Basics 

Publication name & Publication alias

Rename your publication or determine the publication name in the URL via the publication alias. The publication name is visible on the tab in the browser and for instance in your social media posts. The publication alias is part of the URL. 

Note: when the URL has already been shared we don’t recommend to change the alias. The URL that has been shared will no longer be available. 

Language

The language of the publication can be chosen here. All standard system texts in a publication will be visible in the language that is selected. These are, for instance, the words Pages and Editions after clicking on the hamburger menu. The editor will always be displayed in English. 

Cookie consent

Every publication has cookies, and according to the GDPR regulation, you need to inform your readers about these cookies. You can inform them by using the cookie consent pop-up at the publication settings. When entering the publication, this message will pop-up on the screen. The reader has to accept the cookies in order to open the publication. 

Read more about setting up the Cookie consent

You can style this message when you set the cookie consent to ‘on’. Here you can also add the link to the privacy policy. If you have added any remarketing pixels to the publication, you can give the readers the option to disable them via the cookie settings.

Marketing 

UTM

Using UTM codes in the links to your magazine allows you to determine the sources that generate traffic with extreme precision. This allows you to measure the success of specific social media posts: has your tweet or Facebook post actually resulted in any visitors?

Deny search engine access

If you don't want your publication to show up as a search result in Google, you can click on the switch Deny search engine access at the settings, to prevent Google from indexing the publication. This has to be done before publishing the publication.

If you’ve accidentally published a private publication without denying search engine access, you can still try to remove it from search engine result pages.

IP anonymization in Google Analytics

Remarketing code

Do you want to add tracking or remarketing codes to your publication? Copy-paste the script that your tool provides here. 

GTM

Use Google Tag Manager (GTM) to gather all of your tags in a single container. Fill in the header code of your container here and you’re all set (the footer code isn’t necessary)! Note: please don’t use GTM to insert a Google Analytics code, add it via the Publishing settings instead.

You can hide the Editions button in your navigation bar if you don't want readers to navigate to other publications within its project. You can do this by activating Hide Other Publications

When you activate the search function, a magnifying glass icon will be shown in your navigation bar. This will allow readers to search for specific content in your publication.

Remove the Foleon branding from your navigation bar by de-activating the Foleon branding switch.
