Una Social Network Studio (Admin Dashboard) Overview


Now that you have completed the installation of Una and you have your social network site up and running the natural second step is to get familiar with its Admin Dashboard. In Una, the administrative area is called "Studio".

The Studio is where you are going to be configuring, maintaining, developing, and customizing your website. You can manage your Apps, languages, membership levels, and permissions, to name a few. Therefore, knowing how to operate with it hassle-free is quite essential when it comes to effective management.

As you have probably guessed, this is going to be the main focus of our tutorial - we will get an in-depth look at the Studio area essentials to ensure you able to easily navigate through it and get the most of it!


Accessing the Una Studio

To access your Una Studio, you need to include a "/studio" suffix after your domain name, i.e., "yourdomain.com/studio" where "yourdomain.com" stands for your own domain name. Therefore please make sure to replace it.

Upon entering the URL address mentioned above, you are presented with the Studio Login page, which looks as shown in the following screenshot example.
