Setting up a site in Story Engine is extremely easy. Let us guide you through the process!
1. First, you need to set up a Client in your Story Engine account.
2. The next step is to inform us which client in Story Engine the site will be connected to, and we will set up the site. To be able to do this we need the following information:
a) the name of the site
b) the name of the agency and client the site will be connected to
c) which account users will need to have access to the site
3. Connect the correct URL to your site
4. Customize your site under settings.
When you change your settings, please make sure that you save and upload your changes. You are always able to access your site directly via “Visit site”.
