The following guide provides a quick and easy step-by-step guide to get you started building a website using a Website Channel in unroole. This guide already assumes you already have a Profile and and Account setup on unroole. If you do not have a Profile and and Account, you will need an invitation or pre-setup profile first. If you have a profile but do not have an account yet, you can simply follow the Creating A New Account section of the Account article.
