Creating and Viewing Your Site

Welcome to the Carrot team! Launching your site will be the very first thing you do after you sign up for a Carrot account. As you go through the site-creation process, you’ll be prompted to pick a lead type and a design! The lead type will determine your site’s default target audience and the design will be your first step towards personalizing your site.

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Add/Create your site

*If this is your first site your screen will look a bit different from this. That’s ok! The steps will be the same after you get started!

Step 2: Select your site type

Step 3: Name your site and click the orange “Create Site” button

Your site name will appear as your default logo in the header of your site until you attach a logo. You can change the site title any time in the site’s settings.

Nice work! Your site is now created, and you can start making edits to it!


View Your Site

Once your site is launched, you can preview it at any time to see what your visitors are seeing.

Log in to your account

You will learn how to view your site and pages using three methods. One way is to view it from your account’s dashboard. You can also view it by clicking the domain name, once it’s attached. And, lastly, you can view individual pages from within the content dashboard.

View Your Site From Your Dashboard

Once logged in, you’ll go to your sites dashboard to view your site, if you haven’t attached a domain.
