A galaxies site is a self-contained website with its own Control Center and allows you to create separate sites for events, venues or even your entire institution.

Jadu Galaxies provides you with the power to:

  • Manage internet, intranet, extranets and portal sites from one location.
  • Create web front-ends with a dedicated CMS while upholding standards-based, accessible CSS design.

Managing Galaxies sites

Galaxies are managed via the Galaxies menu.

If your account has permission to access galaxies, you navigate to their management area by the following:

  1. Click the Galaxies icon in the left navigation bar. The Galaxies menu will open.
  2. Click the Sites link in the first group of links. A list of sites will now be shown, with links to create new sites if your account has the appropriate access permissions.

The number of Galaxies sites that can be live at once is determined by your license.

Creating a new Galaxies site

Create site wizard

  1. Navigate to the Galaxies site management area.
  2. Click the Create site button. The Create Galaxies Site panel will open.
  3. Provide the Site name and the Web address (URL) values. The web address must be unique in the system, it can not conflict with any existing friendly URLs, routes, or other Galaxies sites. Once complete, click the Next button.
  4. Enter the Username, Password and Email address for the first site administrator account. Be careful - the username can not be updated later, however the email address and password can. Click the Next button to proceed to the next stage.
  5. Click the Create site button to proceed to create the site.

Once the site is created, the new site will be added to the bottom of the site list, and be shown in an offline state.

You will need to apply a design to the site before the site can be published. Click the Design link to do this.
