CMS Guide and Tips




 

When your CMS development has been completed you can safely and easily start adding content to your website.


Your Domain Name: If you have not pointed your domain name to Bluby Hosting yet then you will use a Temp Website address until we get you moved over.  Example: http://74.63.89.77/~username

 

When you sign up for Bluby Hosting the first 8 characters is usually your username.

Example:  if my domain name is JoesCrabShack.com then my username would be:  /~joescrab

 

Once we point your domain name to Bluby Hosting then your Website address will be your domain name:  http://domainname.com


Accessing the CMS Admin: To access your CMS Admin simply put  /admin in front of your domain name.  

Example: http://74.63.89.77/~username/admin or http://domainname.com/admin

 

Use the following username and password:  Username:  admin Password:  admin



Page Editor:
once you log in you will see the CMS has different sections.   Using Page Editor you can select your different pages to edit from the drop down menu.

- sidebar is to edit the small section on your site labled "sidebar"
- contact_top is to add text to the Contact page, above the Form.  Like an address or additional contact info.

Modules: modules is where you manage files like photos, music and store products.   Some modules are enabled and some are disabled depending on the project scope you have with Bluby Designs.

Newsletter: for those that asked for the Newsletter feature the CMS integrates with www.mailchimp.com   Sign up for a free acount and paste in the embed code from Mail Chimp.
