Chapter 1 - Technical Requirements

In order to use the LayerSpace Content Management System (CMS) you will need to have cookies enabled in your browser. The cookie only stores information that is needed in order to move from one part of the CMS to another. No personal information is stored on the cookie.

When you have finished a CMS session, please log out of your LayerSpace. This is especially important when using a computer in a public space such as an internet cafe or library, as it could be possible for someone to gain access to your LayerSpace details. The CMS is set up to automatically log you out after 15 minutes of inactivity.

You will need to use a modern browser with Javascript enabled and (for certain functions) pop-up windows allowed.

The system has been tested with the following browser/operating system combinations

Mac OS X

Internet Explorer

If you have a choice, we suggest and recommend using Firefox. You can download it here

The CMS may work with other operating system/browser combinations but no guarantee can be made that full functionality will be available.

To view websites (which we also refer to as Spaces), galleries and text pages, again a fairly modern browser is required, with cookies enabled if password protection is being used. For Flash templates, Flash player version 8 or higher is required. Most computers built since 2006 will comply with these requirements.

The lightbox option also requires that the user has Javascript and cookies enabled.

If you are unsure as to whether or not your computer is suitable, the easiest way is to try it and see!


"Just wanted to say that I love my new website. It was so easy to set up and design in such a way that it is as close as possible to my old custom designed site and it's incredibly easy to update with new work. The price is great too and I can't say enough good things. I think you have a terrific product here!"
Claire Newman-Williams
