Webmaster Module Help

So you've got a new Webmaster Module...

The first thing you may notice about your website is that at the bottom of each page is a link that says login. Anytime you need to edit or make changes to your site, you can click that link and type in your webmaster password. Once you have logged in this link will change, and offer you various links to edit individual pages, view page hits, and access the webmaster control panel.

Webmaster Control Panel

Your webmaster control panel contains quick links to the 'backside' of each area of your website. By 'backside' we mean areas which allow you to manipulate the appearance and content of your website, but are not seen by your sites visitors. Only you or your authorized webmaster will ever see these pages. The following areas are quick linked through our webmaster control panel..
