Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use themes?

Can I start from scratch?
Yes. When you start a new project in SiteManager you get offered a choice: the convenience to start from a theme, or the freedom to start from scratch. The ultimate designer freedom!
Can I build my own themes?

Can I build my own components?
Can end-clients edit websites?
Of course! In the SiteManager dashboard you can add users to your projects and set permissions. This way you can give clients access to the visual CMS to edit the website. Because of the separation between content and design, a curious client can't break your website's design.
