Choose the right app for your content

You build pages using the Web Community Manager apps—they are your content building blocks. Each app is designed to display in a way that is consistent with the type of content contained within the app. Choosing the right app or combination of apps and the right page layouts helps you provide your visitors with adaptive content that automatically responds to the type of device accessing the information and keeps your pages fresh and engaging.


Classic vs new page experience

Some users have a choice of two different ways to display the interface when adding content to the website – the classic page experience or the new page experience. Most Web Community Manager Apps contain the same features in both the new page experience and the class page experience. The only difference is the interface. The information you add is the same in both page experiences.

District and School Home pages are only available in the classic page experience. All other section Home pages are available in both the classic and new page experience.
