Logging In & CMS Overview

Logging In

To access your chapter website dashboard, first log in to www.MPI.org, then visit: https://www.mpi.org/Sitefinity.

If you are already logged in to your MPI account, you will be taken directly to your chapter’s dashboard when you visit 
 since it’s all the same system.

If you are  not  already logged in to your MPI account and go to  mpi.org/Sitefinity, you will see this login screen:

You may be able to log in here, but if not, click the  OpenIdConnect  button.

If you click the OpenIdConnect button, you will be taken to the MPI login screen where you can log in to your MPI account as you normally would:


This will give you an overview of all the main pages on the site. These are also referred to as “parent” pages or “top level” pages.

Use this section to create, edit, and delete pages.  


Content and functionality of Sitefinity CMS pages are defined through widgets. Anything you want a page to do is done via a widget.

There are two types of widgets:  Content widgets are used to display content created with the content modules, and Grid widgets create the structure to display the content.

Widgets allow you to display the content you create and configure how you want that content displayed. The Sitefinity CMS comes with a set of built-in widgets, which can be directly used in the pages you create.  We have also created many custom widgets for our specific needs at MPI.

Content Items

After you create the layout of your page, you can start populating the page with content. Sitefinity CMS content is easy to create and reuse. Once you create news, an event, or other content item, it is stored in the Sitefinity CMS project and other users can view, use, and edit that content.

You can also upload images and other files that you store in libraries. Content, created with the modules, is displayed on pages with the help of widgets. Sitefinity CMS has built-in modules for creating various types of contents, such as news, events, and blogs. Each type of content has a dedicated widget used to display it.
