Hero Tile is Very Useful
We probably use the Hero tile the most of all the Social Edge tiles. It works really well for us as a standard cornerstone element on a wide array of places home pages. It helps users with a consistent layout and know what to expect where in terms of navigation for key CTAs. One example is in all of our places we use as mini-knowledge bases for our corporate applications. We get a lot of positive feedback on how this tile looks and operates. It also allows us to use a lot fewer HTML tiles for a similar visual effect.

A hero image is typically placed front and center on a Jive homepage. Given that it's the first visual a user encounters, it often highlights the most important or timely content in the community (or perhaps a Space).
The Hero Tile has one job: connect visitors to top content. So, we sweat the details on this one. First, the Hero Tile can display up to three linked images or "calls to action" in a wide column. Alternatively, you can choose actionable links paired with icons. This tile also shows really well in a narrow column and on mobile.
A published Hero Tile can look quite simple. But it's sophisticated in the sense that you can use the config panel to choose from a number of layouts and looks. For example, choose one beautiful image with a button or intro text with action links or an image with buttons side by side with action links.
- Select layout from three options
- Combine imagery, text, buttons, and links
- Reorder and edit action links
Modify top and bottom margins for a perfect fit with different themes.
Adaptable Color Palette
The config panel makes it easy to specify colors for CTAs and text so your hero image blends into your community's design.
Our Hero Tile supports custom fonts from Google Fonts or your self-hosted fonts.
Layout expands or contracts within a wide or narrow column and in mobile wherever it is placed.
