Change your homepage layout

The Design tab in the white Admin Toolbar allows you to edit site-wide design elements including your website's theme, color palette, and layout options.

This article explains how to easily change your website's homepage layout in the Design Studio.

How to change your homepage layout


Open the Design Studio

To begin, click on Design in the white Admin Toolbar. Once open, the Design Studio will display your site's currently published theme and page layouts.


Click the Layouts button to browse layouts

Once in the Design Studio, click the Layouts button at the bottom of the screen.

Then, browse the homepage layout options available with the theme you've selected.

You’ll notice that different layouts offer unique features. For example, the layout options may include:

  • A region for a certain number of buttons on your homepage.
  • Homepage feature region options (e.g., different feature region sizes, or feature regions that support video and still images).
  • Different arrangements of your homepage content columns.
  • A Sections layout (e.g., you can design the page to contain a variety of individual content sections; available in select free themes only).

Select any layout, then click Save.

Incompatible layouts

Your currently published homepage layout may not be supported if you've selected a new theme. If this is the case, the Homepage Layout dialog will display a notification (illustrated above). As a result, you'll need to select a new layout from the options that are displayed.


Preview your site's new design

After you've selected a new homepage layout, you can preview your site's new design settings before publishing. Use the Device Display icons to preview your site on screens of different sizes (desktop, tablet, and mobile).


Publish your new design

You can continue experimenting with different homepage layouts by repeating steps 2-3 as outlined above. Once you're ready for your website to be live using your new design settings, click the green Publish button at the bottom of the Design Studio.
