    1. On my dashboard there is NO TAB for Design. There is no tab for Template or Layout either. Is this a design flaw that I can't get around until someone fixes it on the other end? Thanks.

      1. Yeah! Something like that! Are you just author of the site and admin is someone else? If so, you can't see these tabs.

    Common issues where custom domain is involved.

    In BHF, one of the common issues we face is setting up custom domain. We already have a lot of information on how to setup a custom domain. So I am going to go ahead and write on the troubleshooting tips for custom domain.
