Website Builder Quick Start

The two-minute guide to getting started

Three important buttons

  1. Main menu - Switch to another application like a blog or store

  2. Add content - Add new images, text, or other content to your page

  3. Publish - Make your website visible on the web

Add content

To add content to your page:

  1. Click Add content

  2. Drag any item from the content panel onto the page

  3. Drop the content on the page

Page layout

  1. Click and drag the item you want to add. Drop zones are indicated in green as you drag the item around the page. You can create up to 4 columns on the page

Move content around the page

  1. Use the drag handle to move the content. The drop zone for the content is indicated by the green bar

Drag and drop

You can only drag and drop content in the page body, not in the page header or footer.

Publishing your site

The first time you publish your site, you may be prompted to choose a temporary subdomain name.

When you publish your site, it becomes visible on the World Wide Web (WWW). If you change your site, you will need to click Publish again to make new changes visible.

Blog posts are published automatically: you do not need to click the publish button to make a new post live.
