Customizing the Home Page Layout

The default Home page layout consists of two columns.

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

  • The second column contains two portlets: Announcementsand Popular Articles.

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

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

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%.
