NOTE: The below only applies if you use the 'Classic' template or are bypassing the homepage on any other template. This does not necessarily apply with a template that has a dedicated homepage since this will act as your landing page anyway.
For EHQ sites that have more than one project, the question of how to structure the site logically is an important one.
If you have an EHQ site with multiple projects activated, it is good practice to set up a landing page to promote consultations and direct visitors to projects of interest. Arguably, the three most prominent example is:
As you can see, there are no engagement tools enabled on the page. This space is solely used to promote the various projects that are either live or have recently been archived. All three site admins utilise the news feed tool to briefly introduce the various project and to link through to them. In addition, on the right hand side are different widgets enabled that allow the site admin to subdivide projects in various categories, such as 'current projects', 'archived projects, etc. This can be achieved with the 'Related Projects', 'Important Links' or even an RSS feed.
If you want to set up your own landing page and link through to your various projects, here are, in brief, the steps that are involved. Note: This landing page is essentially just another project.
Step 1: Create a new project.
Step 2: Start populating this project with widgets and the news feed - keep in mind this is an overarching landing page so any information in the widgets should be generic to your whole site (not project-specific).
Step 3: Use the news feed to introduce your projects and link through to your various project pages through the title link. When you do this, make sure you use the correct link. You can also rename your newsfeed tab so that is reflects a more appropriate label - e.g. Consultations, Get involved, Have Your Say etc.
Step 4: Publish the project when ready and tell us about it at email@example.com. We can then make this project your landing page.
That's all. Since this is your landing page and the first page your visitors will see, you should maintain this project as best as you can. This means, most importantly, updating it regularly when new projects are launched and making sure that all links work at all times.
