    Finished tutorial...now what? Link to this post

    I am really like SS. But I am missing something I guess. I got a new hosting account, installed SS from the web hosts installer, and have gone completely throught the tutorial. Everything works great, but everything is in 'tutorial'. I don't find clear steps on moving what I developed so far from 'tutorial' to 'mysite'. I want to be able to implement some of the downloadable themes. Also my 'mysite' folder does not contain a _config.php file. Obviously I am a major noob but love what I see. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Just move everything in the tutorial folder to /mysite/ and flush and rebuild (db/build?flush=1)

    This seems to be a bit of a secret - but there isn't anything special about the mysite folder. Any subfolder with a _config.php is built into your site =)

    Though, if you move _config.php out of tutorial, you must edit it to change the $project variable from tutorial to mysite, or you'll get warnings at the top of ever page.

    Ah, forgot about that.

    Made me think though... its only really important use is in ManifestBuilder for template precendence, no? Perhaps there is an argument for making it a static var of ManifestBuilder instead.

    Maybe a discussion for the dev group.
