Start with a Template

You can add Static CMS to an existing site, but the quickest way to get started is with a template. Found below, our featured templates deploy a bare-bones site and Static CMS to Netlify, giving you a fully working CMS-enabled site with just a few clicks.

After clicking one of those buttons, authenticate with GitHub and choose a repository name. Netlify then automatically creates a clone of the repository in your GitHub account. Next, it builds and deploys the new site on Netlify, bringing you to the site dashboard after completing the build.

Note for GitLab and Bitbucket users: Static CMS supports GitLab and Bitbucket repositories, but won't work with the Deploy to Netlify buttons above without additional configuration (See GitLab or Bitbucket respectively).

Access Static CMS

  1. The template deploy process sends you an invitation to your new site, sent from Sample email subject line: You've been invited to join
  2. Wait for the deployment to complete, then click the link to accept the invite. Your site will open with a prompt to create a password. "Complete your signup" modal on the Kaldi coffee site
  3. Enter a password, sign in, and you'll go to Static CMS. (For future visits, you can go straight to <>/admin/.)

Try adding and editing posts, or changing the content of the Products page. When you save, the changes are pushed immediately to your Git repository, triggering a build on Netlify, and updating the content on your site. Check out the configuration code by visiting your site repo.
