Getting Started

Intro to LayerSync

Welcome to LayerSync, whether you're creating a new site or are interested in using LayerSync as your CMS platform, you can find out more information about how it works here.

If you choose to work with Fly, you will be introduced to our in house CMS platform LayerSync. LayerSync aims to allow the user to easily edit pages on their site whilst maintaining optimum speed and web performance.

LayerSync pages are made up of pre-defined layers, hence the name. These layers can be easily moved and reordered - a way we like to describe it, is to imagine these layers as if they were a stack of pancakes.


All LayerSync features can be categorised into the following sections:

  • Page Management
  • Layers
  • Publications
  • File Management
  • Data Acquisition
  • Language Versions
  • Search Engine Optimisation
  • Integrations
  • System

In this help section we will take you through each of these sections and the features within them.

These sections are displayed on the left side panel once logged into LayerSync.
