The Content Editor interface provides a multitude of features that allow you to create and maintain the content of your site. The Content Editor in combination with two extra applications, Media Shop and Workbox, gives the user full control over the site content. The Content Editor styling and functionality are inspired by Office 2007 and allow editors to simultaneously use the system and have the editing options at hand. This document describes how to use the various Content Editor Interface features.

Note: The Content Editor can run both as an interface and as an application. Click here to learn the differences between the Content Editor Interface and the Content Editor Application.
