LogandCMS aims to make maintenance of web sites and online shops as easy as possible. It is not a web design tool however. Once you have graphics & markup design of your web site at hand, you can enter it into LogandCMS in a structured way so that any repeated patterns are captured in templates, snippets and the site structure. Such decomposition makes future maintenance fast and easy.
Your web site has a few basic properties which you can configure in the Site menu under the Site tab.
Name is assigned to you by LogandCMS.
You can change the Public URL field to whatever URL your web site is going to be deployed. It is the URL you are redirected to when you click on the View link.
Preview URL is fixed by LogandCMS. It is the URL you are redirected to when you click on the Preview link. It is for testing your changes and it is not intended to be accessible by general public.
Server Side Markup
You can see the deployed web site if you follow the View link.
If you do not use shopping cart, you can host your web site anywhere else. Your web site is simply a collection of static files that you can copy to your chosen web server.
To deploy your web site to another web server which supports FTP, configure the FTP parameters Username, Password, Host (name of your web server) and Directory (where your files will be copied to).
Note that all files in the specified Directory will be deleted first and then the web site generated by LogandCMS will copied over. Also, this operation can take a while depending on the amount of data being copied.
