The Configure section of the Mako Content Management System (CMS) contains tools for configuring a selected Mako device.  If you only have one Mako device, then that Mako will be selected automatically. Otherwise, you must first select which Mako device you would like to configure.

You can select a Mako device by the following methods:

  • Visit the Sites section using the left navigation menu.  See the Sites documentation for details.
  • Visit the Mako Devices section using the left navigation menu.  See the Mako Devices documentation for details.
  • Use the Site Summary, History, or Search panel in the header. See the Home documentation for details.
