Production & Staging Sites edits our live website so be extra careful with publishing pages.

We also have a staging site where you can safely play around and test things out. Note the site is reset once a week to match what is live on Production so you will lose your content. If you don't want to lose your work, please add your page to Production and save it as a draft or as a password protected page to collaborate with your team and do the modifications you need before pushing it live to the public.

Dashboard & Access

Once you are logged-in, you should see this dashboard. You will probably spend most of your time in "Pages" and then "Homepage" on the left side of the dashboard.
