Create a backup/snapshot of your website

Pipeline ROI Websites allow you to save a copy of how your site looks and restore the Website to that stage at a later date. If you are unsure of how you will like some changes being made to your site, save a copy of it, do the changes and if you don't like them you can revert back to exactly how the site looked before. The steps below outline how to save a snapshot of your Website.

Depending on the type of restore point you want to create, Snapshot offers two choices: Quick and Advanced.

Show me the Quick Snapshot steps.

Show me the Advanced Snapshot steps.

 

Quick Snapshots

Using "basic mode" you can create Snapshots containing every aspect of your current site theme OR save copies of all of the pages on your site. To create a new Website Quick Snapshot restore point...

Step 1: From your Website backend, click on Website in the top navigation and then SnapShot below that.

 


Step 2: Mark the Quick Mode option.

 


Step 3: Type a name for your restore point into the Name This Snapshot box.


Step 4: Check each of the items you want to include in the backup or click the top check box to select all items in each category. With Quick Mode, there are only two options: backing up everything about the visual appearance of your site and backing up all your site's content.


Step 5: Lastly, click Save Snapshot.

 

 

Advanced Snapshots

Advanced Snapshots give you the freedom to choose what you want to back up and what you want to restore. For instance, you might want to back up your theme choice, colors, and header, but leave out the intro and site sounds. Since many of the items you can back up depend on one another to completely compose the design of your site, you may experience adverse effects if you back up or restore only a portion of your theme or content.

For best results, use Advanced Mode to back up every aspect of your site. Then, when you restore, you can select the few items you need to recover instead of restoring everything about your site.

To create a new Advanced Website Snapshot restore point...

Step 1: From your Website backend, click on Website in the top navigation and then SnapShot below that.

 


Step 2: Mark the Advanced Mode option.

 


Step 3: Type a name for your restore point into the Name This Snapshot box.


Step 4: Mark each of the items (explanation of each at end of document) you wish to include in your backup. With Advanced Mode, you can check each individual item you want to back up. 


Step 5: Lastly, click Save Snapshot to save your Website Snapshot.

 

 

Below is an explanation of each option you can back up in the Advanced Snapshot mode.
