How Do I Switch Sites?

When you click this feature, you are now able to select the site you want to work with. This features is found on the top left of your page when you login into WordPress with your username and password. It is important that you login through WordPress and not one of the websites you are trying to access. When you login through a website, you go directly to that websites dashboard and not to your WordPress account page.
