Live Sites

Live sites are your published Treepl CMS instances that have been activated, have commenced a billing subscription and/or have a custom domain name assigned to them.

Live Sites

On the 'Live Sites' page of your Treepl Portal you'll see a table of all your activated sites along with various information and actions for those sites.

You can filter the list of sites via the ‘Search’ bar above the table by typing keyword/s matching the site name (shown in the first column of the table).

An excel file of your live sites can also be exported via the “Export All Site Details” button at the top of the page.

A description of the information and actions presented in the live sites table is as follows:

Option
Description
Site
Your site's descriptive name.
URL
The URL used to access your live site (usually your primary custom domain assigned to the site).
Status
A description of the instance's operational status (eg: 'Running').
2FA
Displays whether Two-Factor Authentication is enabled or disabled. See 2FA documentation here for more info.
Admin
Navigate to the site's admin.
Date Created
Displays the instance creation date (as a Trial Site).
Date Activated
Displays the instance activation date (when it was made 'live').
Expires On
Displays the next expiry/renewal date based on the site's billing subscription.
Plan
Displays the instance CMS plan.
Actions
Copy Site: Create an complete copy of the instance (into Trial Site mode).
Edit Site: Access the instance settings.
(to delete a site, please submit a support ticket)

Editing a Live Site

From the Live Sites list, clicking the pencil () icon for a site instance will provide further configuration options.

Settings

Under the ‘Settings’ tab, you’ll see the same settings as when setting up the Trial Site initially.

Here you’ll be able to edit the site's Name, CMS Plan, Time Zone and 2FA settings. Other settings are locked and cannot be changed or require Treepl CMS support to change on your request.

You can also select whether or not you recieve email notifications for this site's subscription renewal events.

FTP

Provides the general FTP configuration details for the site instance.

Further details regarding FTP settings can be found here.

Extensions

All available extensions for the site instance will be listed here under the heading ‘Available Extensions’, where they can be installed or further information about the extension be reviewed.

Any installed extensions will be listed separately under the heading ‘Installed Extensions’, where their settings (if applicable) can be configured or the extension uninstalled (via the trash can () icon)

Domains

Assigned domain names will be listed here for the site instance, such as your custom domain name assigned during the activation process.

By default, this initial domain will be marked as the primary domain (indicated by the blue tick).

Additional domains can be added via the “+ Add new domain” button below the list of domains.

Clicking on the 3 dots () icon to the right of any additional domain allows you to mark that domain as the primary domain or to delete the domain.

When adding additional domains, you’ll go through a similar process to the activation steps (adding the provided DNS records and authorising the domain for use with Treepl CMS).

Further domain configurations can be made via the site’s admin and are detailed here.

Domain Redirects

Listed here are any configured domain-level redirects along with their status and the ability to add, edit and remove redirects.

These redirects are internal, domain-level redirects, not to be confused with site page-level redirects (URL redirects). Therefore, you can only redirect currently assigned domains for this site to other currently assigned domains (at the domain or subdomain level, not page level) and not to any external domains.

For example, redirecting:

yourdomain.com –> www.yourdomain.com
or
yoursecondarydomain.com –> yourprimarydomain.com

When applying a Domain Redirect the site instance will need to restart in order to apply the changes. The site will be unavailable for a few minutes after the restart.

Email Accounts

Here you’ll find controls to manage existing email accounts, create new accounts or set up new email hosting altogether.

Starting New Hosted Email Service

To start a new hosted email service (when none is currently set up), click the “Get Started” button to begin the process.

Select the primary domain you’ll be using for email from the dropdown list available (you’ll be able to add domain aliases later).

Clicking “Save” will provision the email service for that domain.

Email Domain Alias

Clicking the “+ Add domain alias” link under the primary domain listed for hosted email, you’re able to add additional domains that will be used as email domain aliases. That is, other domains that will also be mapped to ALL other email address you create here.

Once added, you’ll need to ensure MX and SPF records are in place as per this article.

Domain aliases create additional email addresses for ALL email users, although they don’t create additional email inboxes or count towards your site plan’s email user limit. They simply allow secondary domain/s to be used to deliver email messages to all existing email user’s inboxes (as an alias address).

Adding Email Addresses

Clicking the “Add New Email” button under the ‘Email Accounts’ heading allows you to set up new email users/inboxes for your domain/s, within the email limit of your site plan (shown in this sections heading, ie: ‘Email Accounts (0/3)’ indicates zero users added out of 3 available).

Upon creating a new email address, you’ll be prompted to enter the username portion of the address (preceding the ‘@yourdomainname.com’) and to set and confirm an account password.

Managing Email Accounts

Once you have email addresses added to your Treepl hosted email service you’ll be able to manage most aspects of the user accounts.

At a glance, you’ll see a list of existing addresses along with the storage quota used.

Clicking the 3 dots () context menu at the far right of the user address, allows you to reset the email account password for that address or delete the email account completely - removing that users inbox and all emails stored online for that address.

Expanding the email address listing, via the arrow icon on the far left, reveals the “+ Add email alias” link where you can create alternative email names that can be used to deliver email messages to this users inbox. Email aliases don’t create additional email inboxes or count towards your site plan’s email user limit.

Ensure your DNS records are in place for all domains used for Treepl hosted email, particularly for MX and SPF records, as per this article.
