ocPortal Tutorial: Admin Zone overview
Written by Allen Ellis, ocProductsAs a webmaster, it is important that you are able to monitor and control every facet of your website. This is possible through the Admin Zone: the heart of your website. It can be accessed from anywhere by choosing the 'Admin Zone' zone link which appears at the bottom of every default-themed ocPortal page. You may be prompted to login again to confirm your current session – this is for added security.

The Admin Zone at first glance
Content Management ZoneThe Content Management Zone is the place to manage most of the categories and entries on the system.
A rough definition of what is considered content is anything you might expect to be readily added on-the-fly. Some forms of content are designed to be added from the main website (for example, comments and forum posts), so are not presented here.
The to-do list
ocPortal will attempt to mark whether or not these actions have been completely recently. For example, if it has been more than 24 hours since you updated your image of the day, it will be marked as 'not done'. You can choose how often you would like to do these activities (for example, making backups monthly instead of weekly) by going to the Setup Section then the 'Configuration' icon and then 'Administrative options'.
Version InformationThis section shows information about the current version of ocPortal that you are using, and whether or not it is the most recent one. If not, you will be given a link to upgrade to the latest version.
