Improved Site Builder Navigation

We've made some changes to Site Builder to make it easier to use and see what you're editing.

You'll see

  • Increased focus on the section you're editing (or an arrow if the section isn't currently shown)
  • A new button within each section when you hover over so you can jump immediately to editing that section

You can now dulicate a cetificate you've already designed as a starting point for your next certificate.

Just click the ellipsis menu on any certificate and then "Duplicate" (as shown above).

New Custom Text Variables

To make customizing your site even easier, we've added some of the most commonly asked phrases or terms (like "lesson", "courses", "dashboard", etc) to the items you can change from your settings.
