The GhostWriter

The GhostWriter gives you a radically new way to keep your page content fresh and attractive - to visitors and search engines alike - using limitless (and intelligent) variations on text, buttons, and images.  Now, you can use the provided pages in your XSite plus get the benefits of customized content - saving the expense and time of customizing the page on your own.

The process is simple, and you can activate the feature in less than 5 minutes.  Here's how:

  1. Log in to your XSite's Admin.
  2. Click XSite in the menu at the top and select My Content from the the Content pane on the left.

  3. Now, in the list of the pages in your site, a GhostWriter icon (  ) appears beside each page where GhostWriter is available.

  4. Click on the name of any of page marked with this icon to open the Content Editor.
  5. In the Content Editor, you'll see the name of the current template in the drop-down box.  Next to that you'll find the ReWrite Page button.

    Click ReWrite Page to create a new variation on the selected template.  Keep in mind that this is a variation on the prewritten content; anything you have typed since you last saved will be changed when you click this button.

  6. Now, you'll see the results of the rewriting in the Content Editor.  If you like, you can click ReWrite Page again to see another version of the content.
  7. When you're happy with your results, scroll to the bottom and click Save and Close.

Now, you have the option to have your pages rewritten with fresh content on a schedule, so you don't have to refresh them manually.  To do so:

  1. In the My Content step of the Wizard, click the GhostWriter icon.

  2. A window appears which allows you to set a schedule on which your pages will be rewritten with fresh content.  You can also choose to apply this rewriting schedule to any page where you've enabled the GhostWriter.  Simply check each box to enable the feature, choose the interval in which the page should be regenerated, and click Apply.

    When a page is scheduled to be rewritten, a blue GhostWriter icon (  ) appears next to the page to indicate the the content for this page is scheduled to be automatically rewritten.

  3. After you've made your changes, be sure to click Save in the upper right.
