My Folders

"Folders" hold all your website Files and Pages.

  • Folders offer you a way to organize similar Pages and Files.
  • Folders determine who can view and edit the contents of the Folders.
  • Folders provide a way for all Pages placed into the Folder to share common design and content.
  • Folders provide a way to archive Pages and Files.

Viewing My Folders

My Folders screen displays all the Folders that you have access to.  Folders and their contents are color-coded, based on their access control:

Public Folders: (shown as gray text) Select this access control option if you want Pages and Files in this Folder to be accessible to all website Visitors.

Guest Folders: (shown as orange text) Select this access control option if you want Pages and Files in this Folder to be accessible to all website Visitors, with registration optional.

Registration Folders: (shown in blue text) Select this access control option if you want Pages and Files in this Folder to be accessible to all website Visitors, but not until they have registered first.

Membership Folders: (shown as green text) Select this access control option if you want Pages and Files in this Folder to be accessible ONLY to website Visitors that have registered successfully as a member using a matching Member ID.

Private Folders: (shown as red text) Select this access control option if you want Pages and Files in this Folder to be accessible ONLY to Users that have been specifically been granted View or Edit access to this Folder.

Click on the Folder icon to expand or collapse the Folder and display it's contents. Click on the Folder name to edit the Folder.

If the Page's Page Style has been overridden by the Page itself, it will be displayed.

Archived Folders are shown in italic.

NOTE: Design Files are displayed in a light gray color. If you are a Site Designer, then you can click on the filename as a shortcut to access the Design File directly from this screen.

Archive Folder for Pages and Files that are no longer being used
Archive
This will archive all Pages and Files that are directly inside of this Folder (this will not archive sub-folders). This feature is generally used to allow you to unclutter liveSite without having to delete items. Archived items will no longer appear in various lists (e.g. All My Pages, All My Files, pick lists). Archived Pages may only be viewed by Users with edit rights to the Page, however archived Files may still be viewed by anyone, depending on access control.

Once a Folder is created, you can still change it's Parent Folder at any time.
