Creating a new publication
New publications can be created on the dashboard. When on the dashboard, click on + Create Publication. This will prompt you with a pop-up where you can fill out additional information.
Selecting a project, or creating a new one
When creating a publication, the first step is to select the project (previously known as publication groups) this publication will be a part of. To choose a project, click on the drop-down menu under Project and select the project you want to use.
If you want to store a publication in a new project, you can create a new project from the drop-down menu by clicking on Add project. Alternatively, you can also create a new project from the dashboard itself.
If you want to move an existing publication from one project to another, you can do that via a publication’s publishing settings.

Naming a publication
After you’ve picked a project, the next step is to name your publication. A publication’s name will be displayed on your dashboard, but will also be visible in browsers and when it’s shared on social media.
Next to that, the publication name will also appear in the URL of your publication (also called the publication alias). The alias can be changed at any time via a publication’s settings.
Choosing a publication type
The final step is to choose a publication type. This info helps us better understand how customers use our platform. Your choice won’t affect the features available.
After you finished these steps, click on Create. This will take you to our editor where you’ll start creating this publication’s first page. Read more about creating your first page in our article: Creating your first page.
