      The Microsoft Content Management Server 2002 (MCMS) Web Author enables non-technical content contributors, who have the appropriate rights, to create and approve content on a Web site. Using the Web Author console, content contributors can update the Web site without leaving their Internet Explorer Web browser.

      By modifying the code included in an MCMS project, you can easily customize the Web Author console to meet your business needs. For example, you can change the look of the Web Author console, remove actions, hide or show status messages, and create a new channel action.

      This document describes the architecture of the Web Author console, and it explains how you can customize and extend the Web Author console for use with ASP.NET-based sites.

      The examples in this document use the WoodgroveNet sample site, which is included on the MCMS product CD.
