Organizing Your Sites in Managed WordPress Portal

Managed WordPress Portal offers you the ability to organize your sites and find them quickly, create custom tags and disable Varnish caching all from your portal. Let’s take a look at the options you have to organize your sites your way, giving you the flexibility and customization you need to manage your sites efficiently. From your Managed WordPress Portal, you can:

Custom Site Names

Note: Changing the site name will not change the domain name. To change the domain name, please see our article Going Live with Your Site in Managed WordPress Dashboard.
  1. Log into your Managed WordPress Portal.
  2. Click the Manage Site link for the domain you want to change the site name for.
  3. In the Site Name section, delete the current name and replace it with the name you want to use.
  4. Click Update to change the name.
  5. The site name will now display on the Main Page of your Managed WordPress Dashboard under My Sites.

Custom Tagging

You can use custom tags to organize your sites and view them based off common features, customer name or whatever tag you want to help you find a site easily in your dashboard.

  1. To add a tag to a site, click the Manage Site button for the site you’d like to create tags for.
  2. Navigate to the Tags section of your site management page.
  3. Type the tag you want to assign to the site, and click Add Tag.
    Note: You can assign as many tags as you’d like to a site, as well as use the same tag for multiple sites.
  4. Now, when you go to your dashboard home, the tags will show at the top of the page.
  5. To show your sites by tag, click on one or more tag and the sites with those tags will populate below.

Delete a Tag

  1. To delete a tag you are no longer using, click Manage Site for the site containing the tag.
  2. In the Tags section of the site manager, hold your mouse over the tag, an X will appear, click the tag to delete.
  3. A pop-up will appear to confirm that you want to delete the tag.
  4. Once confirmed, the tag will no longer show in the Tags section of your site.

List and Grid View

While in your current dashboard session, you have the option to organize your sites by either list or grid view. This allows you the ability to view the sites in your dashboard your own way.

Note: The view you choose is by session only, Managed WordPress Portal automatically reverts back to list view if you close your browser session and open a new one.
  1. Managed WordPress Portal automatically shows a list view of your sites.
  2. Click the squares next to the site search section to change the view to a grid view.

Enable and Disable Varnish

Varnish Cache is a powerful open source HTTP engine/reverse HTTP proxy that can speed up a website by up to 1000 percent by caching (or storing) a copy of a webpage the first time a user visits. Once the site is cached, all future requests for the site will be served by Varnish. Varnish is automatically enabled on all your Managed WordPress websites when they are created, disabling it is a quick process that takes the click of a button.

  1. Click on Manage Site for the site you want to disable Varnish for.
  2. From the site management page, scroll down to the Advanced Settings section at the bottom of the page.
  3. Click the button next to Varnish Cache to disable.
  4. Confirm that you want to disable in the pop-up.
  5. Varnish Cache is now disabled.
