Using the context menu

Compared to Cascade CMS 6 and 7

The right-click (or context) menu has been overhauled and expanded for Cascade CMS 8. 

  • Now accessible by right-clicking on any accessible asset. (compared to an arrow to the right of the asset in Cascade 6.xx and 7.xx)
  • Context-based; the folder will only show actions your user account is capable of. For example, if your user account cannot edit a particular page, the Edit option vill not be viewable.
  • Actions have been organized by their nature; day-to-day content changes appear as the top box, separated by a horizontal divider.
