Control panel basics

MIDOP let you customize most aspects of the output website through a simplified control panel.
You can access it by opening a web browser and surf to:


Available settings are organized in pages:

Here is out it looks like the control panel navigation bar at the top of the page.

Changing settings

Every time you change one or more settings in a page, these changes must be saved pressing the button “SAVE SETTINGS” in the upper right of the page.
If you don’t save the current status of the page before changing to another page, all of your changes will be lost.

Sometime you will see the character * beside a setting: such symbol indicates required fields that must be filled.
Whenever a required field is not set, MIDOP will complain, and will not allow you to save the page. In order to continue, you must fill such field.
In order to better identify which is the setting that require your attention, it will be enlighted as shown in the screenshot below:
