When you open your sitebuilder you first need to select a Style. This is selected from the bottom right hand side and a panel of Style choices will be seen. Select one that you want to use to build your site.

The next thing to do is to decide what content you wish to include in your site on your home page. If you wish to add some text then on the right hand side, you will see a widgets tab. Open that and you will see 8 classes of widgets. If you now select basic then you will see a text widget within the basic group. Click on that and drag it onto your page. When it is successfully dragged onto the page it will open up and in that you can then add whatever text you wish to type in. You can increase the text size, you can choose your text colour and so on.

Most widgets act in a similar way.
