Getting Started

1: Login to Magnolia

Before you can begin creating or editing project pages you first need to login to Magnolia at http://jboss.org/author

If you need a username and password, or are having difficulties logging in, then please contact an administrator:

Rysiek Kozmik -
Jozef Chocholacek - jchochol@redhat.com

We're currently creating one username per project which should be used by all members of the project team.

2: Create a new page

When logged into Magnolia you'll be presented with the AdminCentral page.

From here you have the ability to create new pages within your project, change their names to determine the URLs and edit the browser window titles. You can also move pages around within the site providing you have the relevant permissions.

Typically you will only have permissions to create/edit pages underneath your main project page. A pen symbol with a line through it in the Status column indicates that you don't have permissions for that page.
