An introduction to Publish Settings

In this article, we’ll introduce you to Publish Settings found in the GemPages Editor, and everything you need to know to make the most out of this feature.

What is Publish Settings?


Right from the get-go, Publish Settings was meant to be a hub where you have access to all page activities and configurations. This means the feature is constantly being developed, and the Publish Settings panel will expand with more powerful configurations as time goes on. Our help documentation will also be updated as soon as new things are added!

How do I access Publish Settings?


Step 1: Go to your GemPages Dashboard, and select one of your pages to enter the Editor via the “Edit” button.

Step 2: Locate and click on the 3-dot button on the farthest right to bring up more options

Step 3: Click on “Publish Settings” at the bottom of the menu.



A new panel will appear. The Publish Settings panel is made up of three tabs: General, Layout, and Advanced, which we will cover in the next section.

Publish Settings Configurations


For Landing pages and Blog posts

  • Search Result Preview: A live preview of your page on the search results page will be displayed here.
  • SEO Page Title: Edit your page title here



  • Page URL and handle: Input your prefered page URL address.  
  • SEO description: Fill in the meta description into the field.



Social sharing

You can now upload and use a Featured image (thumbnail) for your page right inside the Editor instead of going to the Shopify Admin panel.

Simply click on the “Upload Image” button and select the image from your device storage.



For Homepage, Product pages, and Collection pages 

These page types are directly managed by Shopify, and they only use GemPages as a template applied on top. For that reason, SEO-related configurations will have to be done from your Shopify Admin panel. See this Shopify article for more details.




Here, you can toggle Lazy Loading on or off. Check out this article for more information on the Lazy Loading feature.



Lazy Loading is only available for the Business and Advanced plan. Visit our plan and pricing for a full comparison of all plans.


In this tab, you can decide to show or hide the Header and Footer sections of your page.

Your saved option will apply as soon as the page is published, however, the Editor will not update until you refresh the page.
