Mission 9: Site Creditentials

Briefing

One of the ways to gain recognition as a web designer is to add your credentials to the projects you put online. SiteManager has many design footer elements where you are able to add these credentials.

In this mission, we are going to edit the credentials in your account and change them for this tutorial website.

(example of credentials at the bottom of the page)

Step 1: Update Account

Login to your dashboard and go to My Account.

1 dashboard login

Scroll to the bottom of the page and change the Credits URL to your homepage and Credits Text to your business. (ex: Created by The Agency).

Click save.

3 save credits

Whenever you create a new project the credits url and text will be set to the values from your account.

Step 2: Update Site Credentials

For every individual project you can update the default site credentials. This comes in handy when you changed your business or when you are collaborating with other professionals.

Go to the settings page of the tutorial project.

5 settings

At the bottom of the screen you will see that the Credits URL and Text need to be updated. Remember, since we changed the default settings in our account, only new projects will have the updated credentials.

(1) Change the credits url

(2) Change the credits text

(3) Click save

Thank you for completing the 9 SiteManager missions! These missions were focused on giving you a basic feel of how the Design and CMS application work together. Separating content, design and development in integrated applications is what makes SiteManager unique. The design work doesn't get compromised by the webmaster. It enables core content features like multiple languages. All code can be changed or new elements can be created with the Developer.

We only touched the Developer app in the third mission, but we are planning a new series of tutorials for this application. In the meanwhile you can watch our Developer videos on youtube.
