This article shows you how to get the most out of The Hub and how to use it to its full potential. As you’ll see, there’s a TON you can do.
We’ll be covering how to:
- Manage Your Plugins & Themes
- Keep Tabs on Your Sites’ Security
- Set Your Site Up for Maximum Performance
- View Your Site’s Insights (in detail)
- Easily Manage Your SEO
- Customize White Label Reports

All of these features can be accessed from the tabs above The Hub Overview screen.
You’ll need to have your site connected to The Hub first. If you need help with this, please see how to add a site here.
Once you have your sites connected, you can enable the SSO (Single Sign-On). This is so you can securely access your sites from The Hub without having to sign in separately for each one.
Check out this quick video or documentation to see how easy it is to set up SSO.
Now that we have the foundation for getting started with The Hub set, let’s go through each of these sections:
1. Manage Your Plugins & Themes
All your site’s plugins and themes can be managed, viewed, updated, activated & deactivated, deleted, and starred as a favorite from the Plugins & Themes tab.
Plus, you can add plugins & themes and keep everything updated automatically with Automate’s help. Automate is our automatic update WordPress manager.
From here, see all of the active and inactive plugins you have from the Plugins tab. They’re arranged by Core, Active, and Inactive plugins. It also shows what version of each plugin you currently have.
Every plugin you have is listed in this area.
You can bulk activate, deactivate, mark as a favorite, or delete.
