Home Layout Settings help you build custom homepages using featured content sections for each Organization in your account - as well as the Locales within an organization. Home Sections properties let you customize each content section included on a homepage by tailoring things like:

  • the Section Name and if it is displayed on the homepage
  • the Section Description - if needed
  • the Layout, or number of items included in the homepage section
  • the Overflow, or how additional content fits into the homepage section
  • which Groups can see the section
  • the type of user that can see the section

This article walks you through accessing Home Section properties, gives an overview of all Home Section properties - as available across content sections - and provides visual examples of the properties affect on a content section.

Heads Up!

Custom Banner Sections, Live & Upcoming Sections, and Followed Topic Sections feature variations of the properties based on the nature of the content included in each section.
