Need Help!

I purchased the Super Suite package a little more than a week ago and am having some difficulties getting started. Maybe I am somewhat overwhelmed with all of the extensions, or maybe its because I am close to being blind and am having trouble following the “Getting Started” documentation; there seems to be a lot of little things that have not been updated as the extensions have evolved (like WebAssist having its own Menu item in DW instead of being in the Insert menu like the documentation says). I was hoping someone on this forum would be able to point me in the right direction. Does anyone have any suggestions for the best way to master these extensions (where should I start; should I focus on one extension and then move to another; if so, what order should I take them in)? I used the CSS Sculpter extension to build this page (www.kaetech.net) and would like to use it to create an entire site. Then I would like to use the CMS extension to create a CMS so my client can manage his own content. Any suggestions?
I know this is a very general question, but I would really like to change my approach to mastering these extensions; I believe that they will save me a lot of time and be invaluable as it relates to creating “visually appealing” sites (not an easy task for someone with vision as low as mine).

From this statement, it looks like you are using the getting started guides that are on the individual extension pages, these are the getting started guides for the older versions, from before they where integrated into Design Extender and Data Bridge. You should be using the getting started guides that are on the Design Extender and Data Bridge pages instead.

The older documentation is still relevant, the functions of the extensions have not changed, only the access points.

There really is no one best way to master the super suite extensions except to work with them. Nor is there an order to use them in, it really depends on the project you are doing.

You can use Site Sculptor to create an entire CMS Site from your page design.

Save the design As a template, and then you can create a Site Sculptor Site Preset from the template.

In Site Sculptor, you can select to use the new preset you created, and enable the site to use CMS.

The design Extender getting started guide goes through the steps for creating a template for a CSS Sculptor page, and then using it to create a design preset:
