Providing the all-in-one dashboard to your clients on your domain is one of the many features that make us a truly white label solution for your clients’ marketing needs. Currently, there are three ways to accomplish this – by using our domain, by directing your domain to our server and uploading an HTML file to your website.
Both latter options, are reliable but are slightly more technical than most people would prefer and because of this, we are offering a fourth, wonderfully untechnical option – a simple WordPress plugin.
Check out the instructions below for the WordPress plugin as well as the instructions for the other three methods. As a note, you may need the help of your webmaster to add a CNAME record or uploading an HTML file on your website.
Use the quick links below:
Method 1: Use Our Domain
This is the easiest and quickest way to access your domain.
- Log into your dashboard
- Navigate to the White Label > Dashboard Setup
- Personalize your preferred dashboard domain name.
4. Click View Your Dashboard and login using your demo credentials.
Method 2: WordPress Plugin
Our WordPress plugin is the least technical way to deploy your dashboard on your WordPress site. It also enables you to show our portfolio using your URL, a feature that will be helpful when you’re pitching to potential clients. You will need access to your WordPress backend in order to use this method.
Simply follow the steps below:
1. Log in to your dashboard and go to White Label > Dashboard Setup.
2. Down the plugin by clicking Download WP Plugin in the Method 2: WordPress Plugin section.
3. While logged into your WordPress site, click on Plugins to open the Plugins page.
4. Click the Add New button and upload the .zip file downloaded from the dashboard.
5. Click on Settings where you will be able to view and edit your plugin settings.
6. Paste your Plugin Token into this field. You can find it at White Label > Dashboard Setup in the Method 2 section.
7. The Status of your Dashboard will be enabled by default. You will need to enable the Status of your Portfolio by checking the box. After enabling your portfolio, you will be able to determine the URL that points to your portfolio.
