Home page tiles

The home page tile links are the first visuals the user sees when entering the home page so it is important the links are relevant to the key pages of the site. The examples below are typical of a standard brand guidelines installation.

Brand Toolbox Home Page Tiles

To customise the home page tiles, follow these steps:

  1. Select the Home node/page from the Content section pane.
  2. Navigate to the Library/Guidelines links tab.

  3. You will see 24* editable items in the list marked Row1Item1 through to Row2Item4. These correspond to the tiles on the home page (Row 1 indicating the top row of tiles, and Row 2 indicating the bottom row, from left to right). Each tile has 3 editable items:
    • “Row#Item# Link” references the page that the tile will link to.
    • “Row#Item# Text” contains the headline that appears within the tile.
    • “Row#Item# Image” references the image used within the tile.
  4. Click “Choose...” next to an element marked “Link” to select the page the tile will link to. On selection, the link and the title of the page will change.^

  5. Enter a headline in the text field next to an element marked “Text”. This headline will appear in the tile.
  6. Click “Choose...” next to an element marked “Image” to select an image to sit within the tile. The images currently appear in the following folder within the Media section (and must be no larger than 102 x 70px @ 72dpi and saved as a transparent PNG-24):

  7. Once you have made your selections, remember to click Save and publish to make the changes visible on the home page.

Note: Tile background colours cannot be changed via the Brand Toolbox CMS. They will need to be changed by the Brand Toolbox development team, upon request.

^ To hide a tile, simply clear/delete the current selection on the property marked “Link”

* Tile “images” on early versions of Brand Toolbox (prior to v3.2) cannot be changed via the Brand Toolbox CMS (if you have an early version, only 8 items will be shown in the list). These images will need to be changed by the Brand Toolbox development team.
