Whenever a person signs in as editor, a big orange tool bar appears on the right side of the page. This has all the tools you need to organize and manage your Tideline site. This Editor Toolbar is broken into sections:

DAILY TOOLS
The essential tools you need to manage your Tideline day in and day out. The most common daily tasks are review and approve new posted items and read any messages sent to you by readers.

DESIGN & LAYOUT
Tools to quickly change the overall look and feel.

FRONTPAGE
Tools to customize the unique parts of the Frontpage.

POSTINGS
Tools to choose which kinds of Postings you want on your site...and how they are displayed.

PEOPLE
Tools to manage access, security and membership for your Tideline.

OTHER FEATURES
All the rest of the tools to control your Tideline website. Create new sections, manage subscriptions and more.

SUPPORT
Quick links to online manual and support topics. Also access to the Tideline Update Service to keep your Tideline up-to-date.

In addition, the Tideline interface changes for editors to reveal small stars throughout the website. Each star is a shortcut to the editor tool for that item.

Choosing one of these tools opens an options dialog with explanations and controls to manage that part of the website.
