Hi all, I am new here and new to CMS, I have installed Silverstripe successfully, but I was hoping to be able to use the software to manage content already created and live, is it possible, or can you only manage websites that are created using SilverStripe?

Many Thanks
Jamie

Hi Jamie,

Welcome to the Forums!

Silverstripe does indeed manage content within it's own database and structure only. It might be possible to migrate content from another site - wither with something existing for say wordpress - or something custom if the site is currently using a proprietary content system.
