Home Page Layout Options

When it comes to your Docs site, there are two different options for setting up the layout of your home page: Most Popular Articles or Categories. Each have their own unique look and advantages, and you can switch between them easily in Docs site settings. This article is all about the home page layout options we offer. 

Docs Site Settings are available to the Account Owner, Administrators, and Users granted permission to manage Docs settings. See User Roles and Permissions for more on permissions.

The Most Popular Articles option gives you the opportunity to show your customers exactly that: your most popular articles. It comes in handy when your customers aren't sure where to start looking for help, or what to search for. 

If you have multiple Collections, only the article links will be shown.

If you only have one collection and choose the Most Popular Articles option, we will show both categories and your most popular articles.


The Categories option lets you display all of your categories in a grid. This allows your customers to see an overview of the topics available. 

Categories will only be displayed if they have at least one published article.
