It is quite common to see big banners on the homepage of streaming platforms in order to display a brand banner, highlight the latest content or playlists, propose promotions or news. OKAST shows you how to do all 3 at the same time!

 

Whatever the need, here are the steps to follow to display a banner:

 

1 – Create a new smartlist, that you can call for example “Banner Homepage”.

 

2 – Add in this smartlist what you want to display on your main banner

  • For contents or smartlists: just add the elements to this smartlist
  • To display a simple image: first create a “display” element (for more info on this subject see this article ), then add this “display element” in the smartlist

 

 

3 – Create a component on the homepage

From the menu Platform > Layout > Homepage, create a new component that you can call for example “Carroussel Banner Homepage”.

4 – Configure the element

Choose the 16/6 format for image and only 1 visible element. For the other configurations, it’s up to you but here is an example that you can reproduce:

 

Don’t forget to choose at the very bottom the Home Banner smartlist to display in your component!

There you go, you have a nice banner for your platform. You will then be able to update its content by modifying the elements of your smartlist.
