FAQ

Why don't I see all menus or menu items?

The menus or menu items that you see depend on whether you are logging in or not. If you're not logged in as a user, you see the public part of the website.

If you log in then the menu items you see depend on your status. If you have status registered you have access to the private part of the website. If you have status author or publisher then you can also write articles. The default status is registered. The HIRLAM project leaders are default publishers. For change of status please contact me.
