Page Types overview

Learn about the page types that the hub front end uses, and how they are used

Because pages in the hub front end are automatically generated, there are no "free-form" pages: all pages use a predefined structure (i.e. a template) based on their page type. This makes hub front end pages easy to style consistently, as you can simply style the page type.

The hub front end contains a number of different page types, and each fulfills a specific purpose. This page lists all of the existing page types, along with their purpose within the hub front end. You can find more detailed information about each page type in the Reference Guide: Hub front end pages section.

Page Types overview

All hub front end page types fall into one of three main categories based on their role in the hub front end: tile pages, article pages, and functionality pages.

Tile pages

Pages that organize the content within a hub. These page types all display a grid of tiles that each represent individual content items (the tile grid component). Includes all variants of the stream page page type as well as the hub home page page type (which is effectively a special type of stream page).

Pages in this category all contain the class uf-tiles-page, allowing them to be targeted for customization collectively.

Article pages

Pages that display the actual content in the hub, such as blog posts and videos. These page types all display "article" body text, in addition to embedded rich media where applicable. Includes all variants of the item page page type, as well as the privacy page page type.

Pages in this category all contain the class uf-article-page, allowing them to be targeted for customization collectively.

Why is the Privacy Page page type not part of this category?

You may have noticed that the Privacy Page page type is in the Article Pages category, but has more in common with the pages in the Functionality Pages category. The reason for this is that, for logistical reasons, a page with the Privacy Page page type also contains the uf-article-page class, which allows it to be targeted collectively with other pages in the Article Pages category. For all other purposes, the Privacy Page page type is essentially a "functionality page".

Authentication pages

The hub authentication and stream authentication features are independent of one another, and can be enabled within a hub at the same time. If both are enabled, successfully logging in on a hub authentication page will not give access to any stream pages protected by stream authentication.
