Step 2 - Customise your websites appearance

The set up wizard will provide you a number of general website categories.

Pick a website category that best suits the purpose of your website, which will pre-load some basic content and structure as a starting point that you can edit.

Step 3 - Enter your own content

Using the tabs at the top of the page, you can add widgets, change your page theme and layout and add new pages.

You can edit text boxes by clicking inside the box, this opens the editing tools at the top of the screen – the toolbar has been designed similarly to Microsoft Office Word so you don't need any technical knowledge of websites to use it. It's really really easy!

You can edit images by clicking the edit button in the top left hand corner of the image boxes, it will bring up this window, which allows you to upload new images, add images from a gallery of popular images and change or customise the way images are displayed.

Step 4 - Make your website live online

Publishing your website so it's visible on the Internet couldn't be easier.

Once you've created it and made it just the way you like - click the 'Publish' button in the top right hand corner. It's that simple. Before you publish it, we recommend saving it by clicking the 'Save' button and previewing it using the 'Preview' button.

Once you click the 'Publish' button, your website will take a few minutes to go live and this screen will appear:

Publish your website

You can also publish Facebook and Mobile-friendly versions. These can be configured by using the 'Publishing' tab under 'Site' in the toolbox.

Important Note: Every time you create a new page or edit a page, you will need to publish the site again for those changes to be made live on the Internet. Hitting 'Save' will save the information for later, including publishing later on, but it doesn't actually update it on the Internet.
