Home Page at a Glance

The home page is comprised of 5 widget areas:

  • Front Page 1
  • Front Page 2
  • Front Page 3
  • Widget Above Content
  • Widget Above Footer

Here is an overview of all the widget areas and the widgets that go in them:

Front Page 1

The Front Page sections are all set up as flexible widget spaces. All of the first widgets will extend full width across the page to use as headings. 

The Front Page 1 area has a different flexible layout than the other front page areas. See  THIS ARTICLE for layout examples.

The  Front Page 1 area is the very top section of the site.

In this section, the first TEXT widget is completely blank simply for the purpose of aligning the widgets properly. A title can be added a title in this section if desired. The other three boxes are configured as follows:
