While installing Smallsite Design produces a working but bare site, there are some settings that you will probably want to change.
The default user ID created when installing is sd. You may want to change that to your initials or a short nickname.
Each locale is assigned a language for the user interface (UI) elements, like buttons and menus, which will be derived from the locale ID if it matches one of the supplied UI languages, and cannot be changed. Otherwise it is set to English, which can be changed at step 2 to a language that most of your intended audience would be likely to prefer.
This procedure is intended to be performed by: Master manager.
To set up Smallsite Design to your liking:
1Change user id
1-2Change the first manager's ID
by clicking their ID ✎ checkbox, editing the now exposed field, then clicking the Submit button.
The ID is changed, and will have to be used for any future logins.
2Set master user interface language, if allowed
2-2Select the language
by clicking on the button for the suitable User language.
The selected language will be used immediately for all Smallsite Design buttons and text in all pages when viewed in the master locale.
3Customise site settings
- a.Editing the Site ID, Site name and Copyright owner in the Values section.
