The Elxis development team paid special attention to the creation of a user-friendly administration environment. Based on the experience we acquired over the years, and having a thorough knowledge of the daily habits and needs of an Elxis website administrator, we focused on the acceleration and accommodation of the main administration tasks. On the other hand, for the advanced Elxis users and connoisseurs, the 2008 version is enriched with additional features that forge Elxis to be one mighty CMS.

Multilingual administrationElxis Administration is FULLY multilingual. It also supports Right-To-Left written languages (RTL), like Arabic or Hebrew. Your web site can be administered by users of various ethnicities and make everyone feel "right at home". In Addition the help system of Elxis has been changed, and is now multilingual in the 2008 version. In every administration page, there is available help in your language for the current task. The 100 files of the Elxis help system consist a compact users manual.

In order to help those webmasters that keep web sites, in more than one languages, Elxis is equipped with a content items automatic translation system. In the 2008 version of Elxis, this system was expanded to the autonomous pages, and there is no more need for your web site to be published on the internet in order for the system to work (the system works locally, as long as there is an internet connection available).

In the administration control page, you are able to add shortcuts towards any internal or external page you desire. These shortcuts can be strictly personal or available to all those who log in the administration area. In the same page, you can also view the logged in users, their IP address, and the time interval between their last action on this page. You can additional view the IP adresses of the visitors!

If you wish to log out, Elxis will provide you with a confirmation window, which will display you the total time that you have been logged-in. A converse function will take place during the addition or modification of an article. Writing an article may be a time-consuming process and may outlive the session time span. In order to avoid losing any data, Elxis shows the remaining time until the session expiration, during your articles creation. In the last 30 seconds, the indication turns red, in order to warn you.

An everyday administrational need is to publish and unpublish various items. In the 2008 version, the relevant icons have advanced using the AJAX technology. Another everyday need is the browsing through sections lists, categories, content items and others. Elxis provides you with an extended view, full of info, for every row. Sometimes, though, that isnt necessary when it comes to focusing on specific information. This is why we added a choice for changing the view type, from Extended to Simplified. Your choice is saved to a Cookie, and there is no need for you to keep changing it every time you visit the page.

Elxis 2008 has a brand new media manager, which is quite easy to use, and quite powerful on the whole. You wish to change the size of an image? Copy it to another file? Add a watermark (text or image) to it? No problem. The media manager supports all these actions. Perhaps you want to listen to an mp3, or watch an flv video? These are also supported. What else can be supported, you may ask? You can choose to view thumbnails of images (automatic thumbnail creation) or their type, change the permisions of files and folders, download whole directories and their contents in zip files, upload zip files and extract them, create and delete directories. You can also view an image preview in its original size and rename any file you wish.

Media Manager is based entirely on AJAX technology. The manager environment is quite similar to your desktop environment. By left-clicking, you can select a folder or a directory. By right-clicking, the folders options appear (rename, delete, copy, play, e.t.c.). By double-clicking, you open the directory. The selected object in highlighted with a different color, and an indication informs you on the actions available for the selected object.

  Ten Years of ECHR : 1998 - 2008 show need of Revival in 2009-2010 coinciding with 2009 EU Election

A threefold, coordinated move by new Top French Political actors in the 2009 EU Parliament Elections, expressed in Strasbourg a will to boost Europe's Political dimension close to Citizens' concerns, going from protection of Economy to defence of Human Rights.    

The move met an exceptional ECHR's call for a "revival" of Human Rights' protection mechanism', in a Mega-Conference, early 2010.   

Obviously focusing on June 2009 Elections to EU Parliament, it involved from the outset the recently nominated "dual" Head of French Governing Party (UMP)  Michel BARNIER and Rachida DATI :


     - "As President Sarkozy has clearly said, we (France) are in favor of a Strong, Sovereign and Independent, Political Europe, which protects its Citizens, and not for a large Super-Market, nor for a Europe under influence",

    "This goes for everything, including Energy", added to "EuroFora" the experienced former EU Commissioner, Minister of Foreign affairs, currently of Agriculture and Sarkozy's new pick as Leader of the Governing party UMP to EU 2009 Election, Michel BARNIER                                              .                             

