Lesson 14. Managing Content with Forms > Creating the Admin Section

Creating the Admin Section

By the time the site is complete, employees will be able to do a number of adminis trative tasks, which include inserting new Traveler's Journal articles, maintaining the country profiles, and maintaining the tour descriptions. All of these activities will be limited to those in the admin user group. It is a nice touch to create an administrative homepage—a single page that links to all of the different tasks that administrators can accomplish with the site.

In addition, creating the CMS features will mean creating several new pages. Each of these pages needs to have the Restrict Access to User server behavior applied to it in such a way that only members of the admin user group can get in. That could get monotonous, so to avoid that, you'll create a special admin-only template, called admin_template.asp, which is nearly identical to generic_template.asp, except that it'll have the Restrict Access to User server behavior already applied.
