) Whats the difference (keep it simple plse) between a dynamic page and a static page...??

    Thanks for your ongoing support!

    a) Im sure Jedi will be along soon enough to explain that to you (i have no idea!)
    b) a dynamic page is one that changes....like a photo gallery or a news page....the information may not be the same every day. A static page is like an about us page....the information doesn't need to change and probably won't unless something major happens....like a local century perhaps

    a) As for authorisations, if you goto the admin panel, there is a link under the configuration section called "Authorisation Manager". From here you can add or remove authorisations for groups, or individual users.

    b) Jamie is right about the difference between a dynamic and a static page. Although in CMScout (Strictly speaking), a dynamic page is one that CMScout generates automatically depending on content on the website (Like the photo gallery, calendar, etc.) which a static page is one that you as the administrator adds.

    Thnks!

    Next question....I want to add a group calender. Have seen it on Jedi's site and want one of my own. Calender envy...

    Have looked at event manager and can events, but not a calendar. Probably me missing something.

    However, looked at CMSCOUT demo, and the calender there has a downlod for calendar. Which I have done. This is windows calender thingie. It says I can upload it onto a website and then asks for the address....would this be the hosting address or the website addresss or what address please???? And where would I put it? somewhere in the public_html bit? ANd how would I import it into my web page?

    I will pull together a guide (or cn update your manual for you jedi) on how to do this stuff (the green newbie muppet version).

    The manual is a wiki for the very purpose of allowing users to update it. So your welcome to update it!

    As for adding a calendar, that is really simple. To add a calendar, all you need to do is add a link for the calendar. I'm sure you must have figured out how to add menu items by now. When you add a menu item, you will see in that one of the options in the "Item" drop down box is "calendar". Select that, set all the other options as you want them, and click on Submit. Your calendar should then be accessible (If it's not, check the authorisation in the Authorisation manager).

    Hope that explains it, and that it makes sense!
