Slickstream offers the ability to require visitors to sign in to be able to view content on a your website. This feature is typically used to encourage visitors to become members of your website. Depending on the consent visitors provide when signing up, their email addresses can be used for newsletter distribution and/or as identity information for first party data for ad networks to enable more personalized ads.
We're excited to offer Slickstream to all creators free of charge and hope everyone takes advantage of what it provides. Here’s a little more about what Slickstream does and how the most popular features will improve visitor engagement and revenue for your site.
The Slickstream Highlighter allows you to draw your readers’ attention to any element on your page. When the element comes into view, the rest of the content on the page is greyed out, temporarily highlighting the selected element.

To add an additional administrator to one of your Slickstream sites, go to your portal for that site, select the Config tab and then the Site Wide tab. From there select General and look for the Site Admins box. Add the email address for the person you wish to add as an administrator. Remember that your new administrator will need to sign up to create a Slickstream account and access your portal.
Slickstream now supports email integration with Klaviyo. That means that if you manage newsletter subscribers using Klaviyo, you can automatically upload all sign-ups on your website via Slickstream.
Here are the steps to set this up.
When the Slickstream search panel opens, we immediately display groups of content to offer visitors options before they even enter a search query. Think of this as using the space below the search box to "advertise" your own content. Across our customers we see that a substantial number of visitors immediately click through to these options.
Much of Slickstream's functionality and appearance can be configured in the user portal. However, for those looking for more control there are several options for customizing Slickstream to more tightly integrate into a site.
