Creation of a site is the first step to start using the app.

Site creation

Creating a new site requires you to choose a name, URL and theme (the Help Center theme is currently pre-selected). These settings can be changed after site creation.

Click create to start managing your site from the single site overview screen.

Your site will remain offline until click update site and go live with your generated preview.

To go live, your site needs at least one content source. A content source is a Confluence space and can only be part of one site. Learn how to add content sources to your site.

You can always check which content in Confluence is part of a Viewport site and access a content preview from the Confluence page content byline.

From Settings, you can go back to change the site name or URL and configure a custom domain for your site.

From Edit theme you can open the Theme editor and start styling and customising your site.

Site structure

A site's structure depends mainly on the number of content sources selected. Sites that feature only one content source follow this structure:

The site home is reachable under the URL you chose and functions as a landing page for your site. It is used to navigate to the individual content pages.

Sites that feature multiple independent content sources have an additional hierarchy level:

In this case, the site home, which remains under the URL you chose, is used to navigate to the individual content source home pages, which in turn navigate the user to the individual content pages. The site home is using the portal page template which you can configure in the theme editor.

Example Structure

If you have added four content sources to your site, you will have four different content source pages. These are available under their respective content source names (e.g yoursite.scrollhelp.site/content-source-1). You can change the URL segment for the content source from the Content Source table in your single site overview.

If you have added only one content source to your site, that content source page will be the landing page of your entire site. In that case yoursite.scrollhelp.site will automatically redirect to yoursite.scrollhelp.site/content-source-1.
