Your website is immediately available. The installation comes with two pages, 'Home' and 'About'. This is just an example to get you started, change everything as you like. You can make a website by adding more files and folders.
Writing web pages
Have a look inside your
content folder, here are all your web pages. Open the file
content/1-home/page.txt. You'll see settings and text of the page. You can change
Title and other settings at the top of a page. Here's an example:
--- Title: Home --- Your website works! [edit - You can edit this page] or use your text editor.
To create a new page, add a new file to the home folder or another
content folder. The navigation is automatically created from your
content folders. Here's another example:
--- Title: Demo --- [edit - You can edit this page]. The help gives you more information about how to create small web pages, blogs and wikis. [Learn more](https://developers.datenstrom.se/help/).
Now let's add an image:
--- Title: Demo --- [image picture.jpg Example rounded] [edit - You can edit this page]. The help gives you more information about how to create small web pages, blogs and wikis. [Learn more](https://developers.datenstrom.se/help/).
You can use Markdown to edit web pages.
