Step 1. Create a Project

Creating a Project is where it all begins.

A Project is the place where all your online documentation is stored while you are authoring it, and the most part of work is done. There are several ways to create a Project. For example, you can import it from a  CHM file. Here, we will take a closer look at the process of creating a Project from a Template .

  • After your brand new Documentation Portal is ready, navigate to the portal link and log in.
  • The Home page of the Portal will open. It will look something like the one on the screenshot below. To create a new Project, click Go to Portal Dashboard:

  • The following page will open and you’ll see your portal dashboard. Click Create your first project:

  • The Create Project Wizard will open. Click Next to move further with your Project creation. 

  • At step 2, you are to choose a name for your Project, its URLand a Template you like. As you see, there's a number of Templates to choose from. When you click any Template's image on the left, its preview will be displayed on the right. Let's name our Project 'Magic Wand Manual'. The URL will be generated automatically, let's leave it as it is. And, let's pick the Stardust Template. Click Next.

  • By clicking Next, you'll trigger the creation process. When the creation is completed, the wizard will switch to step 4. It will provide you with links to the created Project and its style files.

  • Click Finish. You'll see the following page that contains your first project.
