simpleSite Folders / pages
User interface is a sensitive component of any Intranet or Internet web site. Whatever the object of a web site or the information that it may handle, user’s requests are handled by sending responses through pages that contain constitutive elements like text, images, or other data.
This frame allows you to manage files, images, pages… and other constitutive elements of your site’s user interface. Each of these elements is stored into one of site’s folders.

simpleSite helps you manage your site’s ‘physical’ folders (those that exist on the server’s hard disk) but also allows you to create and manage ‘virtual folders’.
Virtual folders are the representation of your site’s logical architecture. You can, for example, create a virtual folder named ‘welcome’, another named ‘products’ and a third named ‘sales’… You can then store ‘virtual pages’ in each of these virtual folders.
You can, for example, create two virtual pages named ‘product 1’ and ‘product 2’ stored in the virtual folder ‘products’… a virtual page ‘welcome’ stored in the ‘home’ virtual folder… and so on.
Using menus, hyperlinks or any other method, you can redirect your site’s visitor to either a physical or a virtual page according to your desired scenario and context.

In simpleSite, a folder is an entity that is identical to those you see and manage using Windows File Explorer. It is a container that hosts files and sub-folders.
The full path of a given folder is its parent folders list separated by slashes “/”:
Example: if Symbols is a folder located inside Niger, and Niger is itself a sub-folder of Images … the full path of Symbols would be: /Images/Niger/Symbols

Articles are the information proposed on your site.
Articles can be composed of plain text, html / xml formatted text. Their content can refer to any of site’s components or elements (ex: to include an image or other item…)
With simpleSite, articles are stored independently form site’s pages until you decide to publish them into a page of your choice.
After having been published, an article is kept in the articles store until you decide to delete it.

Page tabs
With simpleSite, any page (physical or virtual) can contain one or more tabs.
The page tab is the element through which simpleSite displays articles or other information.
So, for a page to display articles, it should contain at least one tab. Each page tab can contain unlimited number of articles.
An important point to note:
simpleSite considers a page tab as a ‘language dependent’ element. This means that according to the visitor’s language context, the same page can display different tabs, and so different articles, in the same or in different languages.

Publishing articles
To display an article, you just link the article to the page tab of your choice.
