Classic and Orion UI Differences

Classic and Orion dashboard

Here are the main UI differences between the Classic and Orion dashboards. With Orion we have achieved a better workflow by reevaluating what our users need to fulfill everyday tasks.

UI differences table

Orion has four different screens:  

  • Overview
  • Websites
  • Clients
  • Add-ons

Overview

All information available in the Classic overview can be found in the Orion Overview screen, and more.

  • Updates widget. It’s divided into 3 sections: Plugins, Themes and WordPress Core updates, so you can have a better look at what needs to be updated.
  • Services widget. Quick access widget in Classic allowed you to access some of the features with one click, while the Orion Services widget shows you summed information at a glance, and gives you the option to seek out more information for each tool.
  • Optimization widget. This widget has been added to Orion only. You can use it to clear spam, post revisions and optimize the database with one click.
  • Comment widget. This allows you to approve or mark comments as spam on your websites.

Like in the Classic, there is a Drag & Drop option in Orion and you are able to move the widgets and arrange them in a way that best fits your workflow.

Websites screen

Orion has a completely separate screen for your websites. By clicking Websites on the left, you will see all websites that are added to your dashboard.

There are two different views available:

  • List view
  • Thumbnail view

List view shows you a list of all websites alongside with their name, connection status and URL, WordPress version, as well as clients and tags that are assigned to the website.

For those that prefer a visual view, there is a thumbnail view that allows you to find the appropriate website quickly.

In each view, hovering over a website will show you four buttons: single website dashboard, one-click login to WP-admin dashboard, backups screen and site settings.

Orion also has a way to easily filter websites.

You can filter the websites by add-ons that are active, status, tags (that you can create and assign to a website), clients, WordPress version and language.

Client Screen

Orion has a separate client’s screen where you can manage all of your clients (add their info, see the expected monthly cost based on the add-ons that are activated on their websites, create a client report, etc.) and add new ones.
