  • How do I give someone access to edit my Website Builder?

    Our Website Builder's business plan allows you to create a separate log in for someone to edit your website. This is a great tool if you would like a designer or employee to make changes to your site while keeping your personal account information private. To give someone access to edit your Website Builder, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select “My Websites” from the left-side menu bar. Make note of your Site Builder ID # under the "Website" column. Click on the "edit" link next to the website builder you want to use. Click on the "Settings" icon (the one that looks like a gear) on the left-hand tool bar. Next, click on the "Email" tab. Click on the user you'd like to give editing privileges to. If you need to create a new user, follow the instructions to create a personal email address, and then click on the user you just created. At the bottom of the page, check the box under "Website Builder" that says, "Editing capabilities. No access to "Domain" or "Email" sections." Save your settings. Refer back to your site builder number you took note of earlier, and enter it the space that says "YourNumberHere" in the link below: https://sitebuilderYourNumberHere.dynadot.com/edit/edit.html You can give this link to the users you want to edit your site. They will need to use their personal email address and password to log in.

  • How do I set my text to one of my header settings in your Website Builder?

Your text should now match your settings for that header. Click "Save" at the top of the page to save your changes.

  • Can I turn the comments on or off on an individual blog post within your Website Builder?

  • How do I to set the same background color or image for an entire page on my Website Builder?

    Depending on which template you are on and your settings, you may not be able to see very much of your new background color or image. This is because each section has its own background color or image. If you want to set the same background color or image for an entire page, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select “My Websites” from the left-side menu bar. Click on the "edit" link next to the website builder you want to use. Click on the "Design" icon (the one that looks like a paint brush) on the left-hand tool bar. At the top of the style editor, you will see "Background" under the header "Site". Click on "Background" to change the color or to add or change your background image. If you have any other background colors or images selected for other sections of your website, you will only be able to see part of the page background. You can remove these other backgrounds by clicking on "Background" in each section of the style editor and then clicking the "Trash" icon. This will remove the background color or image and make it transparent, so you can see the main background you set. Click "Save" at the top to save your changes. We recommend using an image that is between 1200-1500 pixels for the entire page background. If you are having trouble uploading your background image, this could be why your image will not upload. If you do not want any background for your website, learn how to remove a background or choose no background at all.
