Create A Site

 Last Edited: Jul 02, 2019

When you create a new site, there are a few key options that you'll need to consider, depending on the type of migration you are doing.

Like-For-Like

If you are doing a like-for-like migration you won't need Design System included in your site, as you will use the existing assets and content on your site.

Make sure "Design System" is unticked in the site creation modal.

Design System

If you are going to improve your site layouts to modernise them and make them more responsive, you'll want to include Design System when you create your site.

Make sure "Design System" is ticked in the site creation modal. This will automatically include bootstrap 4 in your templates. When you install Siteglide Modules, such as Slider, Menu and more, you will receive Design System Layouts with them.

Bespoke

If you are going to do a fully bespoke rebuild of your site, there are a couple of routes you can take.

You may want to include Design System in your site so you can easily make use of Bootstrap 4 and have access to the Design System Layouts.

You can also choose to start with a blank site, not include the Design System and build the site just using your own libraries.
