In the root directory are 2 config files  catalog_before.cfg and
catalog_after.cgf  this is where the @_Header_@ variable is  pulling the
directives from

However, what I've done is under quicklinks, which is easier to edit, this is
where I made accessing other admin pages that I've created. Those pages that I've
created are under the admin directory of each catalog.

Quicklinks hyperlink is in the lower left side of the admin
