Using the included business catalyst space

Tags: #business_catalyst

With full Adobe Create Cloud membership I get 5 websites from Business Catalyst included.

 

Cool!

 

But what if I am not interested in the Adobe CMS tools, and want to install say a Wordpress of Drupal webiste in this Business Catalyst space (this 20GB of space and five websitges offered): is this possible?

 

(This should be possible as we developers should be allowed to use the tools/platforms that we want to use.)

 

Thnks

    Hi David -

     

    The answer to your question is yes. Creative Cloud comes with free web hosting for 5 sites, regardless of how you create your website. You can log in to BC using your Creative Cloud account information here: http://www.businesscatalyst.com/admin/Index.aspx

     

    If you are starting a blog from scratch and have a pre-made Wordpress theme, you can just import the html code into BC, but if you want to import an existing blog from Wordpress, here's a tutorial on how to do so: http://www.sitepoint.com/migrating-your-wordpress-blog-to-adobe-busine ss-catalyst/

     

    As a side note, the websites created with your Creative Cloud membership operate under the WebBasics plan. You can learn more about the different BC pricing plans here: http://www.adobe.com/products/business-catalyst/buying-guide-subscript ions.edu.html

     

    If you have any questions specifically about building a site in Business Catalyst, you'll be able to get expert help from the Business Catalyst forum: http://forums.adobe.com/community/business_catalyst

    Hi again! Let me try to answer the questions you have remaining...

    the Adobe creative cloud dashboard bears no resemblance to the dashboard as shown in the Wordpress import article you cite above

              The article I referred you to does not include Creative Cloud in the workflow. You would be logging into Business Catalyst with your Creative Cloud membership login information, and creating your website from within the BC platform. I have never had any personal experience importing a Wordpress blog to Business Catalyst, so the folks over at the Business Catalyst forum can probably be able give you much more comprehensive help.

     

    could it be that, whilst Creative Cloud indeed comes with free web hosting for 5 sites, these are for just your WebBasics version (i.e. Creative Cloud comes with free web hosting for 5 WebBasics sites)

              Correct. The Creative Cloud memberhsip includes free web hosting for 5 sites through Business Catalyst that operate under the WebBasics subscription level, as outlined here.

     

     

    if so, where is this explicitly stated in your documentation?

     

              From the Adobe Creative Cloud product page: "Your Adobe Creative Cloud membership includes hosting for up to five Business Catalyst webBasics sites."

     

    I hope I was able to clear up things up for you. You might want to check out this FAQ post for some more information about Creative Cloud + Business Catalyst.

     

    Cheers!
