The Dashboard

April 05, 2011

The Dashboard is the front page of the LiveWhale system. It provides an overview of the site, latest LiveWhale-related news, access to all groups you belong to, and displays a list of the most recently updated content.

After logging into LiveWhale, you can go to the Dashboard from any page on your site by clicking the ‘LiveWhale CMS: Lewis and Clark’ link at the left of the control bar or click on the “Manage your content” link in the right side of the control bar.

The dashboard is divided into seven sections.
