When getting started with your Prezly account, one of the most important steps is to create and set up your Newsroom(s).
Think of a Newsroom as a place where your Stories live once they are published, and also a place you can direct visitors to if they want to read more of you Stories, need to find your contact details, or subscribe to receive future Email Campaigns
How to create a Newsroom
From the Stories page
From the Manage Newsrooms page
Create Newsroom .
Setting up your newsroom name, URL, languages, and logos
When setting up a Newsroom, you'll need to give it a name. The URL will automatically follow the Newsroom's name but will end in
.prezly.com by default. The Newsroom's URL can be customized later on.
❗️Please note that there is a technical limitation when it comes to the length of the link (URL).
newsroom-name-here label can only have a maximum of 63 characters. This is not a limitation of Prezly, but a limitation of how domains work universally.
Wikipedia offers a (very technical) explanation: "Each label may contain from 1 to 63 [characters]" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subdomain).
Newsroom Settings – The Essentials
The newsroom footer displays information from your company/brand, such as a boilerplate (company description), website, social networks, and email subscription form.

Add your contact details to your Newsroom
The contact(s) you added will be listed under the Contact Us section in your newsroom, just above the footer.
