Integrating a website in 5 minutes

Step 1: Add css markup

Only certain parts of each page will be editable, while others will not. For example: A text block in the middle of the page might be editable, whereas the top navigation might not. In order to isolate these areas, we apply a CSS class to elements we want to make editable. DIV, IMG, A tags can all have an editable class.

The default CSS class is .cms-editable, but you can change this using the PageLime administration panel.

Step 2: Register for PageLime

To create an account on PageLime, all you have to do is provide basic account info (name, email, password), and then provide site details such as the URL and FTP information.

PageLime comes with three flavors of integration: FTP, FTP-XML, and Web Services (read more about them here). The basic, and simplest to use, is the FTP integration method.

Once registered, you can log-in to the PageLime CMS.

Step 3: Edit the site

Once logged-in to the PageLime CMS, you can modify the parts of your site marked up as editable in Step 1, and publish pages.

When you publish a page, PageLime uploads your changes via FTP (or another integration method) to your site.

PageLime allows you to add and edit images and documents on your site, as well as create an RSS feed of the edits you are making to your site. You can find a detailed list of features in the features section
