This section explains what the Content Source template is and which configurations can be made.
The space overview page (or in the case of a Scroll Document, the document root page) will be transformed into the overview page of a content source.
The content source template offers several different layout options as well as optional components. It can be styled with different layouts and can contain additional content, like a description of your content source.
You can choose between three different layouts for your content source that will each give your help center a different look and feel. Here are the three options:
The hero layout displays the space home page with a large hero banner that wraps the search bar. This layout looks similar to the the Portal Page and is particularly useful if you're only using one content source in your help center.
The banner wraps the space overview page title (or in the case of a Scroll Document, the document title), the excerpt macro text that is placed on the space overview or Scroll Document root page and a search bar with a background image.
You can select your own background image from the attachment picker drop down menu. Upload your images to your space overview page so that they are listed in the drop down.
If you’re using a Scroll Document as a content source, you will need to add the attachments to the working version of the root page of one of your documents (get there by clicking on your document from the content source table, then selecting ‘working version’ in the version table).
In the bottom part of the page, you can choose how you want users to navigate to the pages within the space. You can choose between the list view, tiles or the accordion menu which is shown in the example.
The detail layout includes more information about the space and is particularly useful when using a multi-space help center in which every space is centered around a different product.
The banner isn’t as prominent as it is in the hero layout and only wraps the search bar.
Detailed information about the content source. The logo of the content source is shown beside the content source title (e.g. space logo and space overview page title or document cover image and document title). Also a description for the content source is show which is taken from the excerpt of the content source (e.g. expert macro from the space overview page or document root page).
In the bottom part of the page, you can choose how you want users to navigate to the pages within the space. You can choose between the list view, tiles, or the accordion menu which is shown in the example.
Choosing the article layout will display your content source overview as an article and for example reveals the content of your space overview page.
