Platform Release: Layouts, Social Moderation and More!


Hello everyone! We here at PublishThis have been very busy over the past few months with new features for all of you! We have finally passed our testing and quality assurance levels for our latest release, and are very pleased to roll this out the night of July 30th, 2019, between 11:59pm PST to 1:00am PST! We have have updated some of our own processes to make sure everything is backwards compatible, but also allow everyone to update to the latest feature set.

The release includes:

  • Layouts and Layout Builder
  • Social Queue and Moderation
  • A new handlebars code called “linkCode” which can be used with text/summaries to apply tracking codes to links inside. For example:
    {{{#linkCode summary param=”googletrackingcode=thisiscool”}}}
    Now anyone doing newsletters like TheSkimm or others can add tracking directly to the text via their templates, instead of having editors do this.
    You can find all of our templating codes and information here
  • Multiple issues have been fixed for cross browser support, or with login credentials not always staying up to date between bookmarklet and main platform usage


We are very excited for this release as it brings out two major requests by clients. One to improve our html rendering capabilities, and two, to add in more control over social sharing and moderation.

If you have any questions, please reach out to help at and they can answer any questions you may have.

You can learn more about the platform, ask us questions, suggest or up vote new features on our Support site.
