I've put together five approaches for your "home" page, which you can access by clicking on the "list items" below. You can also find these under the HOME PAGE OPTIONS in the menu.
The examples are using:
CUSTOM, MARQUEE PLUS, and GALLERY PAGES,
which are the most commonly chosen page types to use for a "home" page. You can also find these under the HOME PAGE OPTIONS in the menu to compare easily.
There are two versions of the Gallery and Marquee Plus Page options using two different layouts on each:
GALLERY LAYOUTS:Layout found at the top left once selected in the Builder. Pinboard (grid, slideshow starts once an image is clicked on) and No Thumbnails (single image slideshow)
MARQUEE PLUS LAYOUTS:Layouts pertain to BANNER IMAGES and are found in the "settings" area, found above the first image in the Builder page. DUO LEFT allows you to show vertical and horizontal images in the same slideshow area. CLASSIC is a single image slideshow. Marquee Plus pages have list items which can serve as calls to action for other pages and can display differently by changing the layout at the top left of the page in the Builder
* Page types, layouts, colors, and fonts are independent of template choice and can be customized for any template after it's saved to the site. Templates primarily affect the location of the menu, logo, and social icons, and if it's full-screen or not.
Here are the tutorials for the Custom, Gallery, and Marquee Plus Page set ups. The Custom Page is very versatile and is used as the home page for many of our Template Samples Sites. I highly recommend the tutorial/video be reviewed first before customizing the page so your aware of the page's features.
