Home Page Content

Your time bank's coordinator has customized the home page to make specific areas visible to:

  • The general public--for example the login box, information pages, and external links
  • Members--for example events, recent offers and requests, and coordinator names
  • Coordinators--for example exchanges and who is online

Home Page Layout

The home page arrangement varies depending on the device (computer, tablet, phone) you are using. There may be as many as five columns (wide computer monitor) or as few as one (mobile phones).

Menu bar

At the top of the home page you will see the main menu bar.

Information bar

Below the menu bar is a small bar that provides information to the logged on user.

At the right side of your screen you will see the side bar with

  • the timebank's logo

  • links to recent news (if there are any)
  • links to pages

Home Page Pages

Pages created in Community Weaver can be configured to be visible on the home page. They will be shown on the main part of the home page together with Home Page Blocks. Pages will be shown as a teaser with a "Read More" button that when clicked will open the full content of the page. News articles can alspo be configured to be visible on the home page.

Home Page Blocks
