The core competence of phpWebSite is managing content. That's why it's called a content management system. There are a couple of guides on how to install phpWS technically and how to work with modules.
Then, there's the actual content. I couldn't find a common practice guide on how to write content for phpWebSite. So I did one on my own. Enjoy!
Stylesheets vs. direct formatting
As a Word user, you might be used to formatting your text directly. Bold here, Arial 10pt there, document ready to be served. You could choose that approach for phpWebSite as well. Then, you'd give up a whole lot of flexibility.
On the other hand, it's possible to use Stylesheets in Word. They are very obvious there, just choose "Heading 1", "Paragraph" and whatnot from a dropdown list. Companies love that approach, because it gives them consistent documents for the whole company.
Stylesheets in phpWebSite
The option of formatting text directly, be it bold, italics, underline or whatever, is pretty obvious in Article Manager. But how do you choose paragraph styles?
The short answer: You don't.
A bit more verbose: Right now, Article Manager, uses htmlArea. This nice plugin allows all the nasty formatting, that you should actually avoid for consistency.
If you don't use them, you'll get better content. Then again, you're on your own. No fancy buttons, no clicking around. It's not as hard as it sounds, I do it all the time.
