Smile Front-end

Hello all!
I have a small question.

I dont really fully understand the meaning of the term- "front end".

Here is a quote from page 442 regarding that:

"With the theme removed, it’s easier to
focus on the functionality of the Management section, rather than be distracted by layout issues. In
Chapter 15 you create a third theme specifically for the Management folder and apply that theme in the
web.config file in the Management folder. That way, your management pages will have a look and feel
that’s different from the pages in the front end."

10x PPL...

In the context of the sentence provided, I believe that front end means that non-management related pages. Ex. Homepage, photo gallery, etc... These are the pages that your normal users are able to see.

The management pages on the other hand will only be visible by a certain number of authorized users.

Yes, that's correct. I typically use the term frontend to refer to all public-facing pages, and use backend for all pages / functionality used by administrators / managers of the site to manage its content and structure.
