Users with the OC System Administrator or OC Site Manager roles are responsible for managing all aspects of their site(s), including site management, users, and content management. This User Guide will touch on several different topics; it is intended to be a starting point for learning about the OpenCities product and a springboard for more advanced features and tools you can use with your site.

You can also sign up for our regular refresher training sessions, and key contacts in your organization can submit a support case for additional assistance.
