Hi SubPagers, In this release, We are pleased to support a much requested feature from you all, i.e. the ability to publish pages to sub-folder or sub-directory of your website.
However we understand sub-domains are more suitable for entire page portals than individual pages like policies or faq. Considering this, today's release allows you to publish pages to sub-directory of your website in addition to sub-domain support.
Which means instead of privacy.yourwebsite.com, you can now have yourwebsite.com/privacy. This support is provided for all pages including helpcenter, blog, changelog...
But please note, publishing to sub-directory requires changes to your server configuration and it is best done by a developer with back-end knowledge or a server administrator.
To guide you in this setup, we have provided comprehensive documentation for popular server setups like Nginx, Apache, CloudFront, CloudFlare, Next.js, Netlify...
If we missed any server or you require help regarding this, do not hesitate to contact us.
SubPage app provides multiple layout options for each subpage whether it is helpcenter, faq, blog, roadmap or any other page that it supports.

SubPage provides a powerful writer tool to create content for blogs, policies, support articles and more. It also provides role based sharing for teams to collaboratively work on their SubPages with permissions.
Now this latest update leverages both these features to provide a Google Doc like experience in writing content for subpages with real-time collaboration. Now multiple authors can able to work on the same content at the same time. Also track cursor of the shared users inside the content to know who is writing what without worrying about duplicating or lost data.
This is useful in a number of cases, for example when writing a policy for your business, it is recommended for the legal advisor and the business owner to edit terms to their business requirements in real time. Or a content writer and marketing manager can collaboratively write their next business blog.
At SubPage, our goal is to progressively make the experience of creating, editing and publishing important subpages for your business as better as possible.
Now SubPage automatically adds a sitemap.xml to your helpcenter, changelog, blog, careers and roadmap pages at their root folders. This sitemap.xml file is auto updated whenever a new link is added or removed or any url change happens.
This helps to boost the SEO of your subpages by making them more visible to search engines. A sitemap.xml file is an XML file that contains a list of all the URLs on your subpage. This helps search engines easily identify and index all the internal links in your subpage, which increases their visibility and helps them rank higher in search results. Additionally, a sitemap.xml file can help search engines understand the structure of your subpage and the relationships between different pages in it, which can help improve the overall SEO of your business website.

A new keywords text box now appears in the item editors of blog, changelog, roadmap and helpcenter articles.
Users can input tags related to the item separated by commas. It serves the following purposes
This is a major update for SubPage app. Before we dwell into the details of this release, Let us re-collect the goal of our application which is to bring page specific features with exclusive editors and functionality tailored for the type of page created.
For example: A policy page like ToS requires a download pdf option, careers requires applicant tracking. But sometimes a page alone would not be enough to serve its purpose. Users may require an outward access to that page or its contents. Here is where widgets come into place. Let us checkout some areas where we connect the dot between widgets and its related page.
Hope you get the idea here, there is a connection between certain types of widgets and its pages. The bottomline is that widgets help to enhance, provides ease of access and even deliver contextual content positioning.
We are happy to introduce widget creator inside SubPage. To begin with we are now providing three types of cookie consent widgets for Policy Pages. Widgets have their own properties and styling that can be customized to match your website. Going forth widget tools will be available for more subpages to provide an all-round functionality.
