This guide will introduce you to the fundamental concepts involved in setting up your new Artlogic website, as well as showing you around the content management system (CMS).
These steps help to ensure the security of your website as well as your own ease of use.
1. Bookmark your CMS
We recommend you bookmark your new CMS login page for quick and easy access.
2. Reset your password
- Go to Admin > Users and hover your cursor over your name so the pencil 'edit' button displays.
- Click the pencil to open your User record.
- Scroll down to the Password section.
- Enter a secure new password and click Save & close to activate the change.
3. Add more users
- Go to Admin > Users and click New Record at the bottom left of the screen.
- Enter the username and a secure password.
- Choose the user's permissions.
'Administrators' can control all content and settings.
- Click Save & close.
4. Complete your Data Controller details
Adding Artworks, etc
There are two main content types on the website:
Records and Pages.
Records (Artists, Artworks, Exhibitions)
Use records to create entries for your artists, artworks, exhibitions, press, news, events, etc.
The method of creating Artwork records depends on whether your website is connected to an Artlogic Database.
You can manage which records you see in your drop-down menu by de/activating them in Settings > General > Modules
Warning: If you don't see all the modules from the screenshot below in your own CMS, it might be because your package has limited features.
You'll want to edit these pages first:
- Your Contact page, which could describe what you do, how to get in touch, and where you're located.
- Your Home page, which can link to your forthcoming and current exhibitions, list recent news and events information, and describe what you do.
It's unlikely that you will need to enter information into many of the pages which have been preloaded to your CMS because they are dynamic.
You will not need to add information into other pages, but you can do so if you prefer to give further context to your visitor.
