When your site is ready to go live, you'll want to take inventory of which feature tests you used, and reduce your Modernizr JS library to include only those tests that you need. This way it is as small as possible, downloading and executing more quickly than it would with unused feature detections present and firing.
The Modernizr module has you covered; it keeps track of all the tests being requested by other modules and themes — just visit
admin/config/development/modernizr. There are three sources: modules, themes, and tests within your current copy of modernizr.js.
This section is an introduction to site administration for new Drupal 8 users. It covers the use of the administrator account and offers suggestions on where to start.
Understanding the administrator account
At the end of the installation process, the person who performed the installation is automatically logged into the site with the administrator account. You may see the administrator account referred to as "User 1". This administrative account is automatically given all privileges for managing content and administering the site. The best practice is not to share this account. You can always grant users permissions by assigning them to certain roles.
Where to start
Administrators will generally need to address the following areas in a new site.

The Asset module proposes a new approach to the media management in Drupal, resolving a long-standing problem of reusable media files (images, videos, documents, etc) that evolved into the problem of reusable media content (images/videos/documents/etc with the attached content like description/licence/etc).
Cloud (a.k.a Clanavi) is a set of modules that lets users administer public and private clouds from within Drupal. Clanavi provide users the ability to manage public clouds such as AWS EC2 clouds as well as private clouds like OpenStack and XCP.
- Clanavi provides functionalites for cloud management, such as:
- starting/stopping instances
- managing volumes and snapshot
- firewall management with security groups
- SSH Key management
- Clanavi features a pluggable architecture and can be extended to support other
- Clanavi provides hooks for external modules to interact with instances when they
are stopped and started. See cloud.api.php for more details.
The following documentation pages describes Clanavi in more detail and walk users through installation and usage of Clanavi to manage Amazon EC2.
One of the most basic features of administering users is roles.
For example you may have a company web site where you can give users who are employees the role of "employee" and clients the role of "clients". You can also designate multiple roles to any one user.
You can create roles by going to People/Permissions/Roles.
Once the role is created, you can assign it to a user. Go to People and click the edit link next to the user you want to receive the new role. There are checkboxes under the heading "Roles" about half way down the page.
To configure this module just go to the module settings page (admin/config/administration/admin_menu/elements) to change which elements will be displayed and the order of them. You can choose all of them or none of them:
- home icon
- the menu items
- the users counter
- the username linking to the profile
- the username not linking
- the OG groups the user belongs to (requires OG module)
- the logout link
- Make sure that you have Administration Menu installed and working for your current logged in user.
- Put the module in your drupal modules directory (e.g. /sites/all/modules) and enable it in admin/modules.
- Configure the module at admin/config/administration/admin_menu/elements
