About the Interface
The WYSIWYG Editor is often the default view when logging in using a DirectEdit link on a page. When accessing the CMS, other tabs, menus, and functionality are available depending on authority level and site design.
The OU Campus tabbed interface provides a view of the CMS. For example, the Content > Pages view shows a listing of directories, files, and page action icons. Depending upon the authority level, various tabs and other functionality are available. The available tabs are as follows:
- Add-Ons (if an Add-On has been added)
For example, for Level 5 through 9 user level, the Dashboard and Content tabs are available. Level 9 and 10 administrators can view the Admin tab. Level 10 administrators can view the Setup tab. The Add-Ons tab might also be visible if an administrator has added a link for the add-on tab.

The Dashboard facilitates a user's Inbox and Outbox, as well as the ability to compose messages and manage the workflow. It also shows Current Projects (pages checked out to the user), Broken Pages, and general user settings and preferences.
The Content tab is the most used section of OU Campus. It can consist of several submenu items depending on authority level. These include:
- Assets (as assigned)
- Blogs (if enabled)
- Recent Saves
- Recent Publishes
- Find/Replace (Level 10)
Content contributors can navigate the Pages view in order to edit, create, and publish new content. This includes adding assets, snippets, rss feeds and other content to pages. This might also include reviewing changed pages, assigning pages to an approver, and publishing pages. User level determines the available functionality of the Content tab.
The Admin tab, which is available to Level 9 and 10 administrators, can be viewed as the reporting area and content maintenance portion of OU Campus. The Admin tab is site specific, which means that the data displayed will be relative to the site in which the administrator is currently logged in.
The Setup tab, which is available to Level 10 administrators, can be viewed as the configuration and main administration portion of OU Campus. The Setup tab has some elements that are site specific, and other information that is applied to all sites within the account.
The Add-Ons tab provides an interface for custom applications. Available functionality can be setup by any Level 10 administrators.
The CMS layout also includes information regarding the current user, current site, logging out, and a Help system link.
Current User: Shows the user name for the currently logged in user.
Change Site: Displays the site listing for the account if the user has access to other sites.
Logout: Logging out of OU Campus displays the Login screen.
Help: This Help link is by default to the OU Campus Support Site, or an administrator can define a different URL for a Help system.
