Context

There are four contexts in the interface: server, project, group and document. They are exposed in the horizontal navigation menu and are used for configuring user interface components such as pages.

User interface

The four contexts are exposed in the horizontal navigation menu across the top of each page. The context progress from left to right in the order they are listed above. Each change of context triggers changes in the the fundamental components of the interface. These components include the navigation sub menus, the blockset and the action icons.

Configuration

When creating a custom user interface component such as a page, block or dialog, it is important to specify the context it can appear in by listing the contexts in the @scope attribute of the layout configuration.
