Sections are separate newsletters or podcasts that are managed within your main publication. In this guide, we walk you through how to add and edit sections to your Substack.
“ Your publication homepage will display a feed of all posts, including those published to specific sections. ”
Can you give the option to hide section posts from the main homepage and just keep it within the section?
How do we add a button at the bottom of a post that allows readers to sign up for only that section. Let's say I'm writing about Southern Toads and Existential Crises, I may not want to cross the streams, so to speak. Any way to do this by creating specific invites for only certain sections? I thought that was the whole point.
I use sections to have a bilingual Substack on my publication https://www.upgradespace.io It would be great, if I could a) have the section displayed as a section in the header, but b) have not all the German versions of the article in my main (English) Substack publication. Questions: a) is this possible, b) if not, could you make it possible? Thanks and kind regards, Thomas
Can each section have a unique paid subscription? I am thinking of moving my newsletters... Any help would be awesome.
I'm desperate to work out how to add subscribers to a single section only – anyone know how to do this? Thanks.
I see there is an RSS feed associated with the publication (https://domain.substack.com/feed).
I don't see however how to filter each post according to its Section, the RSS feed doesn't seem to contain any metadata to achieve this.
Could you please consider including this? It's important to be able to separate Sections in certain scenarios.
(Another option would be to accept Tags on the Posts and pass that as metadata too though Tags are not currently supported in Posts, only the main Publication)
How about adding a Key Words Section so readers can find all articles on one topic?
It would act like a Table of Contents and help discover an article they already read. Right now, it's time consuming to find one specific article.
Prior to publishing, in the Section with the checkbox for Twitter, add key word Categories. Each new publication would also post on the main page as the newest article.
Then the landing page could still display the current and most popular articles, and also contain the Categories on a side margin.
This way, we can see our own topics and realize our own volume. For example, I could could probably add "The Rebel Patient on Twitter" and "The Rebel Patient Takes Action" Newsletters. But I can't easily categorize my articles.
The system could even prompt me to consider a new Newsletter after I have 50 articles in one "section".
I don't need, nor do my readers necessarily want to receive multiple emails. Adding Sections would be much simpler.
Thank you for considering my input.
I want to import subscribers to a specific section of my Substack account.
Any help on how to do this?
Hi! I'm trying to understand this. The system seems to indicate that I can make this a separate newsletter WITHIN my newsletter, but I'd love for that to be a separate mailing list. I don't understand where they'd sign up for this and if there's a separate administration section with stats and such.
Can you also include an automatic 'related stories' section in every newsletter that is mailed out to the subscribers?
Suppose, if some subscribers want to subscribe to only a section of the publication and not the whole publication, how to enable that and adjust the pricing? For e.g, if I have two sections in my publication, and together they cost $7. But if someone wants to subscribe to one section at a time, they pay $5 for one section instead of $7 for the whole publication. Can I do that?
Hi, I'm having a problem in adding existing posts to new sections. I've followed the suggestions above but when I press 'edit post' I don't receive a drop down menu. Any advice?
I have created a new Section page, but when I go to an existing article I previously created and click Edit I do NOT see a dropdown saying I can add the article to my new section. I have watched the video suggested by Rodney but that does not help. Please tell me how to add content to my new section page. Thanks
@Substack team, I have a question on this: "Your subscribers can also opt in or out of receiving emails for each section on their account page".
If I create a newsletter section called "New" and I check "Sign up new subscribers by default" and "Copy your email list", how can I user sign up only to the "New" section?
As far as I can understand, the user can only do it if he opts out for the section at "https://yourdomain.substack.com/account", and then opts in again from the same page.
A great feature would be also readers having the ability & flexibility to buy sections individually as some readers might want just 1 section or a few out of 3-5 that writers have ... so section(s) pricing option besides charging for the publication overall. Thank you!
I just added a new page section. According to your online section guide, I should now be able to go back to previously published posts, go into edit mode, and have these old posts show up in this new section. I see no drop-down menu to so this.
