Before you start with XCC we suggest you to have a look at our Videos of XCC at https://connections-apps.com/xcc. Alternative: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kc7qqVzQG9U For a more technical documentation please use the XCC - Technical User’s Guide.

You can also have a look at our video: Alternative: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbqZ6Ukq93c 1.1 Websphere Application Server-Admin (WAS-Admin) Person, who is able to install XCC and adjust XCC configurations on the IBM Websphere Application Server. 1.2 Admin Admins are Connections users with special XCC permissions. They are able to configure the Custom Homepage within Connections and define the display of widgets, navigation and layout. Furthermore, an admin can move and configure each widget. Admins can only select channels over the configuration masks, which they are member (community member) of. 1.3 Content Master Content Masters are Connections users with special XCC permissions. They can configure each widget and are able to add widgets, remove widgets or access the XCC-Page configuration with the “Customize” function. A Content Master is not able to create/delete pages, upload/delete Files or to update the license key. He only can select channels via the configuration masks, which they are member (community member) of.

TIMETOACT GROUP Im Mediapark 2 D-50670 Köln +49 221 97343-0 info@timetoact.de www.timetoact.de 8 / 116 1.4 Reader Readers are a group of IBM Connections users, who are able to see and use the offered widgets. The displayed content can vary according to permissions and personalization. Permissions in this case refer to the authorization of the content source (e.g. a closed community) within CNX.

TIMETOACT GROUP Im Mediapark 2 D-50670 Köln +49 221 97343-0 info@timetoact.de www.timetoact.de 9 / 116 2 Admin Dashboard The Admin Dashboard is reachable through the URL <yourDomain>/xcc/admin. You will find system configurations there, so be careful with that. In this chapter we will explain some functionalities that will be helpful. The following options can be found in the Admin Dashboard and are well explained in the “XCC – Technical User Guide”: • Enable/Disable Backup • Set Connections Context-Roots • Set Customization folder • Set Connections Theme • Set Anonymous Access 2.1 Admin Caching For every User all requests to the server from XCC are cached for 15 minutes. This will increase the performance. However sometimes this will result in confusion, if the editor published a new blog entry and it is not shown directly on the XCC pages. Therefore you can disable the Caching for Admins. You will find this setting in the Admin Dashboard in the Global Settings tab.

If you are Admin, you can reach the Admin Panel on every XCC page by clicking the “Customize” button. 3.1 Grid & Layout The Custom Homepage can either be displayed above the Activity Stream and with the Connections built-in Right-Column or as separate page. You have to choose a layout for your Custom Homepage. Default is Grid 1. You can choose between 19 different layout grids. It is possible to activate Activity Stream and Right Column separately. If activated, Right Column and Activity Stream show up at the positions pointed out by the green and blue colors in the selected layout grid.

TIMETOACT GROUP Im Mediapark 2 D-50670 Köln +49 221 97343-0 info@timetoact.de www.timetoact.de 11 / 116 Depending on the chosen layout grid, it is possible to implement 1- to 4-column layouts. The width of the widgets will automatically adjust to the width of its containing "placeholder". You can add Widgets by clicking on them in the Widgets tab. They will be moved to the first free position in the layout grid. After that you can move them around by dragging and dropping them to the desired position. As a visual helper during that operation, a green visualization appears if you drag a widget over a valid placeholder position. It is also possible to swap widgets. Just drag and drop one widget into a filled placeholder to exchange the position of both affected widgets. Only the positions of the Right-Column and Activity Stream are disabled for drag and drop. 3.1.1 Include Custom Grids If you want to include your own grid, you can upload a html file in the “XCC Settings” tab. By using the filename GridLayout1.html you exchange the built-in grid 1 structure with your own. Since there are 22 pre-built grids, you are able to create 22 custom grids, while the built-in grids are being overwritten.

