Posts are the backbone of any organization in Slab. With multiple ways to create posts, we've made it easier than ever to put pen to paper, whether you want to start from scratch or import from another source.

Creating a post from scratch

To create a post, click on Create post in the top right corner of the home or topic page.

When you create a post while on the home page, it will be uncategorized; Creating a post on a topic page will automatically add the post to that topic.

Making a copy of a post

Maybe you want to build off of a post without editing the original version. Make a copy!
