Basics of Sitecore Control Panel
Sitecore control panel contains loads of functionality which has not been highlighted very well. [We use its "Clean Up Databases" functionality for cleaning up our Sitecore DB during maintenance].
To read more details about it, I visited SDN and found this SDN document : http://sdn.sitecore.net/Reference/Archive/SC53%20End%20User/Control%20Panel.aspx This document explains the functionality very well. But the screen-shots are from Sitecore 5.3 and few options has been removed and few has been added. So, thought to update the new screen-shot and this post is a result of it!
If you would like to know about each option, the SDN link is very helpful. OR why don’t give a try on your local environment and see what it does?
My favorite options from Sitecore Control panel are as below:
- Clean Up Databases :- http://sdn.sitecore.net/Reference/Archive/SC53%20End%20User/Control%20Panel/Database/Clean%20Up%20Databases.aspx
- Change Your Desktop Background :- Change background of your Sitecore desktop.
- Reset My Settings to Default Values :- Resets your profile settings e.g. If you have selected from Publish form that don’t show first page and after sometime you would like to see that first page you can reset it from here.
Happy Sitecoring! :-)
