Each site will have its own unique dashboard which we’ll call the Site Dashboard. After logging in, clicking on a site in your dashboard will bring you to this page:
A number of tabs are listed under the site name. The first and default tab when you first navigate to a particular site in the Flywheel app is the Overview tab. Since this is your “home base” for a particular site, let’s go over all the elements on the page.
Just under the Overview tab there is a field for the site’s collaborators. You can add collaborators by clicking the “+” icon in this field or the “+ Add Collaborators” link at the bottom of this section.
Remove existing collaborators by hovering over the ellipses to the right of their name.
Want to learn more about collaborators? You can find more information in our What is a collaborator in Flywheel help doc.
The “WP Admin” button is listed just above the “Domains” box.
Click this button to navigate to the back-end WordPress editor for the site.
When a new site is created, a randomly generated temporary domain (ending in .flywheelsites.com) is assigned to the site. You can use this address to edit or review your site until you’re ready to assign your own domain.
You can add any domains that will be pointing at your site to the domain list by clicking the. “+” symbol in this field. If you need any help on setting up your domain to point at your new Flywheel site, check out our handy help doc on How do I take my site live on Flywheel.
Your site’s IP address is listed at the bottom of the Domains box (you will see a flag for the country the data center lives). You’ll need this address for setting up your domain.
IP addresses are unique for each individual subscription but if you are adding a site to a bulk plan, the IP address will be the same for each site tied to that plan.
Every site created will automatically be enabled with Privacy Mode to prevent the world from seeing your site until it’s ready. When Privacy Mode is on, a username and password will be required to view the site.
These credentials will be found just below the Privacy Mode toggle.
This On/Off toggle will be automatically set to “On” when a new site is created. Turn this on when you don’t want unauthorized users viewing your site. By default, sites are password protected until they’re paid for.
