Home page

Written by Jane Atkinson on . Posted in Documentation

Your home page is the one that most visitors will see when they first visit your site. It's your opportunity to make a great first impression, and all parts of it are worth thinking about carefully.


Home page heading and content

Main Heading

This is the text that appears at the top of your home page, just below the header. It's likely to be one of the first things that a new visitor notices.

Google also pays attention to it when compiling search results.

Therefore, make it unique and compelling.

 You can use [b]bold[/b], [u]underline[/u] and/or [i]italics[/i], plus [br] for a line break. There's a limit of 100 characters, including the formatting codes.


The content also needs to grab a new visitor's attention. Make it attractive and distinctive. Keep the site description and main heading in mind as you write it.

For help with some of the technicalities, see http://support.toastmastersclubs.org/doc/item/adding-and-editing-page-content.

Web Page Tools are for backing up and restoring text, replacing and rotating images, and checking for bad links. See Backing up custom content and Adding and Editing Page Content for details.

Background Color

You can set the background colour for the home page.
