Customizing the home page layout

Deprecated in 2021

NOTE: This article describes deprecated functionality that only works with Alloy Navigator 8.7 and earlier. For up-to-date functionality, see Customizing your SSP homepage with pre-defined templates.

The default Home page layout consists of two columns.

  • The first column contains two portlets: Tools and Latest Updates.

  • The second column contains three portlets: Announcements,Popular Articles, and Popular Service Catalog Items.

The Home page layout is defined in the WelcomePage.config file as follows:

	<add Width=".6">
	<add Width=".4">

Each <add Width=" "> ... </add> statement adds a column with a specified relative width. By default, the first column takes 60% of the page width, while the second one takes 40%.
