Let me clarify...

Site Sculptor's CMS is a limited version of PowerCMS 2 and does not have these functions:
1. The ability to add new content locations and content areas.
2. The ability to delete content locations and content areas.
3. Multiple user management.

However, the CMS does have the templating functionality that exists in PowerCMS 2 which allows you to create new dynamically generated pages.

The way these template pages work, is that in Site Sculptor you specify a page to be used as a content management template. In the CMS, that page will have an Add option for you to create a new page based on that template. That will insert a new page into the CMS that you can manage the content for.

The difference is, when you visit that page in your browser, instead of you visiting a completely different file, you are visiting the template file with a particular URL parameter that tells it to display the content for that page instead of the template pages content.

If you look at the PowerCMS 2 demo www.powercms-demo.com/, you will see an example of what i am referring to when you look at the Homes pages. Where the 'Homes' page is the template, and this page has an Add option when you hover.

The idea with Site Sculptor's CMS is that it is an end-user focused CMS for clients to manage their site once it is created. Site Sculptor is used to figure out your design, navigation and core pages, and the CMS allows you to maintain your site, and add additional pages when necessary.

To make it even friendlier for the end-user the CMS has some additional options that make it even more flexible.
- Page Optimization option for each page that allows you to specified Page Title, Description and Keywords.
- Direct links to pages. Unlike PowerCMS which does not know where your pages are stored, Site Sculptor created them - so it knows where they are. This will let your client navigate straight to any page from directly within the CMS.

If you need the more robust CMS for your development, you can always upgrade the CMS with a copy of PowerCMS2.
