Here is the new SiteW editor: its form has changed, but its content is still the same. Concretely, the design of our historic editor changes, but it has the same features.

Info stepup
For the moment, it’s the first redesign of our editor. The project will have other phases to enjoy an editor which is even more user-friendly.

Here are our objectives. The interface is:

  • Easier to use

  • More user-friendly

  • More modern

  • Easier to understand

And we did it without changing its features.

So, things are right? Now, we will discover the more important changes for your website management. Let’s go! 👇

The top bar

The first step of the redesign of our editor was to improve the top bar, especially its practicality.

Generally, the new bar has fewer elements which are directly visible. It is easier and more logical than the previous one.

Now the bar at the top of the editor is divided into 2 different sections:

  • In the top right-hand corner: the “future” actions, where you will find buttons for the publication, preview, and upgrade of your website.

  • In the top left-hand corner: the “current” or “last” actions, you will be able to manage responsive design, a toolbox, and the back-to-top button.

  • The SiteW menu (W icon) enables you to access our additional resources, get in touch with us, back to your dashboard or just leave the editor. The guided tour was directly added to this bar for more coherence.

  • The toolbox has no more icons, but beautiful purple buttons which are easier, more understandable and intuitive. Knowing that a feature is enabled will never be easier. You know immediately if the feature is enabled, or you can enable it quickly.

The different tabs

Now you know our brand-new bar, let’s move on to the redesign of the different tabs.

Historically, the tabs were vertical. After a retrospective, this seemed no longer user-friendly or understandable.

Now the tabs are horizontal and displayed on the top of the Pages, Content and Design panels.

The Pages panel

Let’s move on to the different management panels. Let’s start with the Pages panel that enables you to manage your pages, as its name suggests.

You will enjoy a tab which is even more readable and useful.

  • New tip: the search engine of the pages now is always displayed, whether you have 2 or 70 pages.

  • The identification of the background page and the pages has been improved. The background is clearly separated and identified. The pages have a header called “Pages”.

The Content panel

We worked hard to enhance the design of our icons. Now the icons are clearer, easier to read and understand. Just their form has changed, not their content.

💡 The search bar is still available to find your block in just one click.

The Design panel

Let’s discover our latest panel, the panel that enables you to manage and optimize perfectly the design of your website.

  • The “General style” category has been displayed first.

  • The Design tab now lists menus where there are fewer icons so that it is more practical.
