Welcome to Kulture Shock!
Congratulations, you've got a new website! Now what? This article will guide you through the initial process of setting up and customizing your website.
The Control Center
The Control Center is where you upload, edit and manage all the content for your website. Use your account username and password (sent to you by email after registration) to log in here: https://admin.kultureshock.net.
1 : Set up website options and menu
Click on the Website Options tab to add a more descriptive Description of your website and add more Keywords (but not too many). These are important because they will be used by search engines when indexing your website. To set up Google Analytics for your website, refer to this article.
Click on the Menu tab within Website Options to modify your website menu. This is where you can change tab names and page titles (keep in mind that changing the page name does not change how it functions), turn off website pages you don't need, and change the order of how tabs appear on your website menu. Always remember to click the Save button after you've made changes. See this article for more information.
2 : Choose a design theme and customize it
Click on the Design tab to choose a design theme for your website. Click on the Customize button to select a color scheme, fonts, upload banner images, and other options. See this article for more detailed information about customizing your theme.
3 : Start adding your content
Click on the Content tab to start entering content for your website. There you'll see additional tabs that correspond to each content section of your website such as biographies, acclaim, recordings, programs, photo galleries, etc. To start entering content, just click on the + Add [Content Type] buttons in each content section and simply fill out the forms then click on the Save button.
To include a photo with new content you just entered, click on the Save & Add Photo button instead of the Save button. Your content will be saved and you'll be presented with a form that allows you to select a photo from your computer and add a title and caption for the photo. See the Photos FAQ for detailed information about uploading and using photos on your website.
Some content for your website may also be located on the Widgets tab. This is where you will find things like links, news rotator, and social media settings.
4 : Set up Contact Messenger
The Contact Messenger widget appears on your Contacts page and provides a form so people can send you a message via email directly from your website. In order for it to work you need to provide an email address where the messages can be sent. Click on Widgets, the click on Contact Messenger to set the delivery email address and other settings.
5 : Media and the Digital Press Kit
All of your website's media and press kit files — audio, video, PDF documents and high-resolution press photos — can be added in the Content ⇨ Media/DPK section. The audio and video files you add here will populate both the Media Center and Digital Press Kit (DPK) pages on your website. The DPK page will also include all press photos and documents. But you can control which types of content appear on the DPK page by clicking on Content ⇨ Media/DPK ⇨ Preferences.
