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.

bijayapaudel, it looks like the problem is at your end. Try the following:

Quote
For testing purposes try to work from another copy of operating system, another computer and, if possible, using another network provider. E.g., you can check your website from one of Internet clubs as they meet all the mentioned conditions.
If you do not have such possibility, then it is desirable to do the following actions step by step:
1. Disable your firewall, antivirus while running diagnostics;
2. Disable the traffic saving services (e.g., Traffic Compressor);
3. Disable the torrent client or any other services that can create a lot of connections, if any;
4. Try to use another browser or update the current one. Maybe some necessary browser functions are disabled or are working incorrectly. If your Internet Explorer version is less than 8 – install latest Windows updates, or install Internet Explorer 8 as a separate package; if you use Opera version less than 10.60 or Firefox less than 3.6.3 – update the browser.
5. Make sure that cookies are accepted by the browser, clear the cookies history; check whether JavaScript is enabled in your browser; clear the cache (temporary files) of the browser. You can find the information on how to do this in the "Help" tab of your browser.

I have a question about "View site as"

The "Moderators" user group has less functions then the "Administrators" group. But if a user of the "Moderators" group go to Admin Bar > User > View site as... and click on the "Administrators" group, then he can do everything what a Administrator can do. How do I protect this?

Thanks
Sunny

SkiRico, yes, there is such peculiarity. It has been already forwarded to the developers to be fixed but I can't promise it will be very soon. Now I can only suggest that you disable access to Admin Bar for the moderators.

I recently was updating my site and I created a new block an pasted a custom widget in it. Now I have no options in my admin bar. Its just a blank blue bar.

Ok sorry for asking this question I have resolved my problem. The problem was I created a new block and inside the blocks html content I added custom code and it made my admin bar options not to display. What I did was I went into Control panel/custom design and in the first container is where I had the block with custom code. I just deleted the block clicked saved and went back to view my website and all my admin bar options are now restored.

Sorry for taking up forum space. I figured this out on my own by luck.

Hello,

I think I goofed up! lol I tried to experiment with different custom vertical menu's and now my admin bar is messed up. It's showing nothing but a blue bar (like its always done) and how much web-space I've used but now I can't change it back. I racked my brain trying to get it back. wacko I can work in the back end of the website though. I can provide my website if you wish by PM but don't wont it public yet... I tried searching for the answer but came up short... I have added 1 JavaScript to my site but it's in the footer. Here's a screenshot of my admin bar. Thanks smile

Rhineus, try to delete the script(s) that you've added. If it doesn't help, provide your website address.

Hello Sunny,

Yes, I've already deleted my JS script and it didn't work since it's a simple "last updated script" and I added it before I did this... my goof up. lol I'm going to leave my "last updated script" off until I get this straitened out. I'm going to give you my website link but only by PM, since I don't want my site public yet. Thanks for understanding. smile

Rhineus, you need to delete the following script from the template "The first container":

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

Im building a new site

moviecube.do.am

What I need is just a favor
Is there a way to put the admnistrador bar in the bottom of the site or build it like a menu,well anywhere but the top

Its for personal use cause Im having prob editing cause the administador bar robs around 20px of top space ,its not floating in other words if i put a code like this one:
Quote
<div style="
top: 200px;
left: 150px;
width: 200px;
height: 160px;
position: absolute;
z-index: 1;
visibility: show;style=" align="center" ;="">
<img src="/Design/coming-soon.png" border="0" alt="" width="75px" height="75px"></div>


I can edit the top right but when users see it its in the difrent spot and its all cause the administrator bar
So please if its posible I would like to change the positiion to make it more easier editing for me

carloscompu, the admin bar can't be moved to the bottom since there are drop-down lists in each item. And I'm afraid it is not possible to display it as a menu either.
