If you are learning to build a site with Super and Notion, a perfect place to start is by creating a home page and adding subpages.
Creating a home page
The homepage is the first thing people will see on your website. It tells online visitors what your site is all about and gives the perfect opportunity for you to introduce yourself, your idea, service, or project. You can use it as a landing page for a one-page site or populate it with multiple pages.
Creating your first homepage is easy:
- Create a page in Notion. If you need help with that, follow the steps in the Notion getting started guide
- Add content using Notion blocks, like text, quote, media, callout blocks, and others. See the complete list of compatible Notion blocks here. You can always come back to add more or change the current content later
- Make your site publicly available by copying the Notion Share to web link on the top right of your Notion page
- Connect your new site in Super by using the new site button, enter a name for your site, and paste your Notion Share URL from the Share menu of your Notion page. See also these steps for more details.
- That's it; you made your website! Visitors who land on your site will see the published homepage. If you want a single-page site, you can keep adding and customizing content on the same page or add subpages for a multi-page site (see steps below)
There are a few benefits of adding subpages to your site. It is easier for a multi-page site to be SEO-friendly because you can spread content over several pages. Site visitors can also easily access information on multi-page sites, and you can scale your content fast.
All your new subpages will use the same design features and templates as your homepage. The main thing is to get started with making the site yours. Even if your page doesn't have much content yet — it's still one step closer to getting your idea online.
There are two ways to add pages to your site:
Automatically adding pages to your site
If your site calls for more pages, adding subpages follows a similar process as above:
- Go to the Pages section of your Site Dashboard and make sure that Sync URLs is enabled
- In Notion, create another page underneath the homepage (a subpage)
- Give the page a title and add content to the page
- Visit your site or dashboard and refresh the parent page to initiate the automatic background page sync which will detect the new page and add it to your site.
Manually adding pages to your site
- Create another page underneath the homepage in Notion
- Add content to your page
- Copy the Share URL of the Notion page from the Share menu in Notion
- Head to Pages in your Super site dashboard, select Add new page, paste your link and click Create page
Add navigation links
Make sure people can navigate to your page by using one of the two (or both) options, link some site text or media to the subpage, or add your subpage to the navbar or footer by following the steps in our navbar and footer guides. Learn how to organize your site using pages
