My Sites: Manage WordPress Sites

The addition of the Rock User Interface introduces an updated look, powerful tools, and new features to help better manage any size business. Among these tools and features is the new 'My Sites' tab. From the My Sites tab, you can log into your site dashboard directly, manage users and backups, monitor performance, make changes to website settings, and manipulate updates and plugins. 

Accessing My Sites

Once logged in:
  1. Click on the My Sites tab from the menu on the left-hand side.
  2. This loads the Overview tab. From here, you will see shortcuts to manage your Themes, Plugins, Users, and Updates. Within the 'My Sites' Overview tab, you can also manage:
    • Marketing Center: Review Marketing offers available to you
    • Users: Log in as or manage current users
    • Backups: Add backup solutions or manage existing backups
    • Performance: Manage caching options for your website
    • Security: Scan for integrity, manage free SSL certificates, or add Malware Security
    • Plugins: Allows you to update, enable, or disable Plugins
    • Settings: Manage Update and comment settings, Coming Soon pages, and the associated URL. You can also delete an installation here.
      Note: Use caution when making changes to URL's or deleting websites. Always take a backup before making updates.
