Online management help

Common management page elements

Except for the main content, all management pages share the same elements.

Top navigation bar & heading

Descriptions of the navigation bar and heading items at the top of the page.

The common items of the top navigation bar and heading for each management page are:
Management page's top navigation bar and headingabcdefghi
a♿ ☐Accessibility toggle. Makes links underlined and text non-justified for the current session only
bUser IDIdentifier for the current user
cLocaleCurrent locale, as a link to the Locales section at the bottom of the page if more than one locale. The * indicates the master locale
dHeadingIndicates the current management page
eLast pageName of the last page visited. If the target page is about a specific item, its identifier is displayed. Only on the Work list page. Replaced by Work list on other pages as a jump back to the Work list page
fDomainName of the current domain
gRefreshJump to the same page while keeping all the state settings, but without triggering any site changes. Typically used to extend the page timeout
hHelpLink to the current page's associated online help page on the Smallsite Design site
iHomeLink to the home page of the main subsite

The Refresh button is to be used for refreshing management pages, rather than the browser's refresh icon or the F5 key, to maintain the current state of the page. Similarly, avoid using the browser's back and forward buttons for the same reason. However, the browser's navigation keys can safely be used to return from pages other than management pages. This is because the browser still remembers the session ID buried in the management page.


If more than one locale, even if disabled, a row of buttons is displayed to allow jumping to the same page but showing the text in the language and script of that locale, and allowing editing of it.

The layout will change to accommodate the reading direction conventions for the locale. This is why start and end are used throughout this documentation when describing the relative position of elements, rather than left or right.
