Welcome Tour

Final Steps

Congratulations! You've made it to the final guide in our Welcome Tour. You now have a good idea how BoltWire works, and a hint of what it can do. That means you are just about ready to get busy building your site!

But actually, there's one more thing I recommend doing next:

Get Connected

If you are not yet a member, let me encourage you to plug into our BoltWire community. To do that, take a second to join our Community Mail List. It's a great way to rub shoulders with others who are using BoltWire to build engaged, interactive communities.

Use it to ask questions, share feedback, or talk about the future development of BoltWire. You can even suggest ways to improve these tutorials! We use it to announce updates, new features, and security patches to BoltWire and it's core engine. And any other BoltWire news you might find interesting.

Together, we can work to make BoltWire better for everyone!

Our archives are also fully searchable on Google Groups, so if you have a question, you can search there and see if it's been asked before. And maybe answered!

It's a friendly mailing list for those who want to explore the inner workings of BoltWire and help shape its development. Hobby and amateur coders welcome!

Moving Forward

This concludes our welcome tour. You now have all the info you need to get started, and begin moving forward.

To get busy building your site, this is what we recommend next: check out the Site Checklist in our Download area for the first 10 things you should do to get your site going. Basically it's a cheatsheet of all the pages and settings you are most likely to want to customize. Knock out that checklist, and it should give you a good head start in getting all the basics of your site in place.

If you get stuck, or you are not sure how to do something on your site that you want, explore our Handbook. There is also a section with documentation for our free and pro Extensions. Between all our BoltWire resources, there's a vast realm of possibilities for you to explore. Enjoy!

Congrats again on completing this welcome tour. All the best as you build your site...
