First Steps

mangreenNow, I know you’re all excited about exploring what this tool can do (and how you can change the colors and all) but there are some basic things you need to do. Once you’ve logged in as the Site Admin:

  1. Change the name of the site (Settings –> General)
  2. Update your profile information (Users –> Your Profile)
  3. Add information about yourself. You can either add a page or a text widget to your page.

That’s it – your site’s ready to go!
