The terms we'll use to describe your website
Use this page to learn a few terms we'll refer to in our guides, and to understand a bit more about your back end navigation.
These terms are used to identify areas and features in your CMS and we'll use these terms when we reply to your support queries.
Your account ID is used in your website CMS: https://www.website-accountid.artlogic.net.(and your Artlogic Database URL: https://www.app.artlogic.net/accountid).
Sometime also referred to as the Client ID or shortname, we might ask for this information when we help you with support queries or billing requests.
This dropdown in the menu of your CMS is available to Administrator users only. This is the person/s who is responsible for managing your website and will be noted and can be changed under Users.

An artist's sort will define how your system organises the artist alphabetically.
The back end is the more administrative side of your site that can only be accessed with your login details. Sometimes used interchangeably with the term CMS.
In addition to our template pricing options, we also provide a bespoke website design service.
Beta features are newer pieces of functionality that are in the process of being rolled out to our clients more widely. During this phase, we will offer some clients the chance to become 'beta testers' if it is appropriate. While we warmly welcome feedback on beta features, they will still be in active development, so improvements and fixes may need to be considered more carefully before they can be actioned.
CMS (content management system)
The CMS is the structure that you use to edit and update your website. To log in to your CMS you will need your username, password and the URL of your CMS, which will look like this: https://www.website-accountid.artlogic.net.

These pages are automatically populated by records. You do not need to edit the pages themselves or add any information to them. For example, a list of Exhibitions records will appear automatically on the Exhibitions page without you making any changes to the Exhibitions page itself.
A Feature Panel is a way to create more content on your page, whether that is a grid of images, a carousel, etc. This content can also be linked to different pages on your website.

Server (and dedicated server)
All our websites exist on servers. These are a centralised and secure network of resources or services. They can provide various functionalities, often called "services", such as sharing data or resources among multiple clients, or performing computation for a client. If you have a dedicate server, it will because you site demands more capacity to handle large influxes of online traffic.
If you are preparing to launch a "print drop", where you expect a high spike of people visiting your site, let us know, so we're able to prep the server.
Refers to the images in the vertical area next to the main content of a website. These are any uploaded standalone images that show in the sidebar for each page. Whether they appear cropped or uncropped can be edited by going to CMS > Settings > Settings > Layout.
