Here, we'll look at a brief overview of SiteWrench and then tackle some introductory tasks to help you get started managing your website.
First, check out this introductory video.
Login to SiteWrench
To login to SiteWrench, we first start with your website's URL, then type /admin at the end of it.
Enter in your email and password, then select Login.
Create a Page and add basic content
You actually have two options to create a Page in SiteWrench. Both options begin inside the Pages system in SiteWrench. Go ahead and select the Pages icon in the left menu.
Select the + Page button to the right of the Pages icon you just selected from the left menu. This will bring up the Add a Page modal, where you can name your new page. When you're done, select Add and Edit to begin adding content to your page.
If you hover over the names of any existing pages along the left side, you'll see two icons appear. Select the + icon to add a new page. This will bring up the Add a Page modal, where you can name your new page. When you add a new page this way, SiteWrench selects the parent page by default based on where you chose to add the page from, however, it can be changed. When you're done, select Add and Edit to begin adding content to your page.
Now, we're looking at the WYSIWYG Editor. By default, SiteWrench populates the Custom Content area with sample text. You can delete all of that sample text and start adding your own content in this editor.
Reorder your page navigation
Select a page you want to reorder from the pages list on the left. Now it's as simple as a click and drag to where you want it!
While dragging a page, you might notice you have two options on where you can place it. Over another page will make it a sub-level page, and in between two existing pages will simply place it between those pages in the navigation.
Installing Page Parts
Think of Page Parts as apps you can install on your pages. Select the Install Page Part button on the top right side of your window. Now, from this window we can see all of the available Page Parts we can use on our page.
Adding an image to a page
Easily add an image to your page by clicking and dragging the image into the Custom Content area.
In doing this, SiteWrench adds the image directly to your page and simultaneously to the Files system.
**Note: We highly recommend re-naming your image or file prior to dropping it directly into the Custom Content area. This will assist you in keeping an organized Files system.
Add new Admins to edit SiteWrench
Sometimes it takes a village.
Select the Settings icon from the left menu. If SiteWrench hasn't already defaulted to the Users tab, select it in the top center of the window.
Select Add New. From this window, we can enter in a name, email address, and password for a new user.
At the bottom of this window, we can set the permissions of this user. Checking the Administration Level User box will give the user access to everything on SiteWrench. We can give the user more specific permissions by leaving that box unchecked, and checking individual boxes for certain areas.
