If you have just created your own Radio Website
and want a quick overview, this Getting Started Guide is for you! We'll show you how to set up
If you haven't activated your free 7-day demo yet,
now's the time to do so. You can activate it by clicking here
Access your Radio Website
To access your website, head over to your mailbox and open the email with the subject line: Your Radio Website is ready!
(If you can't find it, go to the Spam/Junk section of your mailbox).
In this email you will find all the information to access the administration of your website, as well as your login and password.
You are now ready to follow the 10 essential steps to get your website up and running:
1. Configure your settings
One of the first things to do is to configure the settings of your website. Head over to the Configuration module, this is the last module of the menu.
Under Parameters>Configuration>General Settings
you will be able to enter the first elements of your website such as the name of your radio, the favicon (icon that appears in a tab), a description etc...
The title of your page will appear in the tab of your browser, as shown in the image above.
To find out more about the General Settings of your website, click here
2. Choose a theme and edit your logo
Head over to Appearance > Design
in your website manager. A theme is already selected by default, but you can change it whenever you want or need to. You can change it by clicking the theme name. To learn more about the different themes available, click here
You can then add the logo of your radio station and replace the one that is automatically proposed for your free demonstration.
The logo of your radio station will appear at the top or at the bottom or in the menu, depending on which theme you have selected. For optimal rendering, we recommend importing your logo in PNG format (with a transparent background).
You can also customize it according to your tastes or according to the graphic charter of your radio. To do so, simply go to the Appearance > Design
module and click on Edit design online.
You will then be redirected to the online editor
. In this editor, you will be able to easily change the colors of the different elements by choosing backgrounds or themes in the Presets.
3. Configure your radio player
In order for your site to broadcast your radio, you must configure the Players module.
Head over to Parameters>Players to modify the radio that is already configured for the demo. To add your own stream, click on Add a radio.

4. Change the image of your home page
To change the photos on your homepage, go to Content>Sliders. You can unpublish or delete the sliders to disable the display of images in the demo version. To add your own images, click Add a Slider.

5. Modify your homepage
The content of your home is arranged by blocks. To modify these blocks, add the modules you want and customize your home page, go to Appearance> Home page.
Modify the blocks already present by clicking on the pencil icon and choosing the module you want instead. You can delete a whole line by clicking on delete layout.

8. Configure the sidebar
When you go to a page on your website, a sidebar appears on the right-hand side of your page. To change this layout, go to Appearance > Sidebar.

9. Add your own domain name
You can easily add your own domain name
to your radio website if you have one! For that you will need, at first, to buy your domain with a Registrar
such as OVH or Gandi.
Once you have purchased your domain name, follow the steps in this tutorial
to link it to your RadioKing website.
10. Add users
If you wish to invite your team to manage and feed content to your Radio Website, you can invite them under Parameters>Users.
