Partner Center admins can now view and take action on all websites they manage in one centralized view. At a glance, admins can identify websites that require their attention, letting them easily update WordPress versions, plugins, and themes straight from the dashboard.
Why is it important?
Managing and maintaining multiple websites is a painstaking process that takes up a lot of time and effort. Partners have to stay on top of all their clients’ website updates to make sure that they are running smoothly.
This new dashboard makes website maintenance more efficient by allowing admins to see details for all of their sites. This eliminates the manual toil of navigating individual accounts.
When did it release?
The admin dashboard for Websites was released on August 23rd, 2021.
Who can access the dashboard?
Admins with access to all markets are able to view the dashboard. It is not supported for admins limited to individual markets at this time.
What's available on the dashboard?
The dashboard features a number of elements to make managing websites easier.
If there are any updates available, totals will display above the table. This includes the number of plugins, WordPress instances, and themes that are out of date.
For each instance of the Websites product, you'll see the following information:
- Number of plugins that need updating
- Current WordPress version
- Current theme version
- Links to the Websites dashboard and WordPress dashboard
All elements outside of the account's name can be interacted with. They'll take you to the relevant sections to view your website, make updates, or access the various dashboards available.
How do you access the dashboard?
- Log in to Partner Center
- Go to Marketplace > Products > Website
