Tailoring the homepage for logged in users in iMIS 20-100, 20-200, 20-300


Hi, this is Kasidy with ASI and today we are
going to go over how to tailor the homepage for logged-in users. For example, the homepage a logged-in user
sees versus the homepage a user sees that is not logged in. IMIS gives you the ability to change the look
and feel of the homepage that appears to members and public users. An out-of-the-box example of this feature
in use is seen on the Member Responsive Quick Start Site. There are two home pages that the Member Responsive
site uses. One homepage appears when guests visit the
website and are not logged-in users. The other homepage appears to those who have
a login and have signed in. You have the option to change both of them,
or only use one homepage to appear to all. Let’s get started. For this example, I have already created a
new content record for the authenticated homepage. To create a new content record, go to RiSE
>Page Builder>Manage content. Select New>Website content. We are working in the Member Responsive content
folder, so select the folder to see all the content records within that folder. The Member Home content record is the homepage
for the authenticated users that log in as members. Select the Home content record and navigate
to the Properties tab. We want to enable the option to redirect authenticated
users when they visit the home page. Select User is authenticated from the Conditions
for redirect drop-down. This option will allow us to enter a target
URL or shortcut that will redirect users. You can also select a content path to navigate
to a piece of content. Let’s select the Member Home content record. Click Save & Publish. The Home content record is the home page that
unauthenticated users will see when they visit the website. You don’t have to create a separate content
record for public users; it the home page will automatically direct to the content in
the Home content record. Now that we have created the content record
and redirected authenticated users to the correct home page, let’s link our site’s home
page to the new home page. Go to Site Builder>Manage sitemaps. Select your website from the drop-down. The default navigation item is Home, the item
flagged with a golden star. Select the navigation item. From the Content or URL to link to field,
select the Home content record we just redirected to the authenticated homepage. Save and Publish your changes. Let’s check out the changes. I am logged in as a member and I’m going to
navigate to the Member Responsive home page. Instead of seeing the content in the Home
content record, we are redirected to the content located in the Member Home content record
– the home page for authenticated users. If I log out of Brian Murphy’s account on
the Member Responsive site, I will see the unauthenticated home page. This page is the content in the Home content
record. You can add content to both of the content
records to tailor the home page for members and public users to best fit your organization. Hope this video helped, thanks for watching!
