Can't figure out how to edit home page.

Post by mto213 » Thu Oct 11, 2018 7:33 pm

Hi, I am having trouble figuring out how to edit the homepage of slife.org. I want to be able to edit the six image links on the right of the page and also the 4 image links at the bottom of the page since most of them give 404 errors. I am not sure what type of item these image links are classified as. I couldn't find them under modules or menus. Is there a way I can edit these items?

Enable Preview Module Positions in Template Manager.

slife.org?tp=1 will show where the positions are.

If you log on the front-end with a user that has editing access - full edit priviledges (e.g. publisher, administrator, super user etc), the modules and content should show "edit" buttons,so you can do the editing from the front-end. This would be one way around the issue.

By the way my Mcafee web advisor alerts me to this being a dangerous/risky website, so I can't view it.

https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/slife.org says that it is blacklisted and site is 2.5.6.
Suggest you treat as hacked viewtopic.php?f=714&t=946026 and viewtopic.php?f=710&t=956702

I used slife.org?tp=1 and it shows the display of the modules, but I still cannot edit them. Also, I logged in as an admin via the /administrator url but I still can't edit these modules. Is there another way I can log in to edit these?
