Website Tonight Video Tour by (early 2009)

Thanks for checking out this Show Me Around Actioncast. In this Actioncast, we’ll look at Website Tonight, an Internet based, do-it-yourself Web site creation tool. With Website Tonight, you can easily build a professional-looking Web site, regardless of your level and experience.

When you log in to your Website Tonight account, you’re first taken to the Home Page, where we offer a number of ways to manage your site. In the Site Information section you can: view and edit basic site information and your template, upgrade your account, or edit a specific page you’ve created. The Get Started section let’s you add and design your site pages or add other elements to your site, such as files and images, a forum, guestbook, or Flash intro. You can even connect your Web site to your online store if you have one. You can also access various Tools and Resources, to help manage different elements of your site. We’ve even added help and New Features sections, so you ca view articles on frequently asked questions and check out our latest improvements to Website Tonight.

To build your Web pages, from the Design menu, select “Launch Page Designer.” The Page Design toolbar contains options to modify text (with all the standard formatting options), change layouts, add and delete pages, and insert various items into your page. The toolbar updates based on your selection in the content blocks in the WYSIWYG (“What You See Is What You Get”) portion of the page. For example, if I click a new content block, I get one set of options; if I click and image in a block, I get different options in the Options tab.

Editing your site is as simple as clicking content blocks and making your changes. After clicking a content block to edit, simply begin typing to enter or modify text. From the insert tab at the top of the screen, you can insert a single image or an entire image collection and other items, including movies, Flash, music, calendars, RSS feeds, Widgets, tables, forms, scripts, you name it.

Website Tonight offers many features to help you design a robust Web site that fits your needs and impresses your family, friends, and clients. We encourage you to work with WebSite Tonight to see how it can best work for you. If you need any assistance, you can access the Help Center by clicking Help in the upper right corner, or by calling Nerd Warehouse at (480) 624-2500 – open 24 / 7 / 365.
