How to Make a Notion Page Public

As we dive into the world of Notion, one of the main features that stands out is the ability to create public pages. These pages serve as accessible content for anyone with the link, allowing you to share everything from your resume or portfolio to a blog or landing page.

Setting up a public Notion page is a simple process, and it doesn’t require any design or development skills. You also don’t need to worry about hosting or buying a domain. It’s amazing what we can accomplish with just the basics of pages in Notion, opening up a world of possibilities for our content to be visible and easily shared.

So, let’s explore the process of making a Notion page public. We’ll walk you through the essential steps and provide you with practical tips to get your content out there for everyone to see. Happy sharing!

Understanding the Notion Interface

At first glance, Notion’s interface may seem a bit overwhelming. But don’t worry, we’re here to help you understand it better! In this section, we’ll describe some fundamental elements of the Notion interface, making it easier for you to create and manage your pages.

First, let’s talk about the sidebar. We’ll find all our workspaces, pages, and databases here. This is also where we can create new pages or databases, and even import/export content.

When we open a Notion page, we’ll see the main content area. This is where we can add blocks like text, images, checkboxes, and much more. We can easily drag and drop these elements, to create a customized layout for our pages.

Once we’re familiar with Notion’s interface, we can easily set up and modify pages to our liking, and soon we’ll be ready to make them public!

How to Create a Page on Notion

Creating a new Notion page is a simple process. First, we need to open our Notion account and click on the “+” icon in the sidebar. This will present us with a new blank page, where we can start building and entering our desired content.

We can easily format our page by choosing from various elements such as headings, lists, tables, and many more. To insert a new content block, simply click on the empty space and choose a block type from the pop-up menu that appears. By using different block types, we can keep our content organized and visually appealing.

Once we have added all the necessary content to our newly created page, we can give it a name by clicking on the “Untitled” text at the top. Now our Notion page is ready, and we can proceed with making it public by following the steps in this article.

Setting up Notion Page Permissions

Assigning Roles

When setting up permissions for your Notion page, it’s crucial to assign appropriate roles to all collaborators. In Notion, there are several roles that you can choose to assign, such as members, admins, and guests. Each role comes with its access rights, which you should consider to ensure smooth collaboration and maintain data privacy.

Page Link Sharing

For easier sharing of your Notion pages, consider activating the page link sharing feature. By enabling this option, you’ll generate a unique page link that you can share with others. There are two settings you can apply to your public pages – ‘Anyone with the link can view’ and ‘Anyone on the internet can view and search’. Adjust these settings based on your preferences and the level of access you’d like to provide.

Remember, setting up Notion page permissions is essential for streamlining collaboration and safeguarding your content. So, always spend some time to understand and configure the roles and settings to your needs.

Steps to Make a Notion Page Public

Turning on Sharing Settings

First, navigate to the Notion page you want to make public. Click on the Share button at the top right of the screen. This will open the sharing settings for the page. Toggle the switch to make the page public, and you’ll see a link for the public page. This is the link people can use to view your page.

Dealing with Subpages

When making a Notion page public, it’s important to consider any subpages linked within the parent page. All the child pages will automatically be public as well, so you only need to change the sharing settings of the parent page. However, if you want to make a subpage private, you need to go to each subpage individually and adjust its sharing settings.

Troubleshooting Common Issues

Page Visibility Errors

Sometimes when trying to make a Notion page public, you might encounter page visibility errors. Possible reasons for this could be incorrect sharing settings or issues with linked databases. In such cases, we recommend revisiting your sharing options by clicking the Share button on the top right corner and ensuring that Publish to the web is enabled (source).

Access Issues

Another common issue with public Notion pages is access problems, like users being unable to view your content. To resolve this, double-check the group permissions by going to Settings & Members and ensuring the appropriate groups have access to the page (source). Also, remember that linked database views will not appear on public pages unless the source database is shared as well (source).

Advantages of Sharing Notion Pages Publicly

We know that sharing Notion pages publicly offers numerous benefits. For one, it’s an excellent way to showcase our work, such as resumes or portfolios, without having to create a stand-alone website. We can also use public Notion pages to publish content like blog posts or articles, making them accessible to a broad audience.

Another advantage is increased team collaboration. By making Notion pages public, we can facilitate better communication and idea sharing within our team. Moreover, public pages can serve as a central hub for important information, updates, and resources, keeping everyone on the same page.

Lastly, public Notion pages provide a simple yet effective platform for sharing content with external stakeholders. For example, we could create product documentation or FAQs easily accessible to our customers without requiring them to log in to a restricted area. This transparency can strengthen our relationships and build trust with clients, partners, and collaborators.
