So glad you’re trying out Netlify CMS! Netlify CMS is an open source content management for your Git workflow. It’s light weight, easy to use, and works with a variety of static site generators (SSGs)
If you are having issues, here are some solutions to common problems, explained.
- Make sure to have
netlify-identity-widgetinstalled on your website’s main page and initialized. This will allow your CMS users to verify their account by clicking the link in the email they receive when you invite them via Identity.
- make sure you deploy your
config.ymlfile along with the CMS as mentioned in the File Structure section of the ‘Add to your site’ documentation.
- Have you checked for an existing issue on the Netlify CMS repository that might address the issue you are experiencing? Filing issues in the repository lets other users help out, along with documenting the problem itself. It’s easy to do using the GitHub user interface.
If you’ve checked those points over and still have questions, head over to our very active Gitter channel for some support, as that is the primary place where Netlify CMS questions get answered. If that still doesn’t help, comment below and we’ll point you in the right direction!
