Overview

An overview page aids navigation and acts as the signpost page for a group of generic content pages.

Overview pages act as the top point of groups of content, and aid navigation within the site. They can be generated automatically or crafted manually - or a mix of the two.

When automated, they can dynamically display information about (and links to) pages beneath them in the content tree. The text and images contained in this dynamic information is fed from the page below.

Important content can be visually prioritised or demoted depending on your business or editorial priorities.

Features

  • Auto-summary of section content
  • Content prioritisation options
  • Responsive image support
  • Adaptive layout for mobile
  • Supports colour themes
  • CKEditor support on content area blocks
