A Brief Introduction to the Galaxie Blog Administrative Site

Galaxie Blog is a very powerful HTML5 blogging platform and it contains all of the essential tools to create a beautiful and compelling site.

The Galaxie Blog Administration site is used to securely manage your blog and can be accessed by clicking on the user icon near the top of the blog page or by appending '/admin' to the blog URL.

You must have the proper login credentials to access the administrative website. Passwords are encrypted using the highest available encryption standard and plain text passwords are never stored in the database.  

There are over fifty different administrative interfaces, and each interface is carefully designed for both mobile and desktop clients. You can administrate your blog using a mobile or desktop device. There is also native phone functionality, for example, when you are uploading media, can take a picture or use a picture previously taken from your phone.

We have taken great care to intuitively organize the different interfaces. These interfaces are simple and unobtrusive and typically only become available when you need them. 

Galaxie Blog uses a windowing system, similar to Windows or the Macintosh, to open up an interface. The windows have minimize, refresh and close icons at the top right hand of the screen. The minimize icon allows the user to minimize the window to navigate around or open up a new interface. Refreshing the window is handy if you want to set the interface back to its default state, for example, to clear up the filters that you may have applied to an HTML5 grid. 

The site is forgiving and invites exploration. If you erroneously click on a delete button, you will be prompted to confirm the deletion. A new user should be at ease while investigating the interfaces without worrying that something will go wrong.

If you are a site administrator, there are a dozen or so different major interface categories. There are multiple user roles and capabilities, if a user does not have permission or role they will not see the icon to launch the interface. 

Many of the interfaces initially open up an HTML5 grid with links to detail interfaces. Nearly every column in the grid is searchable and sortable. When editing a post, you can search for a partial title to find and open a particular post. We are covering these grids in more detail below.

There are scores of different advanced WYSIWYG Galaxie Blog editors. Each editor has a certain purpose, such as editing a post or uploading an icon for your site. All of the editors are WYSIWYG and offer a real-time preview. We will cover these interfaces in future posts.
