Interactive Page Customisation Demo
The NUI Galway page layouts allow some custom behaviour by entering certain keywords into the DC.Keywords field in a section's Metadata tab. This is often used to turn a site's homepage into widescreen, or make a 1-page site with no left-menu.
This page is intended to let you see what options are available to you and how they would look. So feel free to click on things to see what they do - at any point you can undo all your changes by clicking the 'reset' button.
Common Page Customisations
Here are some standard Home Page Customisations. Select any one to see what it looks like:

Here are some standard 1-Page Site Customisations Select any one to see what it looks like:
Landing Page Pre-sets
Landing pages are pages your visitors find links to on other sites (e.g. google). They are not necessarily your home page but they are the first page the visitor sees when they 'land' on your site:
Landing Page Image Options
Advanced users can upload their own image to use and make their landing page use it by copying a piece of code we supply and making a small change to it so it references their image. For full information, see our Landing Page Example Page
You've chosen a wide-screen (i.e. no left navigation bar) option, so there are some things to think about:
1. You need to have alternate site navigation
If this is not a 1-page site, then you need to put content in your page to replace the now-hidden left navigation bar.
The easiest and quickest way to do this is to add a 'Widescreen Navigation' content type to the page. It will automatically build a 2-column button menu, containing everything your side-nav would show. See the training examples page for an example of this.
If you want to use custom images for your menu links, you can create one link per image with 2-column promo image boxes and 3-column promo image boxes, or Landing page boxes. For 2 links per image, use widescreen promo image boxes (2 Columns), or its 3-column variant.
2. Consider a banner image
Unless you've chosen a landing page (which uses an image in the header), your page may benefit from a full-width image (that is usually also a link) at the top of the page. There are 4 content types to allow you to do this: Widescreen Landing Page Hero Carousel, Home Page Hero Image Carousel, Promo Box Large, and College Page Hero Image.
Add a Tag Line
A tag line can be added underneath the page title. This looks especially good on Landing Pages and one-page sites but can work on home pages too.
Suppress Inherited Content
Sometimes your page inherits content that you want to appear on other pages but not this one. On any page, you can suppress this inherited content:
