Managing content layout or adding them to the pages like front page or cluster specific page in the site are implemented differently in version 2.0 of the HR platform compared to version 1.x.

In the new version, adding a block for ‘Featured’ document or ‘Latest’ map on the front page or cluster page is done manually but gives more flexibility to the site focal point to choose whatever content they want to display on those pages given that those content i.e. document or map is already uploaded to the site.

If a user needs to show five or eights key documents on the front page as a  block in the site, she can do so by adding various documents using the page customization feature and can change the order in which document’s link should be displayed which was not possible in version 1.x.
