The editing user interface of Composum Pages ist the central tool to browse through your repository und to manage your sites content.
The Pages Stage
The 'Stage' is the editing frame of the Composum Pages user interface. There are some tool panels arranged around your content page. The two sidebars on the left and on the right side and the Selection Toolbar on top the the Stages view.
You can resize both Sidebars with the Arrows Icon and move the Top Tool Bar. With the Eye Icon it is possible the enable/disable the overlay mode of the Panels. This means it is possible to say the Main Page Frame should start/end at the edges of the Panels or the Panels should slide over the Main Page Frame.
The left sidebar contains the three main navigation tools:
