Spaces in open atrium are called the collection of content and users you can create within your website. These website elements are commonly used as the top element of the hierarchy of pages on your website. In this tutorial we are going to show you how to create a new space on your website.
There are few ways you can use in order to create a Space. First and probably most convenient is the Create New Space option in the Spaces menu:
The second and a bit timely way is via the Admin>Content menu and then the Space option on that page.
No matter which from these ways you will use the result will be always the same Space creation page which we will further discuss in Step 2 of this tutorial.
Once you have started the creation process following one of the provided ways in Step 1 you will be redirected to a page where you will need to configure few options in order for your space to be created.
Let’s begin with the simple settings of your new Space. First you will notice that you will have to fill the Title and Description fields.
Bellow these fields you will find the Inheritence and Banner files. The Inheritence interface will provide you with the options to configure the newly create space as a child space of some other already existing space in order for the new space to inherit the users and options of the parent space.
The Banner space will provide you with the option upload an image as banner of the newly created space. This image will be displayed on the full width of the browser.
If you scroll up to the top of the page you should be able to notice few additional options in the sidebar section of the page. There you will be able to find the following blocks of settings:
Once you are done with the configuration of your new space please press the Publish button so the space can be saved.
Congratulations! You can now create as many new spaces as you would like to have on your website!
