Chapter 5 - The HubSpace

WHAT IS A HUBSPACE?
If you have more than one website, you can create a HubSpace. If your membership level allows only one website, you can skip this section.

A HubSpace acts as a portal or entry point to your websites. Your HubSpace is the default website used when you enter the simplest LayerSpace URL (www.layerspace.com?your_username). You can also choose to set any other website as your default website, in which case the HubSpace will be de-activated.

EDITING THE HUBSPACE
Click on ‘HUBSPACE’ from the 'JUMP TO' menu. If this is the first time you have been to this page you will need to click ‘Create hubspace now’. Your HubSpace will be created and you will then need to activate it by selecting ‘HUBSPACE’ from the drop-down menu in the light blue bar, and clicking ‘change’.

ADDING A WEBSITE TO YOUR HUBSPACE
First you need to create a Group or Groups to which you can add whichever websites you wish. You could for example create a Group called ‘Portfolio’ and one called ‘Clients’. The name of the Group is used as a title in the HubSpace.

GROUPS
Click on ‘GROUPS’ from the top tab bar, click ‘create new group’ and then enter a name for the group and click ‘add group’ again. Websites shown on the right can be dragged to a group’s box to add them to that group. To remove a website from a Group, drag it back to the right hand column or to another Group. To edit a Group name, click on the pencil icon to the right of the name. To delete a group, click the red ‘X’ icon.
NOTE: Deleting a Group does not delete any websites, Galleries or Text Pages.

TITLES/LINKS
The links that are added when a website is added to a Group are made using the name of that website. The exception being if there is only one website in a Group, in which case the name of the Group is used.

LINKS BACK TO YOUR HUBSPACE FROM WEBSITES
When a website is added to a Group in the HubSpace, that website will gain a link to return to the HubSpace. This behaviour can be changed using the option ‘show hubspace link’ when clicking ‘details’ from the HubSpace page.

HUBSPACE TEMPLATES
HubSpace templates are always HTML (ie not Flash) and are edited in the same way as a normal text page. See the ‘Text Pages’ section of this guide for more information.

EDITING HUBSPACE CONTENT
Click ‘CONTENT’ from the top tab bar and edit content in the same way as a Text Page.
See ‘Text Pages’ for more details.
