How to work with the administrator’s panel

Admin Bar has a number of Control Panel functions. Here you can read how to use them and what they can do

If you do not want to read everything follow the links: tabs: General, Control, Addition, Users, Multimedia, Builder (or Design), Help

Key words: Admin Bar, hide Admin Bar from definite pages, management of Admin Bar, management of a website via Admin Bar, closing of Admin Bar, administrator’s panel on a website.

I Enabling of Admin Bar. Admin Bar is enabled by default for "Administrators" group. It can be enabled/disabled in user groups settings (CP -> Users -> User groups). You can make it available for all groups except the default "Checked", "Users" and "Guests". Admin Bar can’t be disabled for administrators because many control features are located on this panel. Note: if the Admin Bar is not visible for administrators you should just resave permissions for this user group.
II Usage of Admin Bar. After Admin Bar has been enabled the administrators will see a bar with control features at the top of site pages.
1 "General". Here you can see the link(s) to your profile(s) (local or uNet, or both; depends on the allowed methods of authorization), as well as the buttons for the Admin Bar management.
1.1 Login to Control Panel (CP). If you click on this item you will be redirected to the CP login page (http://site_url/admin). Everyone can get to this page but only the person who knows the CP password can log in to the Control Panel.
1.2 Admin Bar color. Click on it and you’ll see a small panel with the list of available colors. Anyone who has access to the bar can change the color, and the color of Ajax-windows will change as well for all users (it is impossible to change it separately for yourself).
1.3 Logout, closing of Admin Bar. If you click on 'Logout' you will be logged out of the website. By means of the last line you can close the Admin Bar but note that when you refresh a page or go to another page it will appear again.
2 "Control". The features of this tab refer to the management of entries at your website.
2.1 Inactive entries. This feature allows to quickly and easily find non-activated/non-moderated entries on your website (entries of all modules except the comments). If there are pending entries you’ll see the name of a module and the link to the page with all inactive entries in the pop-up window. If there are no such entries the system will inform you.
2.2 Comments management. This feature permits to quickly view/edit/delete/activate/deactivate necessary comments of any module (without the necessity to browse all entries).
2.3 Orders management. This item will appear if you have E-shop module installed. Here you can manage e-shop orders quickly and easily.
2.4 File Manager. By means of this button any administrator can enter File Manager without having the access to CP. Here you can create/edit/remove folders and files like in CP.
2.5 Notifications about updates. This item allows subscribing to notifications about new entries and/or comments of any website module. You can also select the way in which you want to be notified – PM or E-mail.
2.6 IP blocking. If you need to block/unblock IP address of a user/several users you can do this in this menu. Enter the necessary addresses/subnetworks (each in a new line) in the pop-up window that will appear. All users with their IPs on this list will see the message "Access denied. You IP address is blocked" when trying to add an entry.
2.5 URL blocking. This feature is similar to IP blocking. When using this feature all forum posts, module entries and comments will be blocked when being added if they contain the URLs from this list. You can add here links either with "http://", "www" or without them, the result will be the same.
3 "Addition". By means of this tab all users, having access to Admin Bar can quickly go to the page for the adding of new entries of any active module. Here one can also add site pages without the access to CP.
4 "Users". This tab is used for the work with users. The first button permits to open the page with the list of all site users, where you can see all registered users and use sorting by username, registration date, number of messages and so on.
4.1 Removal of user’s entries. This option permits to easily and quickly remove all entries added by a user in one of the modules or all of them. To do this specify the exact user’s nickname, select the modules where you want to remove entries, enter security code and click "Remove".
4.2 Mass PM dispatch. This button will redirect you to the page where you can send PMs to necessary user groups. You can also access this page from your profile.
4.3 View site as ... This feature allows you to view your site as a user of any other group. You’ll be able to view the site with the settings and permissions of other user groups. The only difference is that Admin Bar will remain in its place.
5 "Multimedia". By means of this tab you can access multimedia features of your website (players, editors...).
5.1 Graffiti. A flash drawing tool from uCoz, by means of which you can easily draws a simple picture or decorate a photo uploaded from your computer.
5.2 Upload video/audio. These two buttons simply open the window of File Manager where only video/audio file formats are displayed.
5.3 Insert video/audio. By means of these features you can generate BB/HTML codes of a player for video/audio playback at your site or forum. For this purpose specify a direct link to a video/audio file uploaded to some third-party hosting or to the File Manager (see item 5.2), and then the codes will automatically appear in the second and the third fields.

Lykos, did you try to use another browser? Describe how you are trying to change the color.

Hello, I am not seeing my admin bar now. The only thing that I have done is run a spyware remover that removed some cookies. I have tried to go back into user settings and save as suggested in first post by Sunny but that did not work for me. I do see &admin_bar$ in top part of page but... I've looked through forum and have not found an answer so hopefully I haven't overlooked. Oh I did do one other thing and add a meta tag to the top part of site also but $admin_bar$ is still there. Thanks for any help in advance. My site is http://www.thesecrettruth.ucoz.com

Ok I've restored and it allowed me to login for one and now I see the admin bar. The odd thing is before the restore I used the correct password to login and it would say user disabled and now after restore I log in with the same password and everything is ok... hmm

For what im understanding you don´t want see that your visitor to see your adim bar?

only adim can see the adim bar.

and only apear to adim, not to visitor nor users only adims.

its really useful and should not be removed nor tempered with.

hope it helps smile

Note: If you want to see as a user you can go to users--->see a user,guest,moderator,etc.

You can also hide unnecessary buttons from the Admin Bar (e.g. if you want to hide "Site design management" button from administrators). Each "button" at the Admin Bar band has its id = admBarP1, admBarP2, admBarP3 etc. So, let’s examine the mentioned example - we want to hide design management item from moderators. Look into the source code of Admin-bar - "Design" has id="admBarP3".

Thanks for your replies but I was wondering how to do this. I didnt really understand the button "id" part nor where to find it. sad

elijahramos, make sure the '$ADMIN_BAR$' tag is in your design customization.
