How to Show & Hide Layout Placeholders

Show Layout is a function on your Sitebeat Editor that breaks down your website page into placeholders, thus serves as a helpful guide in showing you where you can drag-and-drop more Features.

Enable the Show Layout function to take a closer look at your website's layout, using the steps below:

  1. Log In to access the Sitebeat dashboard.
  2. Under My Sites, click the Edit Site option of the website that you wish to manage.
  3. Note: If you want to edit a new site, you have to unpublish the current website and make your new site as your primary website.

    Under My Sites, click the [...] Ellipsis Icon on the top-right corner of the website to unpublish the current site. Click Unpublish Site, and then click Yes, Unpublish to confirm.

    Under My Domains, click the [...] Ellipsis Icon of the website that you want to replace as your primary website, then click Replace Primary. In the pop-up window, select the domain of the new website in the New Primary Domain list, then click Replace Primary. You can also click the Domains tab under My Sites to perform the necessary steps mentioned.

    You can now edit the new site that you wish to manage.

  4. On your Site Editor, click on the Show Layout icon at the bottom of the left-side menu to enable this function.
  5. To disable and hide your Layout Placeholders, simply click on the same icon again.
