WordPress.com makes it easy to manage multiple sites in one place. When you’re logged into your account, you can access and manage any site for which you’re an administrator or user. If you have a WordPress.org site using the Jetpack plugin, you can also manage that from within WordPress.com. Carrie shows you how to switch back and forth between sites within your account.
- [Voiceover] Wordpress.com makes it easy to manage multiple sites in one place. I went ahead and created a second site on my Wordpress.com account, to demonstrate this for you. When I am logged into my account, I immediately notice that this tab now says My Sites, plural. Before, when I only had one site on my account, it said My Site. Right now, I know that what I'm looking at is the site admin for my Essential Training website, because that's what shows up here. Everything you see here, is exactly the same as before, but let me show you how easy it is, to switch to managing another site.
I can just click the Switch Site link, and see a list of any other sites I'm managing, along with a link to add another Wordpress, if I want to. I've only got two sites on my account. The one I've worked with in this course, Essential Training, and the new Wordpress site, Wordpress Rocks. To start managing the Wordpress Rocks site, all I need to do is click on it. And now, I'm in the site admin area for this site. Cool, right? Also, if I go back to Switch Sites, I can see this option to manage all my sites.
I'll click that. This takes me to an overview page, where I can take in stats for all the sites on my account. I can also quickly add blog posts or pages to any of my site, by clicking the corresponding Add button, and then selecting which site the post should go on. I can also click on Blog Posts or Pages, to see a list of all site content, regardless of what status it's in. Lastly, I can jump right in to the theme customizer for any of my sites. I'm telling you, if you happen to run more than one site, you're in for a treat.
Now if that wasn't enough, you can even manage any Wordpress.org sites you own, from the same dashboard. Yep. Any of your Wordpress.org sites, that are connected via Jetpack plugin, are available for you to manage here, in the exact same way.
