What does this mean for CMS Users?

At this point, the main difference for CMS users is appearance.  However, some of the bug fixes will allow us to utilize some much needed features.

What Looks Different

 

The new login screen looks like this.
Login-ektron9
There is a new toolbar at the top of the screen when you are logged in to the CMS.  See below image.     

Top Toolbar

From this toolbar you can switch to view the page as it always appears (content view) or switch to edit mode.   While in edit mode, you can hover over your content area and a box will appear around it.  This is the Content Block menu.  Click the menu button in the top right corner and from here you can access the menu options.  This is where you will access the Edit in Context feature.  See below for screenshots of these features.
