Updated website manager: what’s different?

Your new site manager comes with some very handy new things, so to make them work optimally there are also a few things that will change. Here’s a quick overview of the changes ahead, so you’ll feel right at home in your new website builder


Meddlesome middle menus...

To streamline the menus, we’ve removed the middle menu section - its links to the currently-managed website (on the left) and services (on the right) have been reorganized elsewhere.


The sites menu

The sites menu displays the title of the website you’re currently working on, and its drop-down menu lists recent sites you’ve worked on (click one to switch sites), together with links for managing the webmasters of your sites (moved from the Settings menu).

The link to display your current site in a browser is also making a move upwards, to the right of the “sites” menu (via the aptly titled “View site” link).


The services menu 

Site subscription services, like domain names, doombyPLUS, and the full feature-set for your online store are moving to their own menu, in the top menu bar.

Current subscriptions are listed separately from unsubscribed services, and a handy reminder icon is displayed in the menu title whenever a service needs renewing.


The account menu

All links for managing your account are still located within the one menu, and are now joined by the Friends link. Regrouping account services with the Friends features simplifies account management tasks.

You'll also find the log-off or account disconnect link located in the account menu.


File storage

Site files and images added to pages remain accessible via the File storage menu, which has joined the other site content management links in the lower site management menu bar.

Moving the file storage to the lower menu bar means all content, for whatever website you're working on, is now located together in the one place.


With a few well-targeted touch-ups to the look and feel of the manager, and some serious changes under the hood, you’re going to get a whole lot more out of the new site manager.

Enjoy – it’s our way of wishing a happy holiday season to you (see you in 2013 for some really great new stuff!).
