Homepages are the first point of contact and the jumping-off point for your users into other areas of your platform. The information and news you gather and display on the homepage should give your users an overview of the essential topics in your platform. Give your users a glimpse of what's in store for them and inspire them to explore the platform further.
These are the features of homepages:
- Creating homepages and homepage sets: You can create homepages and homepage sets in the Administration. The editors, visibility, and order of homepages can also be determined. Learn more in this article:
- Designing homepages: After a homepage is created, content has to be added to it by adding widgets and, if you want, a hero teaser. A newly created homepage is empty until it's designed. Learn more in these articles:
- Optimizing homepages for mobile use: It's possible to include a homepage on the mobile app, but not all widgets are supported. To ensure a mobile-friendly display, we recommend optimizing the homepage for mobile. Learn more in this article:
These are the permissions related to homepages:
