Introduction to the Control Panel
You may have noticed a new tab in the upper right corner of your Site Manager. That is the Control Panel tab. The Control Panel is a great place to access many options to manage and edit your site’s features and settings.
The options are grouped under 5 sections:
- Manage Website
- Premium Services & Support
- Marketing & Site Promotion
- Generate Revenue
- Membership & Community
If you’re not new to Webs, you’ll already recognize many of the functions listed under “Manage Website.” Here, you can access shortcuts to manage how your pages appear on your navbar, edit the content and design of your site, as well as perform overall settings for your site and add applications.
Premium Services & Support
You’ll notice that the options previously listed under the Premium tab have now been moved to the Premium Services & Support section of the Control Panel. If your site has Premium services such as Web Mail or a domain, you can quickly access those areas from the Premium Services & Support section of your Control Panel.
You can also instantly upgrade your site to Premium from this section!
