Administer the Home page from the user interface 

You can make site-wide changes to the Home page application directly from the Home page user interface.

The Home page defines an administrator role, and users assigned this role have access to an additional Administration tab on their Home page. Clicking the Administration tab displays a simple, form-based user interface that allows administrative users to perform key tasks.

From this location you can:

The Home page caches the XML descriptors of widgets in memory on startup. You can refresh the version of the XML descriptor cached in memory for a particular widget by selecting the widget from the Enabled widgets list on the Administration tab and clicking Refresh cache. When you refresh the cache, the Home page fetches the latest version of the XML descriptor for the selected widget and updates the memory cache. This option is typically only used for third-party widgets at development time.

Changes made using the administration user interface occur in real time, and are immediately reflected in the Home page user interface.