TIMETOACT GROUP Im Mediapark 2 D-50670 Köln +49 221 97343-0 info@timetoact.de www.timetoact.de 12 / 116 You activate the custom grid for a XCC Page by selecting the corresponding layout in the “Page Settings” tab. We recommend you to use a template for creating custom grids. Please contact us for assistance at xcc-support@timetoact.de. 3.1.2 Include Custom CSS and Images If you want to include your own CSS, you can upload a stylesheet file in the “XCC-Settings” tab. Please make sure not to use an already existing file-name, because the upload overwrites older versions without further inquiry. Images (e.g. *.jpg, *.png) requested by your CSS can be uploaded through the same upload-form. After uploading your CSS, you can select the uploaded stylesheet file for the current page in the “Page Settings” tab under the “Layout” selector. To edit multiple pages you can go to the “Page-Management” tab and edit a page. Click on the wrench icon and it will open a dialog, allowing you to specify a CSS for each page. 3.1.3 Create Custom CSS The instruction given in this documentation demands basic CSS-Knowledge. A free online- guide can be found on http://www.w3schools.com/css/. You can customize the appearance of nearly every visible element of your XCC. CSS- language depends on order and specificity. To detect which selector you have to use to change an attribute (color, size, etc.) we recommend you to use either the Developer-Tools of Google Chrome (https://developer.chrome.com/devtools) or the Developer-Toolbar of Mozilla Firefox (https://developer.mozilla.org/de/docs/Tools). Your customized CSS is loaded last. This way using the same selector as the one that is applied should change the appearance of the element. If not and even an increased specificity does not result in the desired behavior the !important-keyword will grant you access to the attribute.

TIMETOACT GROUP Im Mediapark 2 D-50670 Köln +49 221 97343-0 info@timetoact.de www.timetoact.de 13 / 116 Uploaded images are located in the same folder as the CSS. No path has to be specified. 3.1.3.1 CSS for all Pages If you are using one XCC page only or want all XCC pages to behave and appear in the same way, it is recommended to use CSS selectors starting with the .xccstyle body-class. Example: (setting up a red background) 3.1.3.2 CSS by Page-ID Through the .{page-id} body-class you are able to set styles, which exclusively apply to the XCC page having the page-id. This way you can avoid uploading CSS files for each XCC page you want to appear different from the standard. Example: (setting up a green background exclusively for my-special-page) 3.1.3.3 CSS by Grid-Layout If you want your pages to behave different depending on what grid-layout (see 3.1) is selected, we recommend to select by .Layout{#} body-class in your CSS. Example: (setting up a blue background for all pages in grid-layout 17) 3.1.3.4 CSS for Widgets Customizing the widgets in general is possible through several classes. XCC-Widgets have a standard structure: Use CSS selectors similar to .xccstyle .xccWidget .wheader .wtitle if you want to customize the overall-appearance of your widgets. 3.1.3.4.1 Type-Specific It is possible to apply styles to specific widget-types (e.g Top-News-Widget). We recommend you to use a attribute selector on the data-wtype-attribute, because it allows to customize header/title and body of the widget, while .{widget-type}-class is limited to the body. Example: (setting up a red font-color for the title of all Top-News-Widgets) 3.1.3.4.2 Position-Specific By referring to the position-attribute you can style widgets placed on a specific grid-position. The top-left grid-position is always position=”0”. Example: (setting up a red font-color for the title of the widget on grid-position 0)

TIMETOACT GROUP Im Mediapark 2 D-50670 Köln +49 221 97343-0 info@timetoact.de www.timetoact.de 14 / 116 3.2 Include Custom.js If you want to include customized JavaScript you have to download the custom.js. You can find this file in the XCC Settings tab in the customization file list. Alternatively, you can use the Direct Edit button. Within this file you will find an init-function, where you paste your custom JavaScript. After you finished, upload the file again and the XCC will use your custom JavaScript. 3.3 Customize the language file You can create a new language file, by downloading the template file and editing a copy of it or by using the Direct Edit button. The name of the language file needs to consist of the prefix "xcc-" and the abbreviation of the language it is intended for. You can find the language files in the “XCC-Settings” tab of the admin panel. Here you can download and upload the language files. The file contents need to be of type JSON. This JSON format basically consists of key value pairs that define the String to be used in the language the file defines. If you omit a key-value-pair, the string denominated by that key will appear in its English default. If a language file for a chosen

