Getting Started with Interspire Website Publisher

Step 1. Create a category

Articles are placed into categories to sort them into related topics. Categories thus assist in organising the content on your website. As all articles are required to be placed into a category, the first step is to create one.


To create a category, click the "Create a Catgory" option under the "Categories" tab.

When creating your category, the only required field is the name. If you've just installed the software then there will be a sample category called "Sample Category". You can choose to edit this category by clicking 'View Categories' instead of creating a new category.

Step 2. Create your web pages

Web pages allow you to publish content on your web site. Web pages can include text, links and images, and will appear along the top of your website in the navigation menu.


To create a web page, click the "Create a Web Page" option under the "Web Pages" tab.


Step 3. Create your articles

Articles also allow you to publish content on your web site, but are more advanced than pages. Articles can include multiple pages, and readers can also leave comments on articles. Articles are flexible and can be used in a variety of ways.


To create an article, click the "Create an Article" option under the "Articles" tab.

A basic article will contain a title, category, summary, and body content. There are also more advanced options available, which you will see when creating an article.

Step 4. Create a blog post

As well as pages and articles, you can also publish blog posts directly to your site. A blog is an online journal that's published to your web site. Visitors can comment on your blog and you can also publish a podcast, which allows you to upload an audio file that visitors can listen to.


To create a blog post, click the "Create a Blog Post" option under the "Blogs" tab.
