How to get started with your Super dashboard
Click into your site under Sites to access the Site Dashboard or click New Site if you are new to Super and haven’t created a site yet.
If you need any help getting started with building a site, take a look at our “Creating your first site with Super and Notion” guide.
Manual publishing is a paid feature of the Pro Tier on many website builders and platforms. This means that in order to use it, you must upgrade your account to this level and pay the associated fees.
One of the key requirements for using manual publishing is connecting a custom domain to your website. Manual publishing does not function on a super.site domain or other generic subdomains. This means that if you want to take advantage of this feature, you will need to have your own domain name.
Once you have upgraded to the Pro Tier and connected your custom domain, enabling manual publishing is easy. Simply turn on the Manual Publishing toggle in your website builder or platform. With manual publishing enabled, updates to your site will not be published automatically as soon as you make them. Instead, you can save your changes and publish them at a later time, on your own schedule.
In the Settings section, you can change your site name, Notion URL, upload your site favicon and choose your site language. Super uses your site name as the main page title for SEO (changing your site name here will not affect text you input as site title to style your navbar).
This is where you also can change which Notion page is connected to your Super site as the home page. Usually you won’t change this once your site is up and running, but if you need to, this is where you do it.
One of the most notable aspects of Super is its support for RTL (Right-to-Left) languages, such as Arabic and Hebrew. This means that users who speak these languages can use Super seamlessly, without having to worry about text alignment or direction.
A favicon is a small icon that appears in the tab of your browser whilst someone is viewing your site and alongside your site name when someone bookmarks your site. Click Upload image to add a PNG icon for browser tabs.
Manage your site domain
If you want to change your domain name or add a custom one, head to Domains. There you will find the option to change the prefix of your default super.site domain name or add a custom one that you own.
To access the custom domain feature, you will first need a Super subscription. Once you have signed up and have a subscription, follow these steps to connect your custom domain to Super.
You may now purchase a domain at Super!
Manage your site pages in one place
In Pages, you can see, edit, and reorder all site pages, including their hierarchy. Super will automatically detect and add any subpages in Notion to your Super site. This is where you can rename them and change the URL structure.
When you click the three dots on an individual page, you can:
Edit page title and Notion page URL
Add SEO information to optimize your site — add site title, description, upload image for sharing your site on social platforms, and add site keywords related to your site for search engines
Apply custom Head, Body, and CSS code to individual pages (read more about adding custom code here)
Set a password to protect a site page and all its child pages
View your page in Notion
Remove page from your site
If you want to learn more about how Notion pages can be turned into a publish-ready website using Super site builder, take a look at our “Site pages” guide.
If you're looking to create a website that ranks well in search engines, SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is essential.

Customize your site design
In the Design page, you can customize the appearance of your site without any prior coding knowledge. In just a few clicks, you can transform your site to fit your style preferences and be ready to launch it live.
You can change almost all aspects of the site design features:
If you decide to upgrade to the new design options for your site, you will be able to access additional features, but your current color theme will be reset to the default theme. You can always apply new color themes of your interest using the new design options.
Create your own theme to apply to your site using color pickers and sliders to adjust spacing and shapes of callouts and galleries, and everything else!
Choose fonts from a list of optimized Google fonts to be used on your site
Add a custom navbar
One of the most significant advantages of Your Super site's customizable navbar is that it offers a variety of design options right out of the box. You can choose from pre-designed templates, colors, and styles, and easily add your own branding elements such as a logo or a custom font. This makes it easy to create a navbar that matches the look and feel of your site, without having to do any custom coding.
For those who want to take their customization even further, Your Super site offers the option to apply custom CSS using Super CSS Classes. This means that if you have CSS coding knowledge, you can create a truly unique navbar design that perfectly fits your brand's aesthetic. Even if you don't have coding experience, there are many online resources available to learn how to use CSS to style your navbar.
Add a custom footer
Same as with a custom navbar, you can add and design a custom footer using the Footer page. Read our custom footer guide to learn more.
Change site options
With Super you can make basic site customization options in the Options page of the site editor. With a few clicks, you can make your site more accessible for your audience using the features below.
Site languages and RTL support
Super supports most languages, including those that are read right-to-left (RTL), like Arabic, Hebrew, and Persian (Farsi), among others. Having an RTL site language option means your site content will be accessible and easy to read by site visitors worldwide.
Disabling search engine indexing
Disabling search engine indexing will ask search engines like Google or DuckDuckGo not to crawl your site. This is useful if you would not like your site to appear in search results. If you want your site to be found, be sure to enable this setting. This option is only available on the paid plan.
Also make sure you tell Google about your site at Google Search Console.
Enabling database page properties
This option allows you to make database properties visible on your site so they appear as they would in Notion. Database page properties appear at the top of database pages in Notion.
If you have a database page with no content in the body of the page, Super will not make that page clickable (if there is no content, there is nothing to publish). However if that page has database properties, you can make the page clickable by displaying database page properties using this setting.
Notion allows you to create multiple views of your databases so that you can filter, sort or display them the way the data is displayed. This is useful for structuring the information in your databases in more usable ways for your site visitors.
By default, the topmost view (or the first view) in the Notion database is the one that is displayed on your Super site. By enabling this setting, any other database views will also be presented as options for your site visitors.
Enabling site search
Super sites have an option search feature which will display a small search icon on the top right of your site. This gives users the ability to search for pages within your site.
Pick a calendar start day
You can choose whether the calendar database view starts on a Monday or a Sunday.
Apply custom code to your site
For ways to make your site’s design more personalized or to add useful tools like site analytics, head to the Code section. Here you can add custom code across Head, Body, or CSS tabs which will apply code to the entire site.
You can also apply code at the individual page level from the Pages menu of your site.
