What's New DriveWorks Live Modules

DriveWorks Live and Personal Web Edition (DriveWorks Administrator) now has a modular approach to designing the content of each page of the DriveWorks Live site.

  4. Click the Start button from the command bar

Once in Editing mode the modules included by default are shown in their respective positions.

The default modules can be excluded from the page by clicking the Remove link in the top right of the module.

Modules can be modified by clicking the Edit link in the top right of the module

To Reposition Modules

The layout of each page is made up of Module Groups.

By default each page has a:

  • Login module group that spans the header
  • Navigation module group which is the narrow column to the left under the Login module group
  • Body module group which is the wide column to the right of the Navigation module group

The names of each module group do not reflect its intention, it is the modules that sit within these groups that define what each group does.

Any number of modules can be placed in each of these areas.

Placing multiple modules within one area will position each module in rows.

To reposition modules the site designer must be in Edit mode.

Reposition existing modules by dragging the required module to a new position.

Select the middle, top edge point of an existing module to drag it into a position where a module group will expand when the module can be dropped into place.

Modules

The site designer provides standard modules for inclusion in the site.

To Add a New Module

Switch to Edit mode on the page the module is to be added.

Select the required module and drag into a module group area to position.

When the module is dragged over a module group on the web page the area will become active to indicate the module can be placed there.
