Folder: include/inc_ext/be_special/ *

Have a look into the files “include/inc_ext/be_special/startupX(_YY).php” and you will understand the functional.

The vars for e.g. ”$BL['be_custom_link01_1_title']” you will find in “include/inc_ext/be_special/lang/backend/(YY)/”.

Play around a little bit. If there is a section in “startupX(_YY).php” you don´t need, please kill the entries.

Some link examples:

Open a folder with the ID=13: (You can´t open a folder if the parent folder is closed).

<a href="phpwcms.php?do=articles&open=13:1">

Open the article with the ID=15:

<a href="phpwcms.php?do=articles&p=2&s=1&id=15">

Edit the article with the ID=15:

<a href="phpwcms.php?do=articles&p=2&s=1&aktion=1&id=15">

Edit the contentpart with the ID=22 in category ID=14:

<a href="phpwcms.php?do=articles&p=2&s=1&aktion=2&id=14&acid=22">
