Logging InLink to this section

The DirectEdit link is on every page of your website, click to log in to Omni CMS. When you log in with the DirectEdit link, you immediately see the edit mode of the website page you logged in from.

You can also log in to Omni CMS using the default login page.

Default login to Omni CMS, with "username" and "password" fields and a "Reset Password" link.

Enter your username and password and click Log In. Unless your school uses another method of authentication such as Central Authentication Service (CAS) or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), click the Reset Password link to reset your password. The reset link is emailed to the address in your user settings; if you do not have a valid email address in your settings, you won't be able to reset your password.

If your account is locked, contact an administrator at your school to unlock it. 

DashboardLink to this section

If you log in to Omni CMS using the default login page rather than DirectEdit, you are taken to your dashboard. Go to your dashboard anytime from the Main menu by clicking Dashboard > My Dashboard. The dashboard shows your recently visited pages, assets, components, and snippets; your mailbox; and select gadgets.