  - Human Rights are important because they are at the Heart of the Political Europe that we aspire for : I.e. a Europe able to act and protect its Citizens, stressed also the New French Minister for European affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE, while meeting Strasbourg's Journalists at his first visit to the CoE.   


This is one of the main interests for CoE, which is also a natural place for cooperation between EU countries and Russia or Turkey, which was recently helpful at the Middle East crisis, he added.

The move gained momentum with French Minister of Justice, Rachida Dati's main observations at ECHR's 5Oth Anniversary :   

- "While we are seeking Europe's Borders and Identity, you (ECHR) remind us also of its Values", Human Rights, Dati noted.   

Citizens seek more and more often ECHR's help, and the tempo accelerates, Europa awaits a symbol, while national legal orders are not freezed   

And she expressed "support" to ECHR President Jean-Paul Costa's call to satisfy the vital need to revigorate the PanEuropean Court by deciding big changes at a High-Level Conference open to a large audience, a kind of "Etats Generaux" of Human Rights, at the beginning of 2010.       


It's not so much the recently growing number of applications for Russia or Ukraine etc, which seems to be Costa's main concern : In fact, the cases declared "admissible" are much fewer...    

But rather the persistent violations of Human Rights, sometimes very grave (ie. murders, torture, abritrary deprivation of liberty, oppression of freedom of speech, destructions of homes/properties, etc), despite numerous, repeated condemnations by ECHR. So that CoE's Ministers, due to "supervise execution" of ECHR's judgements, are overloaded.   

F.ex. most Media noted that Turkey still remains, even in 2008, the 1st among 47 CoE member States in the number of condemnations by ECHR :  257, compared to 233 for Russia, with a population more than the double..    

The problem is that it's not the 1st time at all : During all the last Decade 1998-2008, Turkey was condemned by ECHR much more than any other State, and for particularly grave violations :   

- 1.652 condemnations, compared to 605 for Russia, 548 for Poland, 494 for France, 476 for Ukraine, etc.   

Italy's second place with 1.394 condemnations is a misleading false appearance : In fact, most of them (999) concern mere "procedural delays" in national courts. Same for France.   

On the contrary, Turkey was condemned 180 times for Killings, 192 times for Torture or Inhuman/Degrading treatments, 340 times for arbitrary deprivation of Liberty, 528 times for "Unfair trial", and 169 times for oppression of Freedom of speech, (etc). And the latest, 2008 numbers, indicate no change in this trend, (See supra).   

The current Spanish CoE Presidency (November 2008 - May 2009) has made of the implementation of ECHR's judgements its 1st Priority.   

ECHR's President, Jean-Paul Costa, stressed in its 2009 Annual Press Conference, CoE Member States' obligation to implement the judgements, according to Article 46 of the European Convention on Human Rights.   

Moreover, if CoE's Committee of Ministers delays to ensure implementation, then, the repetition of violations in similar cases provokes a multiplication of complaints tabled to the Court, which overload the mecanism for the protection of Human Rights, denounced Costa.          

A series of Debates on "the situation of Human Rights in Europe", focusing on the "need to fight against Impunity" of perpetrators of grave crimes, is  currently prepared by CoE's Parliamentary Assembly for the session of June 2009.  

The final Timing comes shortly AFTER the EU Elections, but the main Reports should have been adopted before.

Meanwhile, French President Sarkozy and German Chancelor Merkel's recent call "for a Political Europe" in 2009 EU Elections (See earlier "correspondence from Paris, Elysee Palace), seems more and more endorsed also by other EU Countries' Top MEPs :

Thus, f.ex., EU Parliament's 1st vice-President, Greek MEP Mrs Rodi KRATSA, speaking to "EuroFora", agreed that 2009 EU Election would be a "naturally good" opportunity to debate what really interests EU Citizens : "The Future of a Political Europe, able to face the Economic Crisis, with a Culture and identity which attracts the People"

(Photo taken earlier during Sarkozy's 1st visit at EU Parliament, in 2007 : Sarkozy and Merkel's Ideas for a Political Europe inspire also other EU politicians accross the continent)..


2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
