Sitebeat is an easy-to-use website builder platform. Its drag-and-drop function allows you to build a professional-looking website without any help of a Website Developer or have any background knowledge in codes and scripts.
Once you've purchased a Sitebeat plan, you’ll be able to access the Sitebeat Dashboard, where all your website projects can be managed. From the dashboard, you will need to access the Sitebeat Editor for a specific project to begin or continue building it.
Accessing the Sitebeat Editor
You can access the Sitebeat Editor using the following steps:
- Log In to access the Sitebeat dashboard.
- In the My Sites sectiono, click the EDIT SITE on the website that you wish to manage.
Note: If you haven’t started one yet, click the SELECT TEMPLATE option under My Sites. Browse through the Templates screen, click on a template to preview it, and then click the CREATE THIS SITE button in the upper-right corner to use it.
You will then be routed to the Sitebeat Editor. Continue reading this article to learn all the controls and functions available for you within the Sitebeat Editor.
