Homepage layout options

Main layout options

Usually, а Home page template of a theme consists of three main blocks.

  1. Custom blocks

    Custom blocks are just links to any pages you want. It could be a page on your main website or a Category/Section/Article at your Help Center. They are just placeholders and are completely optional. Once there are more than the default number of icons, a new line is created. Usually, we use Streamline Icons, but it is possible to use any other icons too.

  2. List of categories

    Each category is presented as a tile. By clicking on a tile, you open a category page.

  3. Categories tree

    This is a list of categories in a Help Center. Each category contains a list of sections. Each section contains a list of six articles with a link to more articles if there are any.
