Adding Featured Content Tiles

Adding Featured Content Tiles

This article will explain how to add featured content tiles to your site. Featured content tiles allow you to feature any page on your site or an outside link on your homepage. Featured Content Tiles are only available to Pro users on the Highland, Wilshire, Beacon, and Newbury themes.

If you do not have this feature and are interested please reach out to our sales department at 1-800-728-8391x2  content1.png

When added, tiles will appear between the slideshow and the featured listings.  You can add up to four tiles to the home page.

 

Selecting a premium theme

To start you will need to make sure you select one of our newer themes: Highland, Wilshire, Beacon, or Newbury.   From your Placester Dashboard scroll down the left-hand side and click on Edit Site.
