Nice to have you back again

Download MusexPress CMS

Download MusexPress CMS and install it.

Please keep in mind that if you wanna use the new version, you need to update all of the MusexPress widgets in your Muse project (to the new version) to be sure that everything will work correctly on your site.

Move Pages 2.0 to Boxes

This new plugin replaces the Pages plugin for MusexPress. So, if you have the Pages plugin on your panel, you need to deactivate and delete it. To save your old works currently using this Plugin, you need to follow this documentation to move from the old Pages plugin to the new Boxes plugin. It’s very easy and requires no code skills.

 

Download Boxes

Go to MuseGain.com to download the Boxes Plugin. You’ll find a file called “MusexPress-Boxes-1.0.zip”. Unzip it to get 2 different folders: Widget and Plugin.

Install the Boxes Plugin

The first step is to install the Boxes plugin on the WordPress admin panel. From the Plugins menu click on the “add new” button. Select the “boxes-plugin.zip” file, click on the “install now” button and then activate the plugin. You can now see a new section in you admin menu, called “Boxes”.

Install the Boxes Widgets

Jump back to the “MusexPress-Boxes-1.0.zip” folder we have downloaded before and open the Widget folder. Double click on the mulib file and here we are in Adobe Muse. In the Library panel you can find a folder called “MusexPress – Boxes”.
Insert the Website URL
Select the Boxes widget from the library panel and drag and drop it into the canvas. Enter your website URL in the widget menu. If your website is in a subfolder, remember not to add a final / to the URL.

Create new Box

Jump back to your admin panel, click on the Boxes menu and then go to “add new”. From this page you can add the text content you want to be displayed into your Muse project. You can insert the box title that will help you or your customer to identify the text box for any editing. As a sample, we call it “box 1”. Now click on the “screen option” button in the top right corner and check the slug box if it’s not already checked. Enter the text in the text box and then click on “publish”. You can add a “slug” name. If you don’t insert anything, it will automatically be the same as the page title. Go back to the Muse project. Open the Boxes widget menu and enter the Box slug. You’ll see that the widget will display the contents that you inserted on the text box in the admin panel. You can style the text as you wish directly from the page content section and you can change font characteristics (type, color and size) from the Adobe Muse text menu. As they’re dynamic contents, you can’t preview the page in the browser untill you publish it.

Upload the Muse Template

Once your website design is finished, click on the File menu and then “upload to FTP hosting”. We insert our FTP credentials and continue. Now we have to insert the site URL. Pay attention to the “folder on server section”. That’s a very important step to have MusexPress working properly. You need to insert here the same WordPress installation path as completed before (either in root folder or in subfolder) and add  /mxp_theme. We’re ready to go to the next steps. In the Upload section select “All files” if you’re uploading MusexPress for the first time. Then you can choose “only modified files”. Click ok. You will see an FTP validation alert. Don’t worry about that. Click on Ignore and wait for the website upload.

Convert all Pages

Once the upload is completed, go to your WordPress admin panel.

Go to MusexPress menu and click in the pages converter. Select all the pages and click on the convert button.
