Yay! I’m so glad it’s helpful. Hopefully they improve it so it’s simpler to find things. I like how Patreon shows all the people I subscribe to in a list that’s always on the left.

Have you discovered that if you tap your photo (top right) in the app, the list of people you subscribe to will slide in? Your own publication is at the top of the list, then paid subscriptions in alphabetical order, then non-paid subscriptions, again in alphabetical order to scroll through. Your archive and settings can be accessed at the bottom of the slide.

Thank you for that info, Lenora! I replaced that part of the video so it's not my super complicated way haha.

This is great, I don't know why I didn't use the Contents page more! AND, I pinned your substack page to my browser! Woohoo!

Thank you! I am still getting lost and sometimes I cannot locate even my own page! 😂😂

That’s what prompted me to make this! I was struggling to find one of my own posts and thought, “if I can’t find it, and put the whole thing together, other folks won’t find it either!” 😄

Absolutely. It takes sheer determination to spend enough time to learn how to navigate any site. Any help in finding our ways that is intuitive or familiar helps to retain more people on the site.

Thank you! This is very helpful! I love how you organize your page. I can’t for the life of me figure out how to get my page set up so that the featured post (like your main center post/logo) goes to the middle. I’ve tried to switch all the layouts but no-go. Any advice on how to do that?

Yes! You just pin the post you want to stay front & center. 😄

Thanks Beth! It's weird I still can't get it to go in the middle, but I'll do some more tinkering!
