1. flyer location

You can update the geographic location of your flyer. We use this information to properly tag your flyer in "Trending" flyer boards or "Featured" flyer boards.

Try tagging by where the flyer's subject is, versus where you're editing it from. For example, if you're in Florida editing a flyer about a New York event, set the location to "New York."

2. The Update and Save buttons

On the right side of the Editor, there are two big gray buttons -- "Update page" (or "Done Editing") and "Save now."

Update Page (Done Editing) - This button saves the flyer and changes the online, published version to be the most recently edited version of the flyer. It's like a "save draft" and "publish" button all in one.

Save now - This is like a "save draft" button. Once you click this button, your changes are saved to a "draft". It won't change the online, published version (so visitors still see the old version).

Please note:

In order to ensure that you are viewing the most updated version of your flyer, make sure to click "Update Page" when you are finished with your most recent edits. If you do not do so, your flyer will be in "Change" mode, which is a draft.

3. Design

On the right side of the Editor, under the "Design" section you can control style, background, color, and font.

Pro users can also upload their own "Custom Backgrounds" in this section. Click here for more information on how to do this.
