Creating a CMS SiteLast Updated: 12/03/2015 Introduced in Verision: 2.0
A content management system (CMS) allows you to store, view, create and edit data all through a “centralized” virtual location. It also helps to customize the delivery of data for individual users, so as to display content in different languages, etc. This is particularly useful for large projects that include multiple parties in different geographical locations, or even for the creation of a website that needs to service customers around the globe.
- In the Folders tree, select a root folder.
- Click the “Add” button at the top of the workspace and select “CMS Site” from the list.
- Name the site and select a template from the drop-down menu. In the video, we choose the default template. Click “Save” to continue.
- Click the name of the new object you just created to see the CMS site details. Click the “CMS Edit Page” link at the top of the screen to edit the site.
- Click the “Show Raw HTML” link at the bottom of the screen. You will be shown the HTML code for the site in its current state.
- Enter code into this area to construct the site. You may also use the “Upload HTML” link at the bottom of the screen to upload a document containing HTML code.
- The “Show Raw HTML” link will have changed to the “Show HTML Editor” link. Click this link to edit any text or images directly. The raw HTML code will update itself based on your changes.
- Click “Save” in the upper-right corner of the workspace when finished.
- Click the “View Page” button at the top of the workspace to view the page as it will be seen online.
