Introduction

This documentation describes all relevant aspects for users of FirstSpirit™ SiteArchitect.

Based on the user interface of FirstSpirit SiteArchitect and its screen view divided into three,

  • the elements of the tree structure (in the left-hand column of the screen) are described first,
  • followed by the editing screens for the individual objects and other functions in the center column,
  • and finally the functions in the right-hand column.

Important The graphics of the FirstSpirit start page, FirstSpirit ContentCreator, and FirstSpirit SiteArchitect are currently being revised, however functions and user guidance remain largely unchanged.
Adjustment of the documentation is carried out gradually. The presentation in this documentation may therefore no longer correspond to the current design.

Template development is not covered in this documentation; for detailed information on this topic see Overview (→FirstSpirit Online Documentation).
