The New Backend

Written by Shannon Gonzalez - For Riki & Melissa Braswell, of L&M Wholesale

Welcome to the new backend of your new website. Things will look a little different but with time you’ll be a pro. One of the most frustrating parts of running a website is the question of “how do I?” and “where the heck is the..?” Here I hope to answer most of those questions.

Back Office Basics – How to find your stuff

Back Office Log in

Your “back office” is now called WP-Admin. The link to log in is mumsupplies.com/wp-admin

Your DashBoard

When you log in you will see the left tabs just like prestashop.

The tabs on the side will sometimes change when a plugin (module) is installed or uninstalled. Here’s the tabs that matter most and what they mean. 

Comments: These are comments on posts and reviews on products. The site will not allow any reviews or comments to post to the site without admin approval. This stops bad reviews, and unwelcome comments. This only applies to comments made on this website, it will not show comments made elsewhere like google reviews, facebook reviews etc. 

Home

Updates: This is where you can bulk update both plugins (modules) and themes.

Posts: Think of posts like news articles. They rank high in google, they are dated and considered old or “archived” after a post is about 6 months old. These are good for writing about store news, upcoming events, “how to make a …” videos or articles. Note: New posts will stack over the top of the last post. Posts will go in order of newest to oldest. The old ones won’t erase, but the new ones will now show before any older.

Media: These are where you will find your photos/images, video, audio.

Pages: Pages are set areas that don’t move or get archived. These are usually the about me page, contact page, shop page, policy pages. New pages do not stack over old but are added and are equal. Use pages for all important and permanent information.

Comments: These are comments on posts and reviews on products. The site will not allow any reviews or comments to post to the site without admin approval. This stops bad reviews, and unwelcome comments. This only applies to comments made on this website, it will not show comments made elsewhere like google reviews, facebook reviews etc.
