1 Overview

Interface bars are horizontal elements which can be turned on and off on every page. These allow for structural customisation of systems.


A detailed description of how the bxp interface is constructed can be found from the whitepaper on the subject. File:Whitepaper - We are BEautiful v1-0.pdf


2 Archetypes

There are four page types within bxp

  • Login
  • Main Menu
  • Section Menu
  • Page


On each of these pages can be a number of combinations of bars. Each bar has a unique number. The key number is 4. 4 is the content bar for that page. 4 MUST appear in the listing.


3 How to use the bars

To setup or change these options go to system settings in System Access Management.
