The main thing you’ll be doing in Foleon is creating content, which you create in a Foleon Doc. These hold all your content, divided into different pages enriched with text, images, and other elements. In the dashboard, you can access and manage the different Foleon Docs per project.
On top of the project settings that apply to all Foleon Docs within a project, each Doc also has its own settings that only apply to that specific Foleon Doc. We’ve conveniently grouped these into settings regarding the Basics, Marketing, Navigation, and Access Control.
