In this lesson, we explore Editor X dashboard and general settings.
It has been the best investment I made in my design journey so far. I would consider myself a novice but I honestly feel like I've gained a genuine professional insight into the process of creating a high-level website.
I'm an early adopter of the KreativePro Masterclass, and I love how well put together it is. Neftali takes you through each step of the process from paper sketches to marketing all with fun visuals & clear instructions!
Why don't we go ahead and get familiar with the editor X dashboard. So the first thing really is to create a site and follow the steps. Let's just go ahead and choose editor X and select start from scratch. Boom. There we go. Say hello to your workspace. We'll take a look at this soon, but first take a look at the top.
Avatar. This opens up a menu. We make access to your account settings. You have your subscriptions or current plan you're on and other stuff like setting up your domains and emails. One thing that editor X does is. Uh, tabs for you to have a quick access point to both your workspace and your dashboard. As you can see every site that we make will have its own dashboard.
For example, if I click on the site menu, we can access the current site dashboard from here. We can see a bird's eye view of this current site status. If it's published the site name and even the thumbnail, it's pretty intuitive. We even have this Wiki, why don't we give this a try let's search for ADI, nice.
It gives you some results without leaving the doctor. This is really handy and useful because this little Wiki also works directly within the workspace. Anyways, as we scroll down, we'll see ideas for you to try out business tools and resources. We'll get into these later lessons. Simply go under. Manage sites, then general settings.
This is where you'll take care of any important global configurations like language roles, permissions e-commerce, payment providers, email notifications, and other advanced stuff like adding custom code, setting up your GDPR and site history. We need to remember this last one because there are times and like any designer knows.
Shit happens. So the version restore button will be your best friend. It's important, you know, it exists and how to get there. All right. To change this project's name, click on the website settings. This thing will show up in your dashboard, and the main menu editor X uses it as a backup name for the SEO titles.
You know, that's the one that appears on the top of the browser. And yes, don't worry. You can set the custom SEO title, but I'll show you how to do that later. Right below. You'll see the free editor X domain. You'll want to make sure we changed that name to, and it's to be at least four characters long once we're ready to go live, we can swap it out with our own domain.
Just below all this, we can manage stuff like the fabric con, which is also part of the browsers tab, upload social cover image for Facebook and Twitter, and even add your Facebook username in order to verify any likes you get. So let's skip this for now, since we haven't published anything. Finally at the very bottom, we have the site history again, thank you, editor X for reminding us about this important feature, but go ahead and click safe and then continue to business information.
It's definitely a good idea to fill this information. If you're a restaurant or a retail business, because it's going to improve. Your search results. It's always good practice to have it ready before you publish the website. Everything else is pretty straightforward. We're adding made attacks to help spiders for all the website.
Identify the currency of the store, the time zone and language. One really cool feature is editor X ability to create custom roles and assign users depending on your type of project, you might have all sorts of roles. For specific reasons. Say for example, you have a magazine and you invite a guest author to draft an article for you.
You can invite them and limit their access to only writing draft posts. Then editors can review those drafts and decide if they should be published or not. There are no limits to what can be. And having that flexibility is a total game changer too. I mentioned you can add your own custom code too. Let's go ahead and jump to the next lesson so we can understand edit or X pricing model and compare some of it's better.
See you there.
