Ben's Cms - Changing Default View To 'preview Page'


Recommended Posts

Hey all, 

I'm still playing around with Ben's CMS system, changing a few things here & there, to taste.

I'm wondering what exactly I need to do to change the default view of the editable fields to 'preview', rather than 'edit'.