TIMETOACT GROUP Im Mediapark 2 D-50670 Köln +49 221 97343-0 info@timetoact.de www.timetoact.de 15 / 116 language is not available, the Messages used within XCC will remain in its English defaults. Messages presented exclusively to Content Masters or Admins will always be English. You can switch the language in the IBM-Connections header. After uploading your edited language file, the changes take immediate effect, so reloading the page or changing your language to the just uploaded one will bring up the settings you have just uploaded. You are able to rename each grid `template` with the language file. Therefore you have to use the label “grid_name_X”. X represents the ID of the grid layout. 3.3.1 Update language files If you want to reinitialize the language files, maybe because they are not up-to-date, you should to the following steps. 1. Backup your language files by downloading them from the UI 2. Delete the language files 3. Go to the Admin Dashboard into the “Language Files” page and press the reInit button 4. Download the updated language-files 5. Compare if you did changes in the backup language files and move them to the updated language files 3.4 Direct Edit for *.css, *.js and *.json Files The Direct Edit option offers the opportunity to edit stylesheets, JavaScript- and Language- Files without having to download the file and re-upload it.

A dialog will open and you can choose your new widgets type name. If the name is valid, the input field will be visualized green. Else the field will be visualized red and the “Create” button will be disabled. The new widget will appear in the admin panel in alphabetical order. If the new widget is not displayed instantly, try reloading the page. 3.7 Integration of the Navigation If activated, the navigation will be shown across the complete width of the page and above the widgets. Activate it within the “Page Settings” tab of the admin panel and select a Community. By clicking on the checkbox you can disable the navigation. You have three options to display the navigation: On top of the page, left or right-adjusted. By default the Navigation is shown at the top. An arrow will show you, that a deeper level exists.

TIMETOACT GROUP Im Mediapark 2 D-50670 Köln +49 221 97343-0 info@timetoact.de www.timetoact.de 18 / 116 Short description: The vertical navigation of the custom homepage derives from the horizontal Wiki-navigation of an editorial Community. Content source: A Connections Community is configured as content source for this widget. This Community has to contain a Wiki. Expected format: Displayed in the horizontal navigation are wiki pages of the selected Community, including their hierarchy. The navigation can open the Embedded Experience, forward to an URL or just can be used as a placeholder. To include links to other sources, paste the URL of the source into the wiki page. If a URL is the beginning of a wiki page, the navigation will forward to this URL. So you can also paste a link to another XCC page in there. If you want to have a normal element in the navigation, which will not link to a site or open an embedded experience, you can use an empty Wiki Page. To open the external link in a new window you only need to select this option for this link in Connections.

As well in the “Page Settings” as in the “Page Management” tab of the admin panel you are able to select “Restricted”, “Public” or “Anonymous” access. Each access selection allows for adding users as “Page Editor”. The “Restricted” option additionally offers to add users with explicit read access.

Here you can rename the page’s name, title, add or remove content editors and select a custom layout. Renaming a page to a name already taken will rename the original page by adding the suffix “-old”. Caution: Homepage Personalization and Flyout Page will not be interfered by the renaming. Target of both will still be the “old” XCC page. By clicking on the copy icon, a new page with the addition “-copy” will be created. It has the same configurations as the original. 3.9.1 Creating New or Multiple Pages You can create a new page in the “Page Management” tab of the admin panel. Click on “Create new page” to open the dialog. You have to enter a valid name and title and choose the type. If there is already a page with the same name, a popup with an error will occur.

The file you download is a XML file, which contains all your XCC settings. If you want to export all your pages click the “Export all pages” button. 3.9.3 Set author rights and anonymous Access Also in the “Page Management” you can change the settings of XCC pages.

If you have a moderated Blog or another moderated community application, the Embedded Experience can post comments, but will not show comments, that are not approved. If you post a comment on a moderated community, it will display an information that the comment was sent to the moderator. If comments are forbidden for a blog or another community application, the Embedded Experience will not show a text area to comment. If the blog or the community application has no comments and it is not allowed to comment, there will be no comment area in the Embedded Experience. Since version 12 the Embedded Experience can be printed. Therefore you will find a small print icon on the right corner of the header, next to the close icon. If you want to customize the design of the printed content, you can upload a “print.css” file to the XCC Customization Files. You can close the Embedded Experience alternatively by a double right-click into the Embedded Experience, maybe you will know this feature from Lotus Notes, or simply click outside of the Embedded Experience.

Therefore you only need to implement the XCC-iWidget, as documented in the “XCC – Technical User Guide”, and add the XCC Widget to the Community, on the same way that you are adding other Applications, like the Bookmark or Files Widget in communities. You can simply remove the XCC page by clicking on “Delete Page” in the Page Settings tab in the Adminpanel.
