Glossary

  • Activity

    Activity is much like a logging system. It is a record of all the actions that have been performed on a given site. 

  • Authorisation

    Authorisation is the grouping of a number of features built into Edditt that when combined together allow you to require items to be approved before publishing, or alternative allow notification of changes to items to be sent.

  • Dashboard

    The Dashboard is the first thing users see when they login to Edditt. It is a page that gives an overview of the site they are Edditt.

  • Edditt instance

    Your Edditt instance is your own unique version of Edditt that you can brand and change according to your requirements. It is identified by your Edditt subdomain.

  • Groups

    Groups are a holder for a collection of users who share or require the same permissions. This allows you to set permissions at a group–level rather than modifying them for every user.

  • Inbox

    Inbox is the internal messaging system built into Edditt, allowing users to notify each other and where all system notifications are stored. Whenever a message it sent, it is automatically copied to the user’s registered email address.

  • Kernels

    Kernels are a means of templating your site setup to allow once–click reuse of the same modules.

  • Modules

    Modules are the core functionality of Edditt. There are a number of available module types that you set ap according to the needs of your site.

  • Notification

    Notifications are sent by the system at key moments and by your request. For example, if a user makes a change that requires approval.

  • Preview URL

    A preview URL is one that is set up to receive form data from Edditt in order to output a preview of how the currently entered data would look on the site if it were live.

  • Quicks

    Quicks are quick–links that can be set up by any user to speed up their way around the system.

  • Site instance

    A site instance is a site that has been set up to use Edditt, and so appears in the account list. Each site instance has a unique Edditt ID associated with it.

  • Users

    Users are editors who have been set up to use Edditt (note this is different from users of your site).

  • Webhooks

    Webhooks are a means of adding extra processing to an item after it has been editing. The system will post all the necessary data to the designated webhook url where your script can process it.
