Home Page Layout Management

September 18, 2007

Home Page Layout ButtonUGAL's Content Management System allows to display dynamic information from various pages of your website on your home page (e.g. the 10 latest news). Up until now the interface to update where this information is displayed was not the friendliest. Enters the Page Layout functionality.

It could not be easier to use: simply drag and drop the pieces of dynamic content around your home page, click "Save Changes" et Voilà, the layout of your home page is updated.

Login to your website and click on the "Page Layout" button on top of your home page. You will be redirected to a screen similar to this one:

Drag and drop content on your home page

Drag the content area from their title (in blue) and drop them to the available containers (in red). The same interface can be used to reorder the content within their container.

Such magic is possible thanks to the hard work of the guys at jQuery, a wonderful Javascript library. We plan on updating a number of areas of UGAL using visual tools like this one. More news soon!
