Site settings

Site settings contain the central settings for the website you are on. Here, if you have a higher level of permissions, you can, among other things, make security settings, set appearance and website addresses.

You can access the website settings from all pages in the structure, assuming that you have the appropriate permission.

View of the menu under Edit where you see Site settings.

When you open the Site settings dialogue box, the website will be locked for editing by other users. This means that only one user at a time can make site settings.

At the top of the dialogue box you can find important information about the page you are on. For example, the Blue Ribbon shows if the website is locked for editing, and if your change needs to be published to get through for the visitor.
