Frequently Asked Questions about Website Creator

WordPress has been the go-to website creator for years. In fact, over 75 million websites use the platform, renowned for its ease-of-use and simple customization. Now, Website Creator makes creating a WordPress website even easier. With a simple drag-and-drop format, even beginners can have a new site up and running within a few hours.

Keep reading below for answers to some of our most frequently asked questions. But first, let’s go over what Website Creator is (and why it’s the best website builder tool on the market):

What is Website Creator?

Website Creator is exactly as the it’s name implies, a website builder that runs on a set of WordPress plugins. It uses Underscores, a popular WordPress starter theme, and comes bundled with Bootstrap 3 to allow for easy styling. So what makes it better than the standard WordPress website builder?

  • Like the standard WordPress website builder, Website Creator is highly extensible and there are virtually no limits to what you can do – but the simple drag-n-drop format makes it even easier to use.
  • An enhanced media library allows you to pull in content from third-party image sites, like Flickr.
  • The Website Creator dashboard is more user-friendly and intuitive (though if you prefer the standard WordPress version, you can default back to that).

Now let’s dive in a little deeper and get into those FAQs!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can I use single-sign-on to login to Website Creator?

A: One of the most frustrating things we have to deal with today is the number of usernames and passwords we have to remember for all of the different things we access on our computer. Logging into your website typically requires its own username and password, but if you’re an InMotion Hosting customer, you can skip that step. We’ve created a solution called ‘Single Sign On’ (SSO) allowing you to immediately access your website account directly through your Account Management Panel (AMP) login.

To use Single Sign On:

  • Launch your internet browser
  • Type in https://www.inmotionhosting.com
  • Click on the option for AMP Login in the top right-hand corner
  • Enter your login information and click the reCAPTCHA box
  • Once you’re in AMP, find the icon labeled Manage My Website in the group of icons labeled with your domain name

Q: How can I change my website’s theme?

A: After you’ve launched your website, you may find that you don’t love the look and want to try something new. No worries! There are hundreds of themes available through Website Creator, and it’s easy to switch things up. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Log into the back-end of your website
  • Hover over Customize and click Change Themes
  • You will see a list of all of the current Active and Staging sites – you can change the status by clicking the Stage or Unstage buttons
  • You will then see a list of installed themes – roll your mouse over the theme you wish to use and click Activate or Stage
  • You can also click Add New Theme to browse other available options

Q: How can I add a new page to my website?

A: Once you have your website up and running, you may find that you need to add more pages eventually. Perhaps you have a new service you want to highlight, or you want to create a promo page for an event. Whatever the reason, Website Creator makes it fast and easy.

  • Log into the back-end of your website
  • Click on the Pages option from the left-hand menu
  • Click on the Add New option
  • A blank page will pop up and you will have to give it a name
