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.
- Managed WordPress Portal automatically shows a list view of your sites.
- 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.
- Click on Manage Site for the site you want to disable Varnish for.
- From the site management page, scroll down to the Advanced Settings section at the bottom of the page.
- Click the button next to Varnish Cache to disable.
- Confirm that you want to disable in the pop-up.
- Varnish Cache is now disabled.
