New Composer Admin Interface Coming Soon!
Finalsite Support

The admin toolbar at the top of the screen will be removed for Composer users in March 2017. The features that are currently accessed via the top bar - that is, the "Composer," "Modules and Settings," "Support" and "Shop" tabs - will relocate to the left-hand navigation bar in Composer.

As part of an ongoing modernization effort, we're making a change to the backend interface that will impact all Composer site administrators.

The admin toolbar at the top of the screen will be removed for Composer users. The features that are currently accessed via the top bar - that is, the "Composer," "Modules and Settings," "Support" and "Shop" tabs - will relocate to the left-hand navigation bar in Composer. The icons for these menus have been present in the Left Nav but inactive since Composer launched, and it's time to put them to work.


The Left Nav bar will now include the Modules Menu, People Menu, and Support Menu, as well as a Log Out button at the bottom. Page Manager tabs can be accessed via "Site Administration" in the Modules Menu and File Manager can be accessed directly from Modules Menu.

Conversion Schools

For schools that have migrated from Page Manager to Composer, you can still access Page Manager by clicking the "Site Administration" link in the Modules Menu.

Composer-only Schools

Composer-only clients can click "Site Administration" in the Modules Menu to open up the the Dashboard, and access Site Administration tools from the dropdown menu.

Page Manager Schools

This change will not impact Page Manager-only sites; they will continue to see the current admin toolbar.


Look for this on your Composer site right around the beginning of March (servers are updated on a rolling basis during a software update, rather than on a fixed schedule).

Here's a video to help outline these changes for you and how to navigate between composer and the older top bar navigation:
