Learn how Enso Cloud can power your custom designed website.

Getting Started

Introduction

Enso Cloud is a content management system and hosting platform rolled into one nifty solution. Enso makes life easier for web designers by eliminating all the tedious work associated with creating a new website. There's no software to install, configuration files or databases to setup. You don't even need to worry about servers or hosting because we handle all that for you.

Requirements
  • Knowledge of HTML, CSS & FTP
  • Modern Web Browser – Chrome, Safari, Firefox or IE8+

The Basics

The basic building blocks of all Enso websites are templates and Enso tags.

A template is an HTML file uploaded to the root directory of the website.
<html>
...
<body>
   <div><enso:content name="hello-world" /></div>
</body>
</html>

You manage your templates via FTP access. To find your FTP username and password, login to your website and go to Manage Design in the toolbar drop-down. Note: Templates must be uploaded to the root directory.

An Enso tag adds functionality like editable content or navigation to your templates and looks very similar to HTML.
<html>
...
<body>
   <div><enso:content name="hello-world" /></div>
</body>
</html>

Tag Attributes

Most tags have attributes which allow the designer to control various aspects of the tag.

Name Attribute
The most common attribute is name which is used to associate dynamic content with a specific tag.
<html>
...
<body>
   <div><enso:content name="hello-world" /></div>
</body>
</html>

Level Attribute
Another common attribute is level which allows content to persists at various levels of your website. The beauty of multi-level content is that when you edit content at one level it will update at all other levels.  
  • Site level content appears on all pages within the website.
  • Section level content appears on all pages within a section.
  • Page level content appears only on an individual page. 
<html>
...
<body>
   <div><enso:content name="hello-world" level="site" /></div>
</body>
</html>
