Hi, I'm Marc, the creator of Leafpub. Thanks for trying it out!

I spent the last two years building Leafpub because I wanted to bring a better publishing experience to designers, developers, and bloggers everywhere.

If you enjoy using Leafpub, please pay it forward by telling someone about it or contributing to the project.

Getting Started

I've included a few sample posts to help you get started. Please read through each one to get an idea of how things work.

If you need help, head over to for assistance.

Admin Panel

To access the admin panel, go to:

Quick Tips

Need to find something? Press CMD/CTRL + P to open the locater. You can search for posts, tags, users, and more with just a few keystrokes.

Want to delete more than one post at a time? Hold down CMD/CTRL and click, or select a range by holding down SHIFT. This works for tags and users too.

Leafpub saves a copy of every post you publish. From the editor, go to Settings > History to view them. You can also view, restore, and delete revisions from the history panel.

Save time using keyboard shortcuts. You'll find a list of all available shortcuts in the docs.

You can backup your entire website — including content, uploads, and themes — by going to Settings > Backups. Leafpub will generate a single .tar file for your convenience.

Oh, and don't forget to update your profile! Set your avatar and tell us about yourself by filling in your bio. Head over to Users to do that now.
