LS Front Page B
The ‘LS – Front Page B’ template is used for the home page of a site. This template is best used for departments that want to feature a single main call-to-action or a slider in the ‘Hero Content Area’ along with the flexibility of multiple widget areas for research interests, news, events and other content. Some sites that are currently using this template are:
Specialized Content Areas
In addition to the standard template areas (header, main navigation, content, footer) the ‘LS – Front Page B’ template contains the following specialized template areas.
LS Front Page Hero Widget Area
This area is typically populated with a ‘Content Block’, but other types of widgets could reside here, as long as they’re styled correctly.
LS Content Top Widget Area
This area is typically populated with a ‘Content Block’, but other types of widgets could reside here as well.
Subsidiary Widget Area
Up to four different types of widgets can be placed in this area to display content. The areas will expand across the template depending on how many widgets are placed there. For example, if the user places only two content blocks in this area, each block split the width of the template.
LS Preview Widget Area
Up to two different types of widgets can be placed in this area to display content. Similar to the Subsidiary Widget Area–if only one widget is placed in this area–it will expand the full width of the column. If two widgets are placed in the area, they will split the column width. This area is generally used for News, Events, or Social Media feeds.
