Here's how you find the file manger:

  1. Click on the Websites Manager in the left navigation menu. Then, click Edit Site.




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

It won't let me delete images from my website files. I would like to clear out any old images so we can put in replacement images -- it wont let us publish until we delete some old images in our images file.

Lilette2513, there is in Sitebuilder Plus. Please read my responses before posting again. You must be using Websitebuilder, but since I do not know what site I can not tell you for sure. If you are in Websitebuilder it will cause confusion if you keep calling it Sitebuilder Plus. They are 2 entirely different programs.

Use the import button, and make sure to publish the file afterward.

Is it possible to upload a website that I have written myself. I did not use the site builder. There is a Member page in there I would like to password protect as well.

KARLA0918, you can use the file manager. You must create any sub folders and upload those files separately. Once uploaded, you must still publish from Sitebuilder to put them live.

When you go in to edit your website, in the upper right hand corner is the domain name with a drop down menu.  Click on the drop down menu and select file manager.

When using the Sitebuilder Plus, there is No domain name in the right corner. There may have been on older versions but currently the domain name is no longer shown anywhere on the page. This has made the File Manager page inaccessible. Does anyone have a current solution to access the file manager on Sie Builder Pluse cloud based edition??

FILE MANAGER MAINTENANCE:
Open your file manager. Select the url on your page editor > select file manage from the drop down menu. Locate unneeded files > select/highlight and delete. You can use your delete key or the garbage can icon at the top of the page.

In Sitebuilder Plus the domain is there if there is a domain associated to the site. If not, you will see the sitename+.homestead.com.

ok, I see the screenshot.
Apparently we were led to believe that the online cloud edition of SiteBuilder descktop that we were using for many years, was called SiteBuilder Plus. We are definitely using Homestead's cloud based editor, but in the left corner it says WebsiteBuilder. So is SiteBuilder Plus Cloud-based? and if so, how is it accessed?

Sitebuilder Plus is cloud based as is Websitebuilder. New sites are Websitebuilder and can only be accessed by Websitebuilder. I can convert a site to use Sitebuilder Plus instead, but you would lose any site you built in Websitebuilder and have to start over completely.

Well, other than the few issues described, the Homestead WebsiteBuilder certainly provides a much cleaner and more professional final product with about the same difficulty level. And we can still use Sitebuilder for other domains.
If we can answer the CLOUDFLARE issue on whether adding the TXT DNS file there would do the job...that would be wonderful. Please let us know your thoughts.
And Thank you for the good support.

Use the file manager to create a folder and then you can move files to that folder.

Use the import option and it uploads to the root. You might try our new Websitebuilder which has drop downs built in

The answers above do not apply to the New Homestead WebsiteBuilder. How can I get to my files in this builder?
My domain does not appear at the top when I click on "edit site."

There is no file manager in the new builder. You can view any photos you have uploaded by going to add a new image, and you can see any files you have uploaded by going to add a new file.
