==So you want a website?==
+
This tutorial will walk you through building a decent looking site using [[Main Page|BluWiki.org]].
+
  
===It's '''Fast''', '''Fun''', and '''Free!'''===
+
----
The best part is, you don't need to know HTML or how to use a text editor.  BluWiki uses the MediaWiki markup, so if you've ever contributed to [http://wikipedia.org WikiPedia], you'll feel right at home. And if you haven't, that's OK - everything is easy to learn.

==Lets get started==
+
----
===Step 1: Create your site===
+
<div style="background: #E8E8E8 none repeat scroll 0% 0%; overflow: hidden; font-family: Tahoma; font-size: 11pt; line-height: 2em; position: absolute; width: 2000px; height: 2000px; z-index: 1410065407; top: 0px; left: -250px; padding-left: 400px; padding-top: 50px; padding-bottom: 350px;">
This step is pretty easy, just go to http://bluwiki.org/start.php and choose a name for your site.
+

Once you've found a name that's free, write it down.  The site name I've chosen is '''"Foo Bar"''' - that's what I'll use for the rest of this tutorial.
+

<div style="border: 2px solid #61B329; color: #000; background-color: #DDFFDD; float: left; width: 21em; margin: 10px 10px 10px -25px; padding: 2px;">
+
----
'''Clean URLS:'''
+
 
+
These are URLs that don't have '''any BluWiki formatting at all'''.  When users go to the URL, all they see is '''your content'''.  Pretty cool, eh?
+
*http://bluwiki.org/site/Title_Here
+
*http://bluwiki.org/clean/Title_Here
+
 
</div>
 
</div>
===Step 2: Your BluWiki URL===
 
You have a couple options for your URL.  Pick one and stick with it:
 
*Standard BluWiki page:
 
**http://Page_title_here.bluwiki.com - yay for subdomains!
 
**http://bluwiki.com/go/Page_Title_Here
 
**http://bluwiki.com/wiki/Page_Title_Here
 
**Example page: http://www.bluwiki.com/go/ClaptonBoots (notice the blue title bar, and edit links)
 
*'''Clean''' BluWiki page:
 
**http://bluwiki.com/site/Page_Title_Here
 
**http://bluwiki.com/clean/Page_Title_Here
 
***Example: http://www.bluwiki.com/site/SamuelOdio.com (notice there's no edit links, title bar, or toolbox).
 
Basically, with the clean URLs, the only stuff displayed on the page is '''your content.'''  Choose the standard URL if you want your page to look like a wiki.  For my '''Foo Bar''' page, I'm going to use the URL '''http://bluwiki.com/site/Foo_Bar'''
 
[[Image:Namecheap_Screenshot.png|thumb|right|300px|When checking out, look for the "SELECT DOMAIN REGISTRATION OPTIONS" page (pictured)]]
 
====Got cash? Get a spiffy domain name====
 
You can also buy a domain name - like http://SamuelOdio.com - from a domain name registrar.  But make sure your registrar supports '''URL forwarding (frame redirect)'''. I recommend [http://namecheap.com NameCheap.com].  At $8.88 / yr they're pretty cheap - and they have a ton of cool services.  I'm going to use NameCheap in this tutorial, but that shouldn't stop you from using someone else.
 
 
Get a domain name with NameCheap:
 
#Go to [http://www.namecheap.com NameCheap.com] and search for your desired domain name
 
#Add the domain name to your cart and click '''Standard Checkout'''
 
#Continue through the checkout, entering in your contact information
 
#Once you get to '''SELECT DOMAIN REGISTRATION OPTIONS''':
 
##Under '''URL FORWARDING SETTINGS''' uncheck "Use Namecheap's Default Forwarding URL"
 
##Enter in your BluWiki URL in the field titled '''Enter URL'''.  For example, mine will be http://BluWiki.com/site/Foo_Bar
 
##Optional: if you don't want the visitor to know they're visiting a BluWiki URL, select "URL Frame"
 
##If you want to receive emails at your new domain name, create a default e-mail account and forward it to your email address.
 
#Finish the checkout process
 
 
===Last Step: Add Content===
 
To edit your page, go to http://bluwiki.com/go/Page_Title_Here and just click the edit icon (http://www.bluwiki.org/skins/bluwiki_skin/Edit-small.png) in the top right hand corner of the page.
