2. Accessing the website
4. Useful links
Site@School's main features are:
Site@School is a standard option in ServerAtSchool and chances are that it was installed as part of your ServerAtSchool installation.
When you want to see the website from within the school, i.e. from a workstation connected to the local area network (LAN), you can also use the shorter URL http://server/ to see the website.
Website maintenance can be done by logging on to the CMS. The logon dialogue can be found at http://www.praeceptor.exemplum.serveratschool.net/starnet as illustrated below.
When you want to logon to the CMS from a workstation connected to the LAN, you can also use the shorter URL http://server/starnet.
You need a valid combination of a username and a password to enter the CMS. In the illustration above the username 'webmaster' and the corresponding password were already entered into the dialogue. Note that the password is displayed as a string of asterisks. This is a security measure.
NOTICE: You should replace the part 'www.exemplum.serveratschool.net' with the actual name of your server at school.
If you find that the online documentation was not installed on your school's server, you can download it from the project's home page at http://siteatschool.sourceforge.net under 'Downloads'.
A good starting point to read is the 'Guided tour'. This is a brief description to get you started easily and quickly. The only thing you need to actually work with the CMS is a valid combination of a username and a password. Please ask your local systems administrator or your ICT coordinator for more information.
The home page of the Site@School project can be found at http://siteatschool.sourceforge.net. Here you can find information on latest versions, bugfixes, a link to the S@S-forum, available templates, and other goodies.
If you want to ask questions on the S@S-forum you should be familiar
with 'How To Ask Questions the Smart Way', by Eric Steven
Raymond. This enlightening document can be found at:
Do not ask Mr. Raymond any questions. This explicit request is at the beginning of his text. Reading this document before asking questions on which the answers can be found in the manual or in the S@S-forum, greatly relieves the pressure on the Forum's maintainers.
