In-Browser Editing

In-Browser Editing

If your website is hosted with Adobe Business Catalyst, you can now make changes to the content of the live site through a browser. Then you can decide whether to merge those changes with the original Adobe Muse CC file. Follow these steps to give it a try:

  1. Choose File > Site Properties and then choose the Content category at the top of the Site Properties dialog box. Select Enable In-Browser Editing, if it's not already selected (see Figure 12). Click OK.
  2. Figure 12 Editing the site properties.

  3. Publish the site to Adobe Business Catalyst using the Publish link or by choosing File > Publish. (If you've already done this, skip to the next step.)
  4. After the site is published to Adobe Business Catalyst, choose File > Add In-Browser Editing User.
  5. The Admin Console website opens in the browser. By default, the Adobe ID registered with Adobe Muse is added as a user. You can add other users to the list, such as clients.

  6. Click the Invite Admin User button. Enter the email address and other information for the user who will be invited to edit site content. Click Select Roles in the User Roles option and select either the Administrators or Users role for that person (see Figure 13).
  7. Figure 13 Invite an administrator user to edit the site via browser.

  8. The user you invite will receive an email message with a login URL that he or she can click to log into the site admin area, using a browser. Assuming that you are the invited user, the remaining steps in this procedure describe how to edit the website via your browser.
  9. In the web page that appears when you click the link, enter a password, accept the terms of use, and click Continue, as shown in Figure 14. (The next time you click the same link, a login dialog box will appear instead of the login page.)

  10. After logging in, you can click the Edit link in the upper-left corner of the web page to begin editing the site content in the browser (see Figure 15).
  11. Figure 15 Click the Edit link to edit the site.

  12. Positioning your pointer over content in the browser highlights the editable content (see Figure 16). You can edit text and replace images, using the site library or your own computer as the source (see Figure 17). You also can navigate the links of the site; for example, to go to another page, by positioning the pointer over a link and clicking the Click Element icon to the right, or by clicking the link itself (if it isn't editable).
  13. Figure 16 Position the pointer over the content to highlight the editable material.

  14. When you're finished editing, click the Publish or Discard Changes button.
  15. To update the original Muse (.muse) file in Adobe Muse CC, open the site in Muse and choose File > Sync with Adobe Business Catalyst Site. A dialog box appears and takes you to each change so you can accept or reject the change (see Figure 18).
