Each section on your home page is able to make use of a special element called a Monklet, which is a short piece of code that dynamically pulls content from another area of your site (ie: sermons, blogs, events, etc). A monklet is typically added using the content editor of a section or page and looks like this:


The above example uses a monklet called "Section Monklet Upcoming Events" and displays the next three events in the Upcoming Events section on your home page.

Pre-Built Monklets

The following monklets are pre-built for your home page sections and can also be used for the sections on the Subpage Fullwidth template.

Section Monklet - Featured Items

This monklet displays three linked items, each with a small photo (482 x 314 pixels), a title, and a special icon. The monklet is used in conjunction with a Link List (managed under Content > Link Lists), which contains the content for each featured item.

The Next Steps section on your home page uses the "Home Featured Items" Link List. You can setup this same structure with a different list by changing the "home-featured-items" title in the monklet tag below.
