Hub #1

Template Overview

The Hub is a content-heavy page specifically aimed towards regular and engaged church attenders. This page serves to provide the latest media and make it easy for regular attenders to be engaged.

Your Hub #1 templates allows up to 9 content sections and provides the same options as your main site full width sections.

Content > Sections

Content - This is the main content block and supports the content/styles of the page content.

Background Color - This color allows you to set the background color of the section and should be a html hex value.  A good reference is http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_colorpicker.asp.

Background Image - This serves as the section background image.  This image should be 1,400px in width by the desired height.  The height will depend on the amount of content in the section.  A recommended height would be between 600px and 1,200px (double for retina).

Dark Background - Selecting this checkbox displays the content in white color on top of the site default section background color or dark background image.  

Large Padding - Adds additional horizontal padding to make the container taller.

Narrow Container - Displays the content at a narrow width.

Parallax Background - This option turns the Background Image into a parallax background.

Icon Class - Selecting the page checkbox "Section Nav" will place a section navigation at the bottom of the page on mobile devices allowing users to scroll between sections.  If this option is used the section Description will be the name of the link and the Icon Class is used to add a custom icon to the link.  If the page checkbox is selected only sections with the Description field used will display in the navigation.  To see a full list of available icons: http://mk041.dev.monkpreview.com/_assets/fonts/icons/icomoon/

Sections and Monklets

Overview

Monklets defined with "Hub 1 Monklet " in the title can be inserted in the content area of a section.  Inline parameters are not currently supported, except for the blog and link list monklets.  Monklets are setup to display all items from a given module.  *To filter items you can assign a group to the page (in addition to the default site group).  Once assigned all monklets will pull in and display all matching items from modules with the same group.  This applies to all modules, except the "Hub 1 Monklet - Connect Links" and "Hub 1 Monklet - Link List" monklets as these both use link list and groups are not supported.

NOTE: Groups are supported throughout all modules (sermons, blogs posts, articles, and events) so using a single group will work seamlessly through all modules.

Content > Link Lists > "Hub Link"

This Link List should contain a link to your Hub landing page.  The name of the link will be used for the title and landing page name.  If an image is used it will be the Hub template logo icon.  The logo will be capped at a width of 390px but is recommended to be a square icon image (re. 46px in width by 46px in height).
