Making your changes live

Because you are logged into the system, you can see the changes you have made when you look at the website, BUT these changes won’t be visible to the rest of the world.

To see what others see, open a different browser (eg. Internet Explorer) and go to the page you have been editing (do not type /_edit).

You can view your asset’s status from the 'Details' screen. It will be in ‘Safe edit’ mode (Pink) and you need to change it to ‘Live’ (Green).
