🚀Just Launched🚀: The New and Improved Layout Editor!
We’re beyond excited to officially announce the launch of our new and improved community layout editing experience!
We recognize that designing and styling your community wasn’t always the simplest experience with Vanilla – that’s why we’ve put a mountain of effort into making it as easy and flexible as possible to manage and maintain your community pages, without requiring any custom code.
Theming your community starts with a simple step-by-step page designer. We’ve built a catalogue of widgets – which are community components such as banners, leaderboards, category tiles, discussion lists and more – which you can place on your homepage, style with a few clicks, and preview what it looks like in real time. For more advanced styling use cases, the ability to add custom code is still an option.
Showcase the content you want, in the way you want, to create a look and feel that is unique to your brand. The best part is that SEO optimization, mobile responsiveness, and accessibility standards are all built in, ensuring that the community is a discoverable, inclusive experience for everyone.
The new layout editor is available now for community and sub-community homepages. We’re continuing to invest in bringing this functionality to all core community pages such as Knowledge Base, Groups, Events, Profile Pages and more. Check out the Higher Logic Vanilla Success Community for a sneak preview into our layout editor roadmap, and the documentation for more information!
