One of the features of SiteEngine CMS is the add-ons which are available for it. These are things that can be added to any standard content page within your site and enable very easy management and pre-styling of specific types of content.
To add one of these to your site, go to the page you are looking to edit and select “Edit All Page Properties”. Select the right-most tab, entitled “Add-ons”.
If there is no currently configured add-ons you will see the below;
To configure an add-on on the current page, click the “View Available Add-ons” link. There will be a popup which will list the available add-ons for that page (see below).
In the above image, the first one in the list (TW Document Plug-in) has been selected by clicking on it. If that is the Add-on you wish to configure on that page, simply click the insert button. Once configured, the Add-ons tab will show the now configured Add-on including an option to choose where the add-on is to display on the page (See below).
Depending on the configuration of the particular Add-on when you re-load the page interface there may be a new button on the page options page. In the case of the Documents add-on as above, see the new button below;
In the interface for all page options (what comes up when you click the “Edit All Page Properties” button), there may also be a new tab to edit the data in the Add-on;
When you click on either of the buttons above, a window will pop-up with an interface for managing the data in the Add-on. For specific information on each Add-on and its corresponding interface, see the manual for each.
