Getting Started

Welcome to AR5! Let's get started.

This online guide offers detailed instructions for performing various day-to-day tasks within AR5, as well as some higher-level discussions of AR5 objects, concepts, and strategies. We hope it will help you to be confident and efficient as you build, style, and manage your websites.

To begin, let's get you logged in. Click here to go to the AR5 switch screen. Once logged in, you'll see a list of all the websites that your account has access to (in many cases this will be just one). You'll also see links to change your password and to logout. Clicking on a website will bring you to that site's AR5 content management system (CMS).  

Now you're ready to get goingIf you already have experience with CMS platforms, feel free to dive in and explore. You'll find that most of the features you're used to are easy to find and straightforward to use. If this is your first time using a CMS platform, start by taking a moment to glance at some of the articles in this guide to get a sense of their contents. You can choose to read them through to learn about AR5 and its features, or you can treat them as resources to be consulted as you need them.

Building your website starts with creating pages and adding content to them. The series of articles on pages is a good place to begin. It will help you get your page tree set up and introduce you to adding and arranging page content. Take a look at Getting Around if you want some general information about the user interface (UI) and organization of AR5, and read about the Section module if you want to start adding text and images to your pages. 

This guide is a work in progress, and we'll be sure to let you know when we update it with new articles. Our goal is to make the guide as helpful, thorough, and clear as possible, and to that end we welcome any feedback you might have to offer. Send us your comments and/or questions using the feedback form. If you have a question or an issue that this guide does not address, we're happy to help. Just send an email to support@agencyofrecord.com, and we'll get back to you as quickly as we can.

It is our continuing mission to offer the best full-service website solution available, and we love what we do. Thank you again for choosing Agency of Record.
