Let me give you a traditional example first to set the context. The filesystem of a traditional static website with a single
index.html file could look like this:
That’s it. You store the HTML code in the
index.html file and upload it onto your server.
In contrast, the Boomla equivalent would look like this:
In Boomla, every file is a directory at the same time. This means we don’t need an extra
index.html file as you can store the HTML code directly in your root file.
On the other hand, you can't change the file extension of the root file (think
example.com), so Boomla has file types instead. To serve a HTML document, set the file's type to
You can create multiple pages like this:
The point of this step was to show you how easy it is to get started with using Boomla.
