  2. Click your domain name or sitename at the top. Then, choose View File Manager from the drop-down menu.

I can't get this to work. When I click Edit Site my site opens immediately rather than giving me the optional selections shown in the above answer

After you click the Edit button, then look to the top of the page and click on your domain name. You'll then get the menu shown above.

Where? Once I have clicked on "edit" my web site opens for editing immediately and I don't see my domain name at the top of the page, Do you mean on the URL? If so that doesn't work either. Can you please be more specific as to where I am supposed to see my domain name once the page has opened for editing?

Yes, your domain name/URL. Scroll down and take a look at the image posted by Greetmir8286

When you click on your domain name, it will expose the menu with the option to open the File Manager

This first set of instructions shows how to open File Manager from our original desktop SiteBuilder. The second set of instructions below is for opening File Manager using SiteBuilder Plus (the web based version).

If you are using the desktop version of SiteBuilder, you will click a link on the left side of the window like shown below.



If the File Manager link is not showing in this location, then you may have closed the Sidebar. To reopen the Sidebar click View > SiteBuilder Bar > Show SiteBuilder Bar, and it will be restored.



If this post helps, please give a "Star" and complete this survey to rate me.

Thanks!

Mike
