This Learning Center entry describes using the page template "welcome_highlights_template" for your "welcome.htm" page. By the end of this entry, you should be able to a) edit the language entries that power this page, and b) understand how to change this template's configuration options.

I. Background
This entry assumes you understand the following topics:
II. Turning On This Template
  1. Tell the Welcome page to use this template
    • Go to "Admin Tools". Choose "Edit (advanced)" from the left navigation.
    • Under "Select Page to Edit" choose "welcome_main" from the drop-down, and click the "Select" button.
    • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the edit icon (a pencil over a piece of paper) to the right of the "template" field.
    • Enter "welcome_highlights_template" in that field. Do not include the quotes. Make sure there are no spaces before or after this text.
    • If you go back to your welcome page, you will see that the new template is in place.
  2. Turn on the "Spotlight", "Did You Know?", and "Community News" areas
    • Go to "Admin Tools". Choose "Database Settings" from the left navigation
    • Choose the "Navigation" option under "Kinds of Database Settings"
    • Set the following options to "True" and then Save: blog_quick_display_welcome_on, member_spotlight_enabled, quick_facts_enabled
III. How to Edit "Spotlight" and "Did You Know?" Content Areas

• Click on "Admin Tools". Choose "Edit (advanced)" from the left navigation

• To enter your first Member spotlight, click the edit icon (a pencil over a piece of paper) to the right of the "member_spotlight_001" field. What you enter on the next page is HTML that includes the photo of the member you are highlighting.

• When done, click the “Save English” button and you will be returned to the “member_spotlight_array” page.

• To add another Member spotlight, enter the string "member_spotlight_00n" in the "New Field Name:" box, and click "Create". Then follow the same steps as above.

For a more detailed explanation, please see the post How to Add/Edit "Member Spotlight."
