Before jumping into building your first site, this article will help you become a little more familiar with the Pressable control panel and its features.
Account Control Panel
The first view that you come across when logging into your account is the site listing page. From here, you can add new sites by entering a name into the “Site Name” field and clicking the “Add New Site” button. Once you do, your site will begin deploying and an email notification will be sent when it has been completed. This email will contain information on getting logged into your newly created site.
Just under the site creation field, you are presented with a full listing of the sites currently on your account. For each of these sites, you are presented with the site’s creation date, number of assigned domains, and number of users/collaborators.
Clicking on any of these site names will take you into the individual site’s control panel page.
Site Control Panel
The toolbar along the top of the site page provides access to features and settings for individual sites on your account. This is likely where you will spend a majority of your time.
The first page you’ll come across is the site information page, which provides information about your site and is the place where you will add/remove domains. This is also where you can configure your externally hosted email.
