Where to find your Settings

How to adjust your General Settings

General Settings

In your General Settings you will find options to set:

  • Automatically Refresh Website Data on Login

Check the box here if you want your sites to auto-refresh on login. This means that you will not have to click the Sync Icon to refresh your website data when you log into your ManageWP Dashboard.

Upon login you can choose what view your ManageWP account will load on. There are three options: Thumbnail view, List view, Dashboard view.

How to optimize your Advanced Settings

Advanced Settings 2

In your Advanced Settings you are able to optimize:

  • Max Parallel Requests

Set the maximum number of parallel requests per server. More requests usually mean a faster syncing time, but some sites may not load if the server can not handle that many connection (sites will appear in red).

  • Post Revisions

Here you can select the amount of Post Revisions you wish to keep per each post when performing the Clean Revisions action. The most recent post revision (depending on the number you choose to keep) will not be displayed nor cleaned inside the Optimization Widget.

How to setup your Security Settings

Two Factor Auth Settings

Here you are able to set up:

  • Two Factor Authentication

You can increase the security of your websites by adding two-factor authentication to your ManageWP login process. If you’ve enabled this option, you will be required to input a verification code (which will be sent to you via SMS and/or email), in addition to entering your password. This prevents any would-be hackers from gaining access to your site through means of brute force attacks (or simply guessing your password).

Furthermore, if you receive an email or SMS with a verification code and you didn’t try to log into your ManageWP Dashboard, you’ll know that someone else has attempted to do so.

N.B. Choose whether you want to receive your verification via email or both.

When you have adjusted the settings click Save Changes.
