In our series of articles called "First Steps" we want to show you how to create and expand tours with our Virtual Tour Center.
In this article we deal with the important features of the Tour-Dashboard while creating a tour. After successfully creating a tour, the Tour-Dashboard will be the next step.
The Dashboard is divided in several categories:
In the general settings you can determine the fundamental settings.
Next to title of the tour, description as well as tour-status (online/offline) you can state the meta-data for the robots of the tour. This should specify whether the tour should be found in search engines or not.
You also upload a Favicon and a Touch-Icon as well as background music.
If you want to make your tour internationally available you can add several languages to your tour. For that you just have to select the languages that should become a part of your tour.
By the way: The activated languages can be shown as flag symbols in the sidebar of your tour.
