In short, FolioFusion Live Builder control panel consists of the following options:

You can see your username displayed along with Language Selection option as well as Sign Out button. You can also view all of your created websites from here. All these are self explanatory.


2. Undo & History

FolioFusion stores your recent actions and you can reverse them one by one by accessing Undo button. Click on the drop down and click on the history events listed.



Please note that you have to reverse from top to bottom, means you can't directly go to an intermediate item and reverse from there.


3. Help

Self explanatory. You will be redirected to our support & help portals (this website).


4. Backup

FolioFusion Lets you keep backups of your current website instance. This is to help you restore from a selected backup copy in case if you have made a change that you did not like, or you want to keep versions.



Please note: Backup feature is currently available only for the websites having Commercial License) - This is to prevent abuse of our storage resources. A free user can save unlimited number of copies of their existing website, which works exactly how backups work, but it is manually.


5. Save a Copy

Save a copy of your current website. The system clones the instance and you will be automatically redirected to work on the new copy. This option works same as Backup but you have to manually do it.

 

6. Preview

This option shows your current website on 3 different views such as Desktop, Tablet and Mobile Phone. This way you can examine the responsive layout and make changes accordingly.
