Introducing Docs (Beta)

Docs-beta out since 1st of march 2020

These days every project needs some sort of documentation, blog and or help-center, in order to help your customers or visitors to get the information they are looking for.

Let's assume that you need a help-center and a blog for your product. Using our Docs you can create both of them by creating two sites with different styles.

What site styles do we offer?

For the beta, we started with the help-center style since this is the most common style type that you might need. The final release will also introduce documentation, blog and update styles.

How do you access your site?

Every site has its sub-domain. You can set a domain like your-product.helpspace-docs.io or you could just have your custom domain like docs.your-domain.com. Creating your custom domain will be available soon.

What about branding?

Of course, it's important to change the site style to fit your brand identity. No worries, we got you covered! Changing the logo and colors of your site is easily done within the site settings.

What is the writing experience like?

The main focus we have is to provide a pain-free writing experience since this is the most important thing to be productive and write good content. We kept the editor very clean and minimalistic to remove all distractions and even implemented a "focus mode" Bildschirmfoto-2020-03-03-um-00.23.16.png which will put the editor in front of everything.

Do I need to manually save my articles?

Articles are always autosaved as working drafts and these changes will not appear until you publish your new version.

Visibility of a Site

If you want to present a site to your customers it must be visible. You find this switch also in the site settings. By default, a new site is not visible.

Sort mode

By clicking on the sort-mode-button drag handles will appear behind every article and category. Use this handle to bring your content into the right order.
