We're in the middle of some fast-moving changes to the Forem Admin experience, so we've paused documentation updates for the time being. You may find that the docs are now outdated in parts. If you have any questions, please visit to request additional support. We thank you for your patience and hope you're liking the changes!


Campaigns (accessed from /admin/customization/config) are a way to highlight information to your audience. You can use campaigns in whatever way suits your needs; most often at DEV, we use them to highlight community celebrations or other call-to-actions.

Campaign features include:

  1. Large banner on homepage
  2. Highlighted articles under a certain tag on homepage righthand sidebar
  3. Righthand sidebar image for campaign

You can choose to enable each feature individually or at the same time.

1) Large banner on home page

2) Highlighted Campaign Articles & 3) Campaign Sidebar Image
