When creating a new issue, you may want to create a new publication for it to sit in for example Staff Bulletin.
You can create a new publication by selecting the Add New button next to the Publication drop-down list.
Adding a new publication will prompt you to complete a form that includes the following fields:
- Name *
The title of the publication. For example, Staff Bulletin
- Folder Name *
The string of text that will form part of the issue's URL. It should replicate the Name of your publication but use only letters, numbers and hyphens, and spaces are not permitted. For example, StaffBulletin. To learn more about how this forms part of the link, see this article.
- Publication Style (non-mandatory)
Select a style for the publication. A publication style determines the appearance settings for the publication. If you have selected a template from the Layout Library, this field will be populated with the style that corresponds to your selected Theme. A style can be added/updated later if it hasn’t been created yet.
- Menu (non-mandatory)
Select a menu to be used with the publication. A menu can be added/updated later if it hasn’t been created yet.
- Domain Name (non-mandatory)
By default, all publications will play on the view.pagetiger.com domain. If a custom domain has been registered with your account, you can select it here.
- Analytics *
An analytics setting will specify any configuration for Google Analytics or the Experience API (Tin Can / XAPI). By default this is set to No Analytics, however, there must be a value specified in this field. The analytics setting has no impact on the reporting for your publication.
- Security Rule Set *
Select a security rule to be applied to the publication. A security rule set can be added/updated later if it hasn’t been created yet. By default, the security rule is set to disable search engines.
* indicates a required field
A new publication can be very quick to create - all you need to enter at this stage is the Name and Folder Name. The rest (if needed) can be done at a later date.
