Provide admins with the ability to move around where items are located on the homepage. This would apply to the rotating photos, news, and upcoming events.
I would agree that the rotating pictures get lost at the bottom of the page as well as being small. We like to feature pictures of our Annual Garage Sale. I usually create a PDF with the photos and post it as a page on the right sidebar. The articles and calendar events would be better served at the top. Optionally, make these objects moveable at the discretion of the website owner.
I would like to be able to add shortcut buttons to our home page and have a selection of standard buttons to chose from. So far we have created a few but not happy with the results. L
Putting on my developer hat for a moment, I’ll point out that if you go through the trouble of giving some control over the homepage layout, it probably makes sense to have a serious discussion about writing this code generic enough that you can use it on all the other pages too.
I'd like to put my own background image behind the banner photo
@Phil Ensign: We strive to keep our websites modern and professional in appearance. Therefore, we do not have plans to allow different images to be added as the website background, as this could lower the quality of the appearance of your website.
However, if you'd like to have additional template options, there is a post created for this that you're welcome to add a vote to and comment on! I've linked this for you here: https://feedback.hoa-express.com/feature-requests/p/expanded-template-options.
Meredith suggested I share my vision of what it might look like if we were able to move the Weather Widget outside of our banner.
Change the size of the banner which can occupy a LOT of territory. Maybe even by page type since the banner is currently identical on every page!
@Dennie Dido: Since this suggestion is separate from this request, we've created a new post for this. https://feedback.hoa-express.com/feature-requests/p/change-the-size-of-the-banner-photo
Good Idea. We use News for short notes as well a Alerts. I would seem this and Calendar might be better at the top of the page so users do not have to scroll to the bottom of their home page to see the items. Would also like to be able to move the Weather widget off the Banner and somewhere else on the Home Page.
@Kim Wilcox: If you were able to move the weather to display somewhere other than the banner photo, where would you prefer to see this on the homepage?
Should apply also to elements overlaid on the banner photo. Option to place top/botton/middle, etc.
