Homepage and content page layouts

Layouts are UI elements that define how blocks of content can be added to a page.

Layouts are used for homepages and content pages. Layouts provide the following functionality.
  • Administrators can define custom layouts for homepages or content pages.
  • Users who are allowed to modify their homepage can select a layout for their homepage.
  • Users who are allowed to add content to their homepages can choose where in the layout to add content.

Most successful web sites use a fairly limited number of layouts to define the structure of a much larger number of pages. For example, a web site may have several dozen pages, but only two or three layouts.
