Generic One Column Page Type

Developer Notes

  • Page Types have been created using Sitecore's Page Branches feature which lets us define pre-configured pages for Content Authors.
  • These page types can be used as a template to create pages, and are available in the insert options list on the website.
  • When a page is created using these templates then it will already have the Page Design set, predefined components added and their data source items created locally. 
  • Generic One Column Page Type creates a page where the main area is One Column with Hero and Breadcrumb components.
  • This page branch is based on One Column Page template which inherits the Page template which has all the custom metadata fields.
  • Pre-defined Component details:
    • Base Hero variant of EH Hero is applicable here; local data source item name - Hero Banner.
    • EH Breadcrumb has been added.
  • Header Alert, Header, and Footer are rendered using Generic One Column page design.
  • CAs have the ability to add new components and even remove/edit the pre-rendered ones on a specific page in EE.
  • A screenshot of the page is shown HERE, the pre-rendered components are highlighted in the image.
