How do I create my first site?

Step 1

Log-in to Tank and follow the ‘Create a site’ link to kick off the process. During the first step you will now be prompted to fill in the following fields:

  • site name
  • site strapline
  • site sub-domain

Please note that at this stage ‘site domain’ refers to a sub-domain on our server: in other words. You can choose to upgrade your site at a later stage in order to make it accessible at

Make sure you set your site’s time zone correctly, and choose whether you want to keep your site private (requires log-in), hidden from the search engines (Google won’t index it) or public (immediately available to everyone).

You can easily change any of these settings at a later stage from the site’s Config screen.

Step 2

The second step of the process involves you choosing an appropriate skin for your new site. Choose one that catches your eye to kick things off - you can easily switch to another skin later on.

Once you choose ‘Done’ your new site will be ready and structured according to your specifications. It’s up to you now to start adding & managing content to your site and to customise the design of your site.
