But, at any time, power users can also manually switch a page back to the Classic version by editing the page's URL in the browser location bar. This is a temporary switch, and later pages will load using your default settings.

To edit an open page in the Classic version, change cf# to editor.html.

e.g. – https://ubcms.buffalo.edu/editor.html/content...
becomes https://ubcms.buffalo.edu/cf#/content...

To reach the Classic version's Websites Admin Console, change sites.html/ to siteadmin#/.

e.g. – https://ubcms-author.buffalo.edu/sites.html/content/...
becomes https://ubcms-author.buffalo.edu/siteadmin#/content/...
