Homepage promotions enable you to add custom blocks to your publication that link your readers to a post, a feature page, or anywhere else on the web.
To add a new promo section to your publication layout, go to your publication Homepage and settings section > Homepage > create a new section > choose Promo from the drop-down menu.
You can choose to include a section title, image, headline text, button and specify a custom background color. Whichever combination of elements you choose, they will appear as a clickable link to the URL of your choosing.
Uploaded images are displayed at either maximum height of 175px or max. width of 600px. PNG files with a transparent background will work well here.
Hover over an uploaded image to replace it.
You can use as many promo blocks as you like on your homepage.
