Using the Administrator PagesWith Tiki, you can complete all configuration and administration tasks from your Web browser, simply by using the Administration pages.
TipUse the Quick Admin module (enabled by defaults) to quickly access some of the most common Administration pages.
By default, the Quick Admin module contains the following buttons
- Wizards (introduced in Tiki 12)
- Control panels (Admin home)
- Clear all Caches
- Rebuild search index
- Plugin approval
- Smarty debug window
To access the main administration page, select the Settings > Control Panels option in the Menu module.
TipYou can also access the Administration page by typing http://www.yourdomain.com/tiki-admin.php in your web browser or by clicking Control Panels ( ) in the Quick Admin links.
The Administration page provides links to each section's own administration page. Features that have not been turned on are shown "grayed out" (such as the Blogs, in the example below).
Use the Help button (available on all administration pages) to find detailed help from the Tiki documentation.
Filtering and Finding PreferencesTiki has thousands of features, options, and settings. To help new administrators, use the Preference Filters to display only the most common options. If you are following along with this guide, be sure to enable the Basic and Advanced filters.
