This concludes the site setup.
While the front-end of the site uses the KurocoFront demo template, the back-end (admin panel) is user-customizable. Next, we will briefly walk through how to add content to your site from the admin panel.

Introduction to the Content module

The Content module in your admin panel allows you to view, add, and edit any content that is displayed on your site. You can set the layout and formatting of text and media elements directly from the back-end using Kuroco's low-code UI.

Below is a quick guide on how to view and add posts in this module.

Viewing your posts

In the sidebar menu of the admin panel, select [Content] -> [Default].
