  4. Open the Settings page for your super site and click into the Code page.
  5. First, in the 'Head' tab, copy and paste the code below into the code box.
  6. <!-- Custom font for code blocks -->

SEO

If you want to improve and have more control over your SEO data, you can use Super's built in functionality in the website settings or simply use this code snippet instead. Make sure to replace all the content values with information relavent to your website. Instead of step 5 above, use this code to paste into the 'Head' tab.

Using Super navbar

If you'd like to use Super's navbar instead of Clusters then you can use the snippet below to remove unnecessary padding once you delete the old navbar synced block and add Super's navbar.

.notion-root>.notion-column-list>.notion-column:first-child {
    margin-top: 0px!important;
}
.notion-root>.notion-column-list>.notion-column:nth-child(2) {
    padding-top: 30px!important;
}
/* If you want to add a border to the bottom of the navbar like the original Cluster one */
.super-navbar {
  border-bottom: 1px solid var(--color-border-default)!important;
}

Syntax Highlighting

Cluster uses Prism.js for custom syntax highlighting. The scope of highlighting available through Cluster is limited to Markup, HTML, XML, SVG, MathML, SSML, Atom, RSS, Javascript, Typescript, React/Jsx, CSS, SASS/SCSS, C-Like and GraphQL. For more scope and for further customisability you will need to host and link your own Prism files. Visit this page for more information. You can find a range of colour themes here.

Going Live Checklist

Update all the content on the Notion page to your own needs
Change all links synced blocks
Add pretty links for your pages, projects, and blog posts using Super’s pretty URL settings (Instructional video)

Layout and Synced Blocks

Cluster uses a specific layout structure and synced blocks to maintain good design throughout your site. Check the video out above to learn more.

Adding a new page

  1. Head to the bottom of your Cluster homepage on Notion and open the grey Control Panel 🎛' Toggle block.
  2. Click the 'New Page +' button which will generate a new empty page using the Cluster layout.
  3. Next change the content of the page to your needs.
  4. Then move the page to wherever you need by drag-and-dropping or right click and hit 'move'.

Changing the primary colour

  1. Open the Settings page for your super site and click into the Code page.
  2. On the tabs at the top click 'CSS' and simply copy and paste the code below into the text box.
  3. :root {
      --color-primary: var(--color-green) !important;
    }`
  4. Replace —color-green with any of the options below:
  5. --color-gray
    --color-brown
    --color-orange
    --color-yellow
    --color-green
    --color-blue
    --color-purple
    --color-pink
    --color-red
  6. Save your changes and reload your site.

Adding your own custom colour

In order to add your own brand colour there are a few extra steps.

  1. In order to add your own brand colour to Cluster as well as including the custom colour as your primary colour, you must overwrite one of the existing colours in Notion.
  2. For example, if you want to use a vibrant blue colour like the hex code #7dd17d below, we will now not only assign it to the '—color-primary' variable but we will also assign it to the '—color-blue' variable so we can use it anywhere in our Notion site.
  3. Be sure to overwrite the colour nearest to your brand colour.
  4. :root {
      --color-primary: #7dd1d8 !important;	
    	--color-blue: #7dd1d8 !important;
    }

Using Cluster's blocks

This video explains how to create the unique blocks in Cluster. As a general guide I recommend duplicating items from the 'Blocks' Page and using them throughout the site.

  • To create a bordered subheading use '/quote'
  • To create a button use a '/callout' with a default background colour and a link on a single line of text
  • To create a 'icon cards block' use '/gallery' with properties > card size > small
  • To create a 'cards block' use use '/gallery' with properties > card size > medium
  • To create a 'Call to action text block' use '/callout' with a background colour, a first line of bold text, a second line of standard text and a third line with linked text. Use Shift+Enter/Shift+Return to create a new line.
  • To create a 'Message block', just add a background colour to the text block.

Changing the font

  1. Open your site in Super and head over to the site settings.
  2. Click into the 'theme' page.
  3. Choose a font
  4. 🥳

Removing links from tables

If you want to remove links from tables so that individual pages are not clickable then you can add the following code snippet to the CSS tab on the code page. Please note this will affect all tables with the default view.

From Default view tables

.notion-collection-table__cell.title > a {
  pointer-events: none!important;
	cursor: default!important;
}

.notion-collection-table.wrap-cells .notion-collection-table__cell.title .notion-semantic-string > span {
 border-bottom: none!important;
}

From gallery view tables

.notion-collection-card .notion-collection-card__anchor {
  pointer-events: none!important;
}

.notion-collection-card {
   cursor: default!important;
}
