New Editor Mode Available for Beta Testing

We have a new WYSIWYG editor mode for websites, it is the future direction of our content management system and it is a major change in the way you will interact with our CMS.

Rather than navigating the CMS menus you can just navigate your site, then click on any element you want to edit.

We hope you will like the new approach, and it is definitely the fastest way to access your often used content.

Your hidden pages can be accessed via the Web Pages tab in the top menu. 

Click on the orange "Edit Content" button in the CMS.
