About the Explore Page

The Explore page is the front door into any community, and is highly customizable to create a unique experience for each campus or organization. The Explore page can be updated to be reflective of the most timely happenings within the community.

The Explore page can be customized using combinations of many “sections,” including dynamic sections that provide automatic updates and changing content.

Section Options

To customize an Explore page, select from a combination of the following sections:

Raft Spotlight

A Raft Spotlight section appears at the top of the Explore page, highlighting the members, content and channels of a single specific raft. The Raft Spotlight is a great option for highlighting a core raft and important content, and can be collapsed by users or expanding to view full content. Only one Raft Spotlight may appear on any Explore page.
