Core Publisher Training

In creating a header for the responsive theme, we've aimed to strike a balance between flexibility and simplicity. We want it flexible enough for stations to achieve their branding requirements — and simple, so we can ensure it works at all device sizes and is easy to maintain.

We are excited to announce a special Core Publisher training opportunity for all current Core Publisher users to refresh and sharpen their web production and site administration skills.

Core Publisher Summer Training Sessions: August 4 ­through September 15

We are excited to announce a new way for us - Digital Services and Stations - to share ideas; ask questions; and collaborate around tips and tricks on using existing features within Core Publisher.  We’re providing office hours with your friendly product owner, Erin Teare Martin, and the Station Relations team!
