Edit Access

Since ImCMS is care about document securing it provide editor section for configure user-role linking with permission set for current document. There are five types of roles:

  • NONE - no access to current page
  • VIEW - role with this permission can only view content on this page
  • RESTRICTED 1 - first custom permission set
  • RESTRICTED 2 - second custom permission set
  • FULL - role with this permission have access to any configuration of current document (usual it is admin)

More information about custom permission sets configuration is in :doc:`Text Document Management </content-management/document/text-document>` section

Edit Keywords

Each document in ImCMS system is indexed by the search system, that called :doc:`Solr </advanced-configuration/solr>`. That's why it is very important to mark document with special keywords that make searching easily.

Edit Categories

Since ImCMS provide categories, each document can categorized. It should be noted, that one document can be assigned to several categories at the same time if category type support multiply selecting.

Document Versioning

Imcms has versioning feature. Which can be disabled or enabled in properties.

If versioning is enabled: To apply changes press publish button on admin panel. Until that plain users. Will not seee any changes. Also you can preview new content before making publish by appropriate button on admin panel.

If versioning is disabled: No additional actions required.

Warning

If previously versioning was disabled by properties, all existed documents created during that period would be immediately published after change even if versioning will be enabled again. In order to make local changes to go to public version and press Publish after that versioning will start work on that document.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
