Frequently Asked Questions

Can I trial Spinal first?

After you create an account, you can set up Spinal: connect with GitHub, add your first content type and create or edit content. There is a limit of 25 items. You can then choose to upgrade to Personal (one-time payment) or to the Content Marketing Team plan with the 15-day free trial.

Do I need to add my credit card to start the trial?


Is there an annual plan?

Yes, with the annual plan you get two months for free and a written thank-you note from your accountant.

Why is there a one-time payment for the Personal plan?

Historically Spinal has had a free Personal plan. It is used by a lot of people. In order to keep it around, and not let it destroy the business, the one-time payment was introduced to recoup some of the costs.

What is a content type?

With static site generators, different content like blog, documentation, etc. are usually stored in separate folders (eg. src/posts). This is called a content type in Spinal.

What is a team member?

A team member in Spinal is one person who writes, edits or does QA. When you upgrade to the Content Marketing Team plan, you can invite unlimited team members.

What parts of my site can I edit with Spinal?

Spinal focusses on the marketing content of your site, like blog, documentation and maybe your changelog. Anything on your site that’s based on a markdown file can be created and edited with Spinal.

Do you offer discounts for nonprofits or OSS?

There’s something even better! If you are a nonprofit or run a open-source project, you might be eligible to use Spinal for free! The only request? Add a link to Spinal prominently on your site. Get in touch for all requirements.
