Customize the Magellan site configuration - Cloud

Magellan

The siteconfig.json file is used to switch parts of your website ON or OFF, or configure the way it operates. It is located in the Magellan engine top-level folder.

Do not modify the siteconfg.json file. Instead, add a copy of the themeconfig.json file generated on publish to <your theme name> top-level folder. Copy and paste settings from the siteconfg.json file and customize as required. The themeconfig.json settings extend or override the same siteconfg.json settings on book publish.

Pro Tip: Keep themeconfig.json as simple as possible, and just copy the settings you want to change from siteconfg.json, as you need to change them.

To generate a themeconfig.json file:

  1. Publish your Magellan site.
  2. Download the output and extract the files.

    In the folder you should have a themeconfig.json file.

  3. Upload the themeconfig.json file to Files, into <your theme name> top-level folder.
  4. Copy and paste settings from the siteconfg.json file and customize as required.
