You can easily customise your newsroom, and make it compliant with your brand or your clients brand. With a few clicks, you can upload a logo, select a different font type, and add different colors to your newsrooms.
Updating logo, fonts and colors
You need to first access your newsroom Settings page to customise the look and feel.
Access your newsroom settings page, by clicking on Stories > Selecting the Newsroom you want to customise > Click on the Newsroom Settings tab and Look and Feel.
Uploading your logo
The best way is to save the image of your logo from your website. By doing that it will have the same size, but it is also possible to add different size logos on your newsroom.
In the look and feel page, you can click on Upload logo, and Prezly will add your logo to your newsroom.
You can add three different logo types to your newsroom:
- Newsroom Logo;
- Square Logo;
- Newsroom Icon;
Customising the newsroom font
Select a font and font colors that conforms to your corporate website. If you are on an Expert or Enterprise plan, you can import your own font using the css editor.
Adjust your newsroom colors
You might refer to your brand guideline to find these colors in hexadecimal values.
💡An easier way is to pick the colors straight from your website. Below are a list of helpful tools:
- Color Grabber
- Digital Color Meter (pre-installed tool on OS X)
- List of downloadable apps for Windows
Alternatively, you can use a custom CSS skin
💡CSS/JS is available only on Expert and Enterprise plans

Choose the Block Placement for your stories
There are 3 block placements you can choose
- Plain block placement
- Grid block placement
- Cascade block placement
Plain block placement
This option is best for text heavy newsrooms that lack images, as the images are less emphasised.
Grid block placement
This layout will make all your story previews of the same height. The main images of your story will be automatically cropped to accommodate to the height (so it's recommended to use a landscape-oriented image as your main image).
Cascade block placement
This layout has a more free-flowing style, like a Pinterest board. The story previews will not be fixed in height, so you can use any image dimensions for your main images.
However, it is still not recommended to upload very tall main images, as it can compromise the balance in your overview.
Choose the Block Background
There are 3 main options for the Block Background
- Block without background
- Block with background
- Block with background and boarder
Block without background
There will be no background for the blocks, i.e. they will use the general background that you've chosen for the whole newsroom.
Block with background
You can specify a color for the blocks (e.g. white) that is separate from the general background color (e.g. grey) of your newsroom.
Block with background and boarder
Other than the block background color (e.g. white), you can also add a boarder (e.g. dark grey) around each block.
If you have chosen to use a block with background or boarder, you can customise the colors under the Block colors menu at the bottom.
