Creating a new project is easy using the gomo new project wizard which guides you through some initial decisions about your project and sets the project up for you. 


Remember: one of the great things about gomo is that screen size isn't one of the initial decisions! gomo's responsive and adaptive layout means that it will automatically work across all screen sizes.

  • starting the project wizard 
  • setting the project name and default resource folder 
  • choosing a theme 
  • setting the number of topics 
  • choosing the project features such as help and accessibility

1

Project details

You will have the option to enter the following information about the project:


Project name

The name of the project as seen within the portal but also the name that gets output in the published version.


Description

A brief description of the project so other users know what the project relates to.


Default resource location

Users can choose which resource folder will be the default location where resources will be stored for this project. This not only makes it quicker to locate resources when using the editor, but also means you can add image placeholders to your content even before you have the images. You can then simply upload the images to this location when they are available.


Project Folder

You can organize your projects into folders. This option lets you specify where your new project will be created.


Language

You can have more than one language version of your project. See this article to find out more.

2

Choose a theme

To determine the look and feel of your project, you can choose from one of the core gomo themes, or if you have already created a customized theme it will be available here.

3

Project content configuration

To get started quickly, you can choose the default configuration of your project. The configuration options options include:


  • Introduction topic

  • Menu

  • No. of content topics

  • Help

  • Glossary


You don’t need to set any of these options if you do not wish to. They are simply a way of building a project structure quickly. If you prefer, you can skip this step and start creating your project structure from scratch.

4

Project access

If you have the small teams edition or enterprise edition, you will be able to select which users in your account will be able to access the project.


When you have completed the above steps, your project will be set up in the portal and ready for you to begin creating content.
