Hero Images

The Hero, a large banner image or graphic, is prominently placed front and center on the home page. It is often the first visual element a visitor encounters on the site and presents an overview of the site's most important content.  The Hero image can be static or dynamic, and can include additonal content of a title, summary, and/or link.

Components for Home Page Layout

10 Available Components

*The above components are created on the home page. We have the option to build components in a separate folder and then call them to multiple areas of the site. The benefit here is that we update the component once even though it appears on multiple pages or sections of the website.

Section Explained

The ST4 template allows us to add sections to the home page. The Sections of a home page are comprised of a section heading and a wysiwyg editor for section main content.

Editors can add one to three columns underneath each section.  Each column can contain a headingmain content, and various components

See sample sections below.

You can a backgound to make content stand out or a sidebar with your choice of component to guide readers' eyes throughout page.
