For my site, is used to access my web hosting control panel, so I am unable to access the CMS admin page.

How can I make my access SilverStrip CMS admin page?

I can get everything to work fine if I put the install files into and install from there, but I don't want people to have to type to get to the home page. If I DO install it like this, how can I make direct to the right place.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

All the rules for /admin/ would be stored in the cms/_config.php file. You might just find it easier to find and replace over the whole project!

Thanks willr!

In the end I installed SS in its own directory and used rewrite in .htaccess to redirect to the SS directory.

A note about this - hopefully this will change eventually - there is a patch for CMS Menu modifications that goes a small way to making this configurable. However, if you really need to change it, these are some of the steps you probably have to take (not tested!). A lot of it could be done with a global search and replace if you're careful.

Modify the /admin/ path in the following locations:

1. Link() functions in all LeftAndMain subclasses
2. CMS _config.php file directives
3. CMS Javascript behaviours
