Main layout options

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

  1. Customized icons and links

    The Customized 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. You can have as many custom blocks as you need. 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.
