Main Dashboard

The main dashboard is your default first stop anytime you log in as an admin. Check the real-time status of your site + key optimizations you can make to improve content performance.


The main dashboard is a great environment to take key actions and track important optimizations, specifically:

  • View site performance snapshot
  • Reshare popular posts
  • Search for posts by title/ keywords
  • Sort posts by DATE CREATED, VIEWS, or SECTIONS
  • Check your optimization report card
  • Reorganize the homepage

Directly access the main dashboard from the the left admin panel OR by typing YourDomain/core/dashboard/overview:


View a performance snapshot
The performance overview shows total content views from the last hour and 24 hours. Stats are compared to the same period from the previous week, rather than previous day -- this allows you to compare data from similar circumstances:


Reshare popular posts
