Home Page

Home page is the most important page for a site since it is the site's (company's) face to the world and is the page that is usually visited the most.

The layout and the theme of the home page is defined by templates. However, templates do not know which content to show. In order to achieve this, JadaSite provides a tool for site administrator to define the content to be shown. JadaSite then takes the content configured by site administrator and merge it with the templates to produce the home page.

In a typical home page, there is usually a block of content that should be emphasized (refer as feature in JadaSite). This content can be the overall description of the site or company. It can also be important upcoming events such as boxing day sale. In addition, there are usually other contents on the home page. To accommodate this, JadaSite provides a tool to allow the site administrator to assign contents or items to the home page, as well as flag one of the items or contents to be the emphasis on the home page. Information on the home page can also be sequenced to allow more important information to be shown closer to top.

It is important to optimize the home page for search engine. Since HTML title text is one of the most crucial factor for search engine, JadaSite provides a tool to create the ideal HTML title text.
