What are Site and Category Homes?

Homes are landing pages for the different areas of RefinedThemed ConfluenceRefined Confluence. Use the homes to aggregate content, display useful content, to get an overview, and to navigate to useful content.

Site and Category homes are built using our inbuilt layout editor. Using the editor, you add content layout sections, then add modules to those sections.

The content shown can be controlled by view permissions on each section.
