We plunge in with a new project, similar to the pre-installed 'Animal information - Demo' project of the trial installation.
Adding a new project
To add a new project you put your mouse pointer on the ‘Content’ object in the tree (you do not have to select it), popup the menu and select the ‘New > Project’ item. On the window that opens you enter the project name.
Adding the project name and description
The project name is used to access all the content objects in a project over the Internet.
If you specify a project name, consider the following guidelines.
The name must be unique within the entire HelpServer system.
Keep the name meaningful but avoid using long names.
If the name consists of multiple words, use a '_' (underscore) or a '-' (hyphen) instead of blanks.
The project name cannot contain '.' (dot).
Translation is not applicable.
A message box can popup as a reminder.
Project name guideline
Enter for example 'ANIMALS' as project name. (see also Renaming projects).
You also need to enter a description for example ‘Animal information’. The description is the title of the content object. This is what people actually see. It can be changed and translated afterwards.
Click ‘OK’ and the new project folder is added under ‘Content’.
New project added
Each project is equipped with a 'Project gallery' folder to hold all media files used in the content objects. We will explore the project gallery later.
