    I would like to know how to re-design and improve an existing web site whilst still using the “old” site and keeping the new design hidden until it is complete.

    Also I would like to know how to change the web page from .moonfruit.com to another URL which is already registered and owned by us.

      Hi Peter,

      I can see you are on one of our standard accounts, which means you can host up to 5 websites. If you are looking to have a redesign you can log directly in to moonfruit.com, then click on ‘Add a site’ from your dashboard – this will allow you to create a new site from scratch using an alternative template.

      Once you are happy with the new design we can help you swap over the url of your site so your users will be directed to the new one.

      With regard to having a personalised domain, you can register a domain through your domains dashboard at:

      * http://www.moonfruit.com/my-domains

      Feel free to raise a support ticket if you need more information.

      Cheers,

      Steven

      Hi Gail,

      These options are not built in but if you have a package that supports multiple sites then you can copy a site from the admin menu and translate the copy. You can then link the two sites together.

      Cheers,

      Steven

    How do you edit the text on a menu. I’m using one of templates and not matter what mode I’m in it doesn’t let me edit the text. Can you point me in the right direction?

      Hello Ian,
      Click on the menu (it should take you to the page master) and use the pop out ‘editor’ box, go to the ‘setup’ tab and ‘organise pages’ to have a play around with your menus.
