WebsiteBuilder: Saving and Publishing Your Website

It is a great habit to save any changes you make in the editor. You can save your progress as many times as you like as you go along working on your site. When you publish your site, this allows any saved changes to go live online.

NOTE: We offer two different versions of WebsiteBuilder. Our original implementation of the builder is the Legacy WebsiteBuilder Editor, while WebsiteBuilder Express Editor is the newest interface commonly found in the Foundation dashboard. It is not possible to upgrade a Legacy WebsiteBuilder site to the Express Editor. The site will need to be recreated with the Express Editor. All new WebsiteBuilder installations will be the Express Editor.

Follow the instructions that match your WebsiteBuilder version.
