Understanding the Backend
The Dashboard and Banners
When you first log into the backend it will automatically take you to the Dashboard. This is an overview of the health of your website. You are able to add and remove widgets to see different overviews of data as you please. Additionally – you will see that at the top there are a few banners that instruct you of important updates but not to worry here, CarbonWeb checks in on sites each week to ensure they are updated properly.
Backend Navigation: Side-Menu and Header
At the top of the page there is a slim header that allows you to get back and froth between the live site and the admin tools. As you progress through understanding wordpress you will notice that this header will have more functionality.
On the left hand side of the screen you will se the menu. This is your primary way to move around the backend of your site. This will allow you to jump between your pages, blogs, products, media library and much more.
