The Administration Panel provides access to the control features of your CMS. Each Administration Panel is presented in sections, the header, the main navigation, the work area, and the footer. The Dashboard tells you about recent activity both at your site and provides access to updating.
User-levels to control user-access to different features, so you can restrict the ability of individual users to create or modify content in your weblog, by changing their user-level. Each user can define a profile, with details such as their email address, instant messaging aliases etc, if they want to. Users can also control the way in which their details are displayed on the website.
The RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0 and ATOM specifications are fully supported, and what's more, just about any page on your website has an associated feed that your readers can subscribe to - there's a feed for the latest posts, for categories, comments, well, like we said earlier, for anything you want. The more options your readers have to keep track of different sections of your website, the easier it is for you to grow your brand.
Media is the images, video, recordings, and files, you upload and use in your website. Media is typically uploaded and inserted into the content when writing a Post or writing a Page. The Media Library SubPanel allows you to edit, view, and delete Media previously uploaded to your blog. Multiple Media objects can be selected for deletion. Search and filtering ability is also provided to allow you to find the desired Media.
Blogs are typically used by individuals or peer groups, but are occasionally used by companies or organizations as well. Content is the raison d'être for any website. Retail sites feature a catalog of products. University sites contain information about their campuses, curriculum, and faculty. News sites show the latest news stories. Without some sort of updated content, there is little reason to visit a web site more than once.

An award winning content management system (CMS) is critical for your business online because it enables you to keep track of every piece of content on your website, whether it's text, photos, music, video, documents and just about anything else you can think of. More imporetantly it requires almost no technical skills or knowledge to manage.

Manage Your PagesPages allow you to manage all your content easily, so for example you could have a static "About" page that you manage through the CMS.
