Content Management System
Website builder software and Content Management System. These two definitions can be often confused. Is it true that also overlap each other: a CMS can be a website builder software and a website builder software can be used to manage the contents of a website.
Our CMS is not a website builder software. As for this particularities can be used on existing websites. Yes you can use it with existing website also if they don't have a database or a complex system. We can apply this CMS to your HTML website as well.
Our content management system is based on a simple principle: creating some editable area in the web page without changing the structure of the website.
This will extremely simplify the system resulting in a very easy way to use.
Of course there will be some limitation compare to full CMS but usually most of the features are never used.
It will be anyway possible to increase the amount of features on request.
No, no price change on improving the possibility of use our content management system. We keep this step by step approach to serve an easy product to the user that will not be distract from useless complicated functions not related to him.

How to use the content management system
This webpage will help you edit your website using the Content Management System. A content management system, or CMS (pronounced C-M-S), is any software that gives you the ability to update content on your website.
Note that this is a limited guide, for a full guide you can download the full CMS guide of our system.
Let's start using the CMS
To access the CMS, you will need a web browser and an Internet connection.

orTo login, use your email address and the specific password for the CMS. You may have already received your password. If not, contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
Resetting Your Password
If you forget your password, you can reset it by selecting the round question mark link from the login page:
The Reset Password page will appear:
Enter your email address and further instructions will be sent to you. If you don’t receive an email after a few minutes, please check your junk or spam folder.
The first page you will see when you login will be the Sites page. Since the CMS is capable of managing multiple websites, your list will contain all of the sites you have access to. At any time, you can select the Sites tab to come back to this list.
To edit a site, select it from the list. This will take you to the Pages page, where a list of pages you can edit will be shown.
To edit a page, select its label from the list.
The sidebar on the left may have different options depending on your site setup. If you don’t see an option mentioned here, it has not been enabled for your site.
Once you’ve selected a page to edit, you will be taken to the Live Editor. The Live Editor is a special version of your page that lets you edit content and shows how changes will look like once they’re published. By design, you will not be able to follow links or navigate away from the page while editing your site in the Live Editor. To change page click the Site button and > choose the new page (see the second image).
To change the page:
Editable Regions are sections of the page that have been enabled for editing by your designer. They are indicated by dashed outlines that appear when you mouse hover over them.
To edit a region, simply place your cursor anywhere inside an editable region. Depending on the region, various features will be made available in the Live Editor’s toolbar.
Description of the t Live Editor’s toolbar
The Paragraph menu lets you format entire blocks of text into headings, paragraphs, block quotes, or pre-formatted text.
To create a heading, place your cursor inside an Editable Region and select . The Paragraph menu will appear. Select the desired heading level and the block your cursor is in will turn into a heading. You can also format a paragraph as a block quote or as pre-formatted text.
To remove a block format, place your cursor in the desired block and select Paragraph from the Paragraph menu.
To apply the text formatting such as bold, italic, and underline to text, highlight the desired text and select . The Text Formatting menu will appear. Select the desired format and it will be applied to the highlighted text.
To remove a format, select it again from the Text Formatting menu. To remove all formatting, select Remove Formatting.
If your CMS has enabled Font Styles, you can use this option to change the font, size, color, and background color of text.
Similarly, you can use Custom Styles to select from a list of predefined styles (only if the webmaster did prepare for you).
Note: On websites, underlining text is typically reserved for hyperlinks and may be considered bad usability. When you need to emphasize text, consider using bold or italic instead.
To insert a link to another page or file, highlight the desired text and select the Link button. This will bring up the Link dialog box.
Enter a URL or browse for a file on your server. If you’d like the link to open in a new window, check the Open in a new window box. When you’re finished, select Submit to create the link.
To edit an existing link, place your cursor on it and select Insert > Link.
To insert an image, place your cursor inside an Editable Region and select the Image button. This will bring up the Image dialog box.
Enter a URL or browse for a file on your server. After a URL has been entered, a preview of your image will appear on the right side of the dialog.
Providing a Description is recommended, as this will aide users who have images disabled, users with text-based browsers, and users with disabilities that prevent them from seeing images.
Once you’ve entered a URL and a description, select Submit to insert the image into your page. To edit an existing image, place your cursor on it and select the Image button or double-click on it. If desired, you can crop an image by dragging a selection over the preview in the Image dialog. When an image is cropped, the original file is left intact and a new one is created.
By default, images will be physically resized when a smaller width or height is entered. This optimizes them so they load faster, but the option can be disabled by unchecking the Resize image for smaller file size box.
To embed content from a third-party provider such as YouTube, Vimeo, Twitter, Google Maps, etc., place your cursor inside an Editable Region and select the Embed button. This will bring up the Embed dialog box.
Paste the embed code into the box and select Submit. The media will be embedded into the editor.
To edit an embedded object, place your cursor on it and select the Embed button again, or simply double-click on the object.
Anchors let you deep-link into a specific section of your page. To create an anchor, place your cursor in front of the heading you want to link to, go to , and select Anchor. This will bring up the Anchor dialog.
Enter a name for your anchor. Since anchors must follow a special naming convention, the CMS will automatically convert the value you enter into a compatible name (all small caps, all attached or with hyphens: - , no special characters).
Anchors are normally not visible on webpages, so once an anchor has been inserted into your page it will appear as a symbol. This allows you to identify and edit anchors, but the symbol will not appear on the live site. To edit an existing anchor, place your cursor on it and select Insert > Anchor or double-click on it.
To insert a table into your page, place your cursor inside an Editable Region, go to and select Insert Table. This will bring up the Insert Table dialog.
Please note: we strongly discourage the use of tables. Tables are not so responsive friendly and in some case are considered deprecated. Please consult with us: email@example.com
Anyway... Enter the number of columns and rows for your new table.
If you want your table to have a header that spans across the first row of your table, check the Header on top box. If you want your table to have a header that spans across the first column of your table, check the Header on left box. To add a caption to your table, check the Caption box.
Once you’ve configured the table options, select Insert Table to insert the table into your page.
You can edit existing tables using the Table menu. To open it, go again to and select the appropriate option. You can add and remove rows and columns, merge and split cells, or delete the table entirely.
Your website may be configured with Repeatable Regions on one or more of your pages. These are block to be quickly reproduced keeping intact the structure. They allow you to add, remove, and reorder blocks of content.
Repeatable Regions are indicated by a thin, dashed border.
When your cursor is inside a Repeatable Region, the following button will become available in the Live Editor’s toolbar. Selecting this button will bring up the Repeatable Regions menu which has options to add, remove, and reorder blocks of content.
