How to save changes

To save your changes in the builder, click Save.

The website builder does not save changes automatically, so it is important to save your page before exiting.

To save your changes and exit the builder, click the arrow-down icon, and select Save and exit.

To go to your website in a browser, click the link that will appear in the top panel once your page is published.

The link will become available only after your website is published. You can publish a new page in the site settings after saving all your changes in the builder.

In the middle of the top panel, you will see when you have last saved your changes in the builder using the Save button.

SendPulse automatically backs up your published websites every 5, 10, and 15 days. To restore a previous website version, contact SendPulse's customer support.

You can restore your website structure and settings, but your images will require reuploading.
