Getting started

This topic describes how to log in to an Episerver website, access features and navigate the different views. The login procedure may be different from what is described here, depending on how your website and infrastructure are set up.

Logging in

As an editor or administrator, you usually log in to your website using a specified URL, a login button or link. Enter your user name and password in the Episerver login dialog box, and click Log In.

Accessing features

What you are allowed to do after logging in depends on your implementation and your access rights, since these control the options you see. When logged in, the Episerver quick access menu appears in the upper right corner.

Selecting CMS Edit takes you to the edit view and other parts of the system. You can go directly to your personal dashboard by selecting the Dashboard option.

Your menu options vary depending on your access rights. These user guide examples assume that the user has full permissions to all functions in Episerver.
