Navigate Your Site

One of the best features of previewing your site with InMotion Central is the ability to navigate your site. Here are some examples of what you can do while previewing your site.

  • Scroll
  • Click through links
  • Access menus

This means that you can really get a feel for how the visitors will experience your site. I recommend thoroughly testing all the pages and menus to ensure they will display well on all devices. This ensures you provide a better customer experience and increases the chance of visitors returning or making a purchase.

Customize Design

If you want to make changes to how your site looks, the Customize Design button on the top of the page will take you directly to the Customize section (/wp-admin/customize.php) within the Dashboard of your WordPress site. From there you can make changes to the layout, add menus, change the background, or edit the header to name a few.

Edit Content

If you want to change the actual content of your site such as the text or images you can click the Edit Content button toward the top. This will automatically take you to the Pages section of your WordPress Dashboard. From there you can Edit a page, or click the Posts link to access and edit them.
