MULTIPLE WINDOWS OPENING: If you are working in CQ and multiple windows are opening each time you navigate between the Site Admin and Content Finder windows, you'll need to change your default settings. Here are the instructions on how to change this to a single window setting.
- Once you’ve logged in you should see this screen below.
- Click on the Web Sites (globe) icon on the far left.
This brings up the Site Admin page.
Icons in the Top Toolbar
Site Admin Icon
The site admin screen is where you’ll navigate through your web pages and open them for editing as well as copy, delete and activate your pages.
Digital Asset Manager
This is where your images, PDFs and other digital files are stored.
Site Development Icons
These tools are used by the BC development team to manage the CMS. You shouldn’t need to access these areas of CQ.
In the Site Admin window, click on your username icon on the upper right hand side of the screen and select Properties in the dropdown menu.
In the resulting dialouge box, select Single Window for Windows Management.
