How to Configure Your Homepage

This article provides the ins and outs of creating and customizing your site homepage. Homepages are landing pages for visitors to your site and are managed from Pages.

A default homepage is given when a new site is created. Unless specifically changed, this will be the landing page for all visitors to your site before they sign in.

Any pages that have been added can be set as the homepage for the site at any time. Once this change has been made, all visitors will be presented with the new homepage upon signing in.

To update the homepage of the site:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Go to Pages
  3. Select the Public Portal tab
  4. Select the page you would like to dedicate as your homepage from the dropdown menu within the Site Homepage section
  5. Select Save

Images can be added directly to a description using an HTML <img> tag then resized to fit your page. Additional formatting can be added using HTML which is accessed by selecting the code icon from the formatting bar.

Links can be created for pages and files after they have been created or uploaded to your site. Direct links to external sites or resources can also be added following the same steps below.

TIP! Copy the link for the resource before beginning the process of adding a link. The image below shows how to copy the URL of a file that has been uploaded to Files.
