BannerOS is a marker based content management system that utilizes the Bootstrap framework.
The SHELL TEMPLATE is where you specify your website's template HTML and Head contents resources. Shell Templates should only be edited by advanced users.
BODY TEMPLATES determine the layout of each page's main content area. You can create additional body templates to create multi-column layouts.
Advanced functionality to end users becomes available when installing additional Grips. The main section of those new pages are controlled within each Grip, however the rest of the layout of those pages can be controlled by adding or editing Grip Templates and then selecting the desired Grip template within the Grip.
Additional CSS styling can be added to your sites and pages. They can all be added to a single stylesheet or can be organized in as may individual style sheets at you want.
Complex layouts can be created as a grid that will allow your desired content to be layed out in a structured format that will also responsive collapse into fewer columns on smaller devices. Grids can then be used as the structural format of Site Elements.
The SITE NAVIGATION section is used to manage marker-based horizontal nav bars or vertical nav lists. Site Navigations can be placed on any Shell Template or Page via the Insert Dynamic Content menu when editing the template or page. This is a newer BannerOS feature. If you have an older website, your site's navigation may be hardcoded into the Shell Template.
Site Elements are used to create a single combined block of code that can be placed on your site. It is a combination of a Grid layout and the selected content for each region of the grid.
Your website PAGES are static content pages. Pages are accessed via the Content menu. When creating new pages, you must choose a Shell Template and Body Template for the page to use.
Forwards (also known as Aliases) allow you to specify a path in a URL and designated another URL as a target. When a visitor ends up on a URL that matches, then they will be redirected to the target URL. This is useful to keep old links pointed at newer content as opposed to letting visitors see a 404 error message.
CONTENT BLOCKS are reusable, marker-based blocks of content that can be placed on any Shell Template or Page. Content Blocks are most often used for template elements that remain consistent from page to page, such as your website's logo or footer contents. Content Blocks can be placed on any Shell Template or Page via the Insert Dynamic Content menu when editing the template or page.
Content Popups can be created and placed on web pages. There can be an optional delay set for the pop up action. When a visitor goes to a page that has a popup, they will see a popup appear with the content within it and they can view that content and then close the popup. A delay can also be set so the popup doesn't appear to the same visitor within a period of time.
Your website SLIDERS allow you to display a series of rotating images, similar to a slide show. Once you've created a slider, you can add it to a Shell Template or Page via the Insert Dynamic Content menu when editing the template or page.
Your website MEDIA includes images, PDF's, videos, and other media files that can be used throughout your website. Media is accessed via the Media menu, and can be placed on any Shell Template or Page via the Insert Dynamic Content drop down located near the WYSIWYG editor when editing template or page content.
MEDIA CATEGORIES help you keep your images, PDF's and other media organized and easy to find.
